Adam Hills, Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe return to their roots at the outset of the Tokyo Paralympic games in this first outing of The Last Leg. This running prime-time commentary will bring together top-level sporting action and award-winning entertainment, with a fair few laughs along the way.

Coming live daily from BT Studios in the heart of London’s Olympic Park, the boys are joined in the studio by special guests, including friends and family of the Paralympians. Comedian Rosie Jones – who started her TV career as a researcher on The Last Leg for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games – is the show’s roving reporter, bringing all the latest news from on the ground in Tokyo. They’ll also connect to Japan, with live links and interviews with the competitors and medal winners.

And, not ones to miss out on the action, Adam, Alex and Josh will take a shot themselves and compete in 12 Paralympic sports filmed at the London Olympic Stadium across three days, including wheelchair tennis, blind running, archery, wheelchair volleyball, kayaking, swimming, blind cycling and more.

The Last Leg of Tokyo 2020 – Tuesday at 10pm on Channel 4
