Newsreader Georgie Thompson has admitted that she is out of her comfort zone on sports quiz show A League Of Their Own.

The Sky Sports News regular described the comedy programme, which is hosted by James Corden, as an "exciting opportunity" in her career.

"James [Corden] is brilliant fun and then Jamie [Redknapp] and Freddie [Flintoff] as team captains are fantastic," she told Sky

"I love being Freddie's side-kick too, we have a good giggle. And John Bishop constantly has me in stitches. If I can get a sentence out I'm really pleased with myself because I'm always laughing."

Speaking about about being the only permanent female on the show, she added: "I was a bit nervous at first. I'm representing womankind in this arena, which was quite a scary thought. But we have female guests coming on which is good for me.

"But it doesn't come down to being a girl/guy thing, we're all a big team together. It's a great show to be part of and it's the fun factor that I've been looking for. I’m loving being a part of it."

A League Of Their Own airs on Thursdays at 9pm on Sky1.
