Rob & Romesh Vs will return to Sky One next month, the broadcaster has announced.
In three new episodes, Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan will be taking on Team GB Olympic stars across a number of sports, from weightlifting to canoeing, and meet tennis legend, Andy Murray.bRanganathan said: ‘If you’re a massive fan of seeing Rob and I setting fire to our dignity, you will not be disappointed.’
And Beckett added: ‘Even in a pandemic nothing is going to stop me and Romesh from wearing ill-fitting clothes and making a fool of ourselves on television.’
The episodes, which start on July 8 – in the build-up to the Tokyo Olympics – are billed as the second part of series three. The first three instalments aired in February.
An additional show will feature compilation of clips from all their escapades so far.
The episode guide is:
R&R vs Team GB Part 1: Rob and Romesh are on a mission to see if they can join the ranks of Team GB. The first discipline they will be attempting is the canoe slalom, where Mallory Franklin and Kimberley Woods will send them down some sub-zero rapids. Next, they will try their hands at weightlifting before seeing if they have what it takes to be hockey goalkeepers with gold medallist Maddie Hinch as their coach.
R&R vs Team GB Part 2: Rob and Romesh will attempt clay pigeon shooting with Aaron Heading, gymnastics with sporting hero Max Whitlock and athletics with gold medallist Denise Lewis. Will they find their sport?
R&R vs Andy Murray: The pair hang out with British sporting legend, Sir Andy Murray as he models his new sportswear range, before being pushed to their limits in a tennis training session and Andy’s favourite hobby, road cycling.
R&R vs almost everything: The best bits from the last three series. See the boys become drag queens, dance with dancehall legends in Kingston Jamaica, go on a safari in South Africa, perform with Birmingham Royal Ballet and get a rather invasive treatment in Hollywood.
