Sue Barker, Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell axed from A Question of Sport

THE BBC has axed Sue Barker, Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell from A Question of Sport as the corporation forces a major shake-up for the long-running show.

The news will stun fans of the long-running sports quiz, which is due to go on tour with all three of its stars next year.

Matt Baker tweeted “Thanks for all the lovely messages. I’m not sure how to respond so I’ll have a think 🤔 Needless to say I will miss @QuestionofSport immensely….”

“We would like to thank Sue for her enormous contribution as the show’s longest reigning host over the last 24 years, and Matt and Phil for their excellent team captaincy,” a BBC spokesperson said.

“Together they have ensured A Question of Sport remains a firm favourite with the BBC One audience.”
