We’re really excited to announce that Kelly Cates and Ian Wright are joining our 606 team on BBC Radio 5 live. They will present the nation’s best-loved football phone in for the first time on Sunday, August 18 and continue every Sunday from 6.06pm.

Former England and Arsenal player Ian Wright is delighted to join 5 live. He said:

“It’s great to be back on the BBC. 606 is all about opinions and debate and I cannot wait to share that with the listeners.”

“I’m looking forward to refereeing the best football discussion there is with Kelly and the fans, hearing from people all over the country and analysing the weekend’s action with listeners. I cannot wait to stir up opinion and take those calls.”

With over 10 years experience of Premier League, Champions League and a few World Cups under her belt, Kelly is looking forward to getting into the studio:

“It’s really exciting to be hosting 606 with Ian this season.”

“It’s a great opportunity to hear what real fans have to say about their teams and the game, and really enjoy some passionate debate after all the weekend’s action.”

Darren Fletcher will join Robbie Savage on Saturdays from 6.06pm as football fans all over the country voice their opinions, vent their frustrations and describe how they would do it differently.
