Viewers divided over Peter Crouch’s Saturday show

It was branded a 'car crash'

| Updated:

Viewers were completely divided over Peter Crouch‘s new show Save Our Summer, which aired on BBC One last night (Saturday, June 6).

The show featured a slew of famous faces and names, including Radio One host Maya Jama, Taskmaster’s Alex Horne, comedian Chris Ramsey and footballer Rio Ferdinand.

Its official description reads: “Peter Crouch, Maya Jama and Alex Horne join forces to save our summer by bringing the biggest names from the worlds of sport, comedy and music back into our lives.

“There are special performances from the gardens of some music megastars, celebrity guests and a sporting tournament like no other featuring some of our biggest sport stars, and Peter takes on some extreme challenges as he tries to Save Our Summer!”

Terrible, embarrassing car crash.

But it looks like in some peoples’ opinion he’s failed, with one person saying the show was a ‘car crash’.

What Saturday nights need

As you can see, many Twitter users were less than impressed with the show, which took the prime time Saturday night slot. But, strangely enough, the show had a huge Marmite effect, with some people absolutely loving it.

And someone else gave a bit of insight into why the whole thing is on our screens.

One Twitter user explained: “If you’re wondering why Peter Crouch is presenting a socially distanced Saturday night entertainment show, it’s because this show was originally commissioned to cover the Euros football tournament and had to be redesigned.”

Maybe getting out to work is the key to a happy relationship during lockdown, with Crouchy’s stunning wife, Abbey Clancy saying they’ve been getting along fine.

The couple have children Sophia, nine, Liberty, four, Johnny, two, and baby Jack.

They also discussed homeschooling their kids during lockdown.

‘Over it now’

Peter added: “I enjoyed home-schooling at first. I’m over it now.”

Abbey explained: “They say, ‘You’re not my teacher.’ It’s so cheeky.”

The 34-year-old model has enjoyed having her 39-year-old former footballer husband at home since he retired in July last year.

She added: “He sold the idea of retirement to me as a completely different thing, where we would be going on lunches together and holidays, all lovely things.

“I think it was partly having four kids – he was like, ‘I’m not staying at home with these. I am getting out.'”
