Guests lined up for the new series, which is produced by James Christie, include Mick McCarthy, Mark Warburton, Slaven Bilic, Brad Friedel, Owen Coyle, plus more.

Amy said: “After a memorable first season, I am delighted Sacked in the Morning is back!

“To sit alongside Craig and hear his tales from his time as a manager as well as those from our top tier guests has truly been a fascinating experience.

“A huge thanks to our producer, James, and everyone who has downloaded, listened and shared thus far, I hope we can give you more incredible insights and lots of laughter from the ever-entertaining world that is football management.

Craig added: “I am delighted that we are back, the last series was great fun. Amy and James the producer are consummate professionals and great to work alongside. Hopefully, the listeners will enjoy this series as much as the last. Join us ‘early doors’ as we get going this month.”
