James Corden's A League of Their Own returns

James Corden's 'A League of Their Own: US Road Trip' has been commissioned for another series.

The 38-year-old funnyman will hit the road with his pals Jack Whitehall, Freddie Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp for a new round of the Sky 1 sports panel show.

The programme's broadcaster have also requested a further three series of the hit show.

Director of Sky 1, Adam MacDonald, confirmed: "I can't wait to see what James put the guys through in the second 'Road Trip' outing and I'm so, so pleased to have secured another three years of the genre defining studio show."

The 'Late Late Show' host - who moved to Los Angeles in 2014 - will give his three pals challenges across the States in New York, Miami and Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, former cricket champion Freddie, 38, always knew James would return to the show.

Asked if he would ever consider taking over from the 'Into the Woods' star as the main host, Freddie previously told BANG Showbiz: "No, I don't think I fancy sitting in the host's seat. I think James will always come back anyway, he loves doing the show. I'll stick to my chair next to Jack."

'A League of Their Own: Us Road Trip' will return to Sky 1 this autumn.
