England football hero Lucy Bronze will star on a famous and long-running television quiz show.

The 24-year-old, from Alnwick, will be a guest on next week’s A Question of Sport, to be aired on Wednesday on BBC One from 10.45pm.

She will feature on the programme with Ireland rugby captain Jamie Heaslip, pro golfer Andy Sullivan and British sprinter Jodie Williams, as well as team captains Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell.

Manchester City defender Lucy, who is a former pupil of Alnwick’s Duchess’s Community High School, said she is delighted and thrilled to appear on the show, in what will be the 28th episode of the 45th series.

Her mum Diane added: “They filmed it a couple of months ago, but she won’t tell me anything about the results. It was filmed in Salford and she enjoyed it.

“A teacher at the high school had been saying he would know Lucy had made it if she ever got on A Question of Sport, so it is a special event to do.”
