THE world’s longest running TV sports quiz show is hitting the road to give its long-serving cast a “lap of honour”.

The Question Of Sport team will bring their talents to the Brighton Centre as part of a tour which will see host Sue Barker and team captains Matt Dawson and Phil Tuffnell part ways with the show.

The popular trio will make their way to the south east coast on September 12 next year for an evening filled with fun and plenty of sporting trivia.

The Argus:

Sue Barker said: “I cannot believe 2021 marks 24 years since I first joined A Question of Sport and I cannot think of a better way to bring the curtain down on my time on the show than with a live tour.

“The live shows are always hilarious, the interaction with the guests and the audience so special, we cannot wait for this.”

The show’s long-standing team captains were also itching to get going, after the coronavirus crisis crushed the show’s plans for its 50th anniversary celebrations.

Phil Tuffnell said: “We’ve all had so much fun down the years.

“The show has been a huge part of all our lives and the live tours always stick in the mind as a real highlight.

“This tour is going to be very special for everyone involved and the perfect way for Matt, Sue and me to pass the baton on to the new Question Of Sport team.”
