Scott says: "It's a weird one"

"It's a weird one.

"I'd say that there's a lot of joy in seeing 90s footballers playing one game back together. It's got  lot of 90s nostalgia.

"It's got a lot going for it in terms of that nostalgia feel, but for some reason they've also tried to shoehorn this healthy eating feel, which is fine but they're trying to do two things at once.

"The other thing is that it's just a LONG show."

Hayley says: "It's a bit like The Full Monty"

"It's a bit like The Full Monty in that it's a bunch of unlikely lads doing an unlikely job, except they're huge England players - except I don't know that because I don't know who any of them are.

"They do a lot of talking about mental health.

"Paul Merson's gambling addiction relapse is a big thing. They talk a lot about regret in their careers and lives. It's a lot like that Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse thing where they sit around and talk about fishing."

Harry's Heroes: The Full English starts on Monday 18th March at 9pm on ITV. Episode 2 is on Tuesday 19th March at the same time.
