Jill Scott, a stalwart of the women’s game with an illustrious career, provides a fresh and dynamic viewpoint.

Roy Keane, known for his no-nonsense approach and sharp wit, completes this formidable quartet.

Gary Neville, Stick to Football host, said: “At its core, Stick to Football is a conversation about football by people who love the game – just like fans do up and down the country, and that’s exactly what we want to continue to do with these special episodes for the Euros. Each host brings something different to the table and we’ll be delving into our own experiences and looking to add a personal touch to each episode.

“Stick to Football has been a huge success on The Overlap channel, which hit over 1 million subscribers earlier this year, and we’re delighted that we’re now able to bring this show to a new audience on ITV1. It’s the next part of the journey. Whether you’re a die-hard football fan or just looking to enjoy the excitement of the Euros, Stick to Football is the show you won’t want to miss. Join us if you like.”
