Peter Crouch on what Crouchy’s Year Late Euros: Live is all about...

Peter Crouch says: 'We’re basically having a little festival after some of the matches. We’ll have great guests, fun games, and great music. I’ll also be doing a few away days with some of the British players, including Mason Mount, Jack Grealish and Gareth Bale, which were lots of fun to film I can tell you.'

Maya Jama on watching the matches with Peter Crouch...

Maya says: 'We’re all looking forward to it because we’ve been waiting for a whole year. I feel like we need this at the moment and everybody is so excited about the football being there. The studio is literally just outside Wembley as well, so we’ll be able to soak up the atmosphere. We don’t know if we’ll be allowed a live audience yet, but fingers crossed.'

Peter Crouch on the show's special guests and his 'Away Days'... 

Peter says: 'We’re keeping most of them a surprise, but anyone who’s anyone is going to want to be on this show. For a series of pre-recorded films called 'Away Days' I get to go ten-pin bowling with Jack Grealish [this can be seen in the first episode...see below] and clay pigeon shooting with Mason Mount, plus I play pool with Scott McTominay and have a round of golf with Gareth Bale – he’s very good! They’re all really great lads and they could all become national treasures this summer.'

Maya Jama on what Alex Horne & The Horne Section have in store for us...

Maya says: 'They’re our house band, so they do whatever we like and play whatever song we like. They are super funny, so I’m sure there’ll be twists on some classic songs, depending on how the games go. I'm going to see if they can learn some rap music as well.'

What Peter Crouch will do if England win the tournament...
