Rob & Romesh Vs Is Returning This Summer

The Sky One and NOW TV series will be back on July 8th for the second part of its current season with comedy pair Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan testing their sport skills against members of Team GB ahead of the Olympic Games.

The duo will compete with sporting icons such as Denise Lewis and Max Whitlock in everything from weightlifting to canoeing, and they will be joined by tennis legend Sir Andy Murray for a special episode.

Romesh said in a statement: “If you’re a massive fan of seeing Rob and I setting fire to our dignity, you will not be disappointed.”

Rob added: “Even in a pandemic nothing is going to stop me and Romesh from wearing ill-fitting clothes and making a fool of ourselves on television.”

The first of four new episodes sees the pair attempting the canoe slalom with Mallory Franklin and Kimberley Woods, before moving onto weightlifting and hockey as Rio Olympics hero Maddie Hinch steps in as their coach.

For the second part, Rob and Romesh work with Aaron Heading to hone their clay pigeon shooting skills, while Max Whitlock helps them out with gymnastics.

The episode will also feature gold medallist Denise trying to put them through their athletics paces.

Andy joins them for a special edition episode as they try to get to trips with tennis training and road cycling, which is the retired sportsman’s favourite hobby.

Finally, the last episode will show the best of the last three series.

Romesh previously opened up on working with his pal, and admitted they are always “looking for opportunities” to collaborate on TV.

He said: “Rob’s a really good mate of mine, obviously, and we do enjoy doing the shows together. Our thing is always, we wanna do it if we think it’ll be good

“So we are constantly looking for opportunities to work together just because it’s so much fun.”
