Colin is back in the chair of the BBC Radio 5 live programme from Saturday September 17.

He first presented the show between 2006 and 2013, playing judge and jury as panellists tried to earn points for punditry.

Colin will once again take on hosting duties as a panel of comedians, sports stars and broadcasters offer their irreverent and, ideally, funny take on the latest sporting news and events and play games such as Defend The Indefensible and Any Other Business.

He takes over from comedian Josh Widdicombe and presenter Georgie Ainslie, who have left to pursue other projects.

On returning to the best, indeed only, sports-based panel show on UK radio, Colin can barely contain his excitement. He says: “It’ll never work…”

Fighting Talk is one of BBC Radio 5 live’s most popular and longest-running programmes.

Jonathan Wall, controller of BBC Radio 5 live, says: “Colin is pretending he is not excited, but trust me, he’s thrilled to be back on Fighting Talk and I’m delighted he’s back too.”

Notes to Editors

Fighting Talk is broadcast on Saturday mornings on BBC Radio 5 live.
