Crouchy’s Year Late Euros guest stars, time and what to expect


Peter Crouch is back on TV tonight finally hosting the long-planned late night European Championships show on BBC One.

Crouch is teaming up with Maya Jama and Taskmaster’s Alex Horne to host Crouchy’s Year Late Euros, starting at 10.55pm after the opening game between Italy and Turkey in Rome (8pm).

They had to change the format when the programme came out last year as “Save Our Summer” when the tournament was postponed, but this time there will be football to talk about.

What is Crouchy’s Year Late Euros?

The show will be broadcast live from Wembley Stadium.

Former Stoke City striker Crouch explained: “The fact that it’s live and we have a bar and can socialise safely again will be amazing.

“It’s going to be a televised celebration of the big Euros games, live – after they end.

“First and foremost, I’m a football fan, so I’m excited about watching the games and reacting off the back of them. I’m hoping to incorporate everything we’ve missed, football, socialising and being in one place together, at Wembley, it’s going to be big!”

Horne suggests it will be like “Match of the Day… with the fans, a comedian, guests and some nonsense”.

He added: “Peter is not a trained TV presenter – he’s really good and I think he surprised a lot of people with how good he is at it.

“I’m from the world of comedy and music, Peter’s football, Maya is a bit of music and a bit of football actually – she did football presenting at the start, so we’re definitely from three different worlds.”
