OUTSPOKEN former footballer Robbie Savage will join a host of sporting stars as a popular TV quiz-show goes live in Blackpool.

The Welsh pundit will be aiming to prove his sporting knowledge alongside world superbike racer Carl Fogarty, sprinter Christian Malcolm and cricketer Michael Vaughan when A Question of Sport comes to town next month.

Fronted by regular presenter Sue Barker and with popular captains Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell leading the teams, the audience at Blackpool’s Opera House will be treated to all the familiar TV rounds, from ‘Picture Board’ to ‘Mystery Guest’ and ‘What Happened Next’.

It’s the second time the TV show has gone on tour and Sue Barker said: “I don’t think any of us ever envisaged how much fun a live tour could be,

“Seeing the reaction of thousands of people to Matt and Phil’s antics every night was just amazing.”

The tour comes to Blackpool for one night, on Sunday, October 30, as part of a 22-date UK tour.

Former rugby player Matt Dawson, who joined the show back in 2004, said: “You cannot underestimate the adrenaline rush you get looking out at thousands of people in an audience, hearing them laughing and cheering you on, it is so exhilarating.

“The live tour is the biggest buzz I’ve had in a long time. It’s almost like competing in a major sporting tournament.

“We just cannot wait to do it all again.”

And fellow captain Phil Tufnell, who’s been with the show since 2008, added: “We had such a blast on the last tour and we can’t wait to get back on the road. The guests lined up for each city are amazing.”
