It comes amid the row over claims Phillip Schofield intervened to stop Amanda Holden guest-hosting This Morning when Holly Willoughby was in Australia filming for I’m A Celeb.

Amanda was said to have been told she had the job informally before Phillip’s alleged actions. The row has spilled out into a public spat with Amanda taking shots at Phillip on her radio show, and Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan backing her in a recent interview.

She will stand in for Corden in his show when he is unavailable due to filming clashes with the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special, and his US talk show.

The gaps will also be filled by a string of guests hosts, including sports presenter Clare Balding.

Former A League Of Their Own panellist and comedian Jack Whitehall, show regular David Walliams and British sprinter Dina Asher Smith will also host episodes.

Comedian Romesh Ranganathan, who replaced Whitehall as a panellist, completes the guest host line-up.

Former professional footballer Jamie Redknapp and ex-cricketer Andrew Flintoff will return as team captains.

Zai Bennett, director of programming at Sky, said: “We’re delighted that James is hosting two of the shows this series but appreciate he has other work commitments this year.

“Therefore, we’ve got a brilliant line up of guests to keep his seat warm and we have no doubt that our new guest hosts will ensure that the laughs continue”

Guests taking part in the upcoming series include boxer Tony Bellew, I’m A Celebrity winner Harry Redknapp, gymnast Max Whitlock and former professional footballers David Ginola, Robin van Persie and Jermaine Jenas.

England cricketer Jimmy Anderson, Olympic gold medal-winning hockey player Sam Quek and TV presenter Helen Skelton will also feature.

A League Of Their Own will air on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV later this year.
