Everyone's favourite mechanical-armed beanpole former England goal-getter is back – stronger than ever, we hasten to add – on our screens for a Euros-themed live show, shot under the shadow of the Wembley arch. Here's how to watch Crouchy's Year Late Euros online from anywhere – including for free for anyone in the UK with the BBC.
One of the most engaging and good-humoured ex-pros to have swapped their boots for a microphone, Peter Crouch always has a cracking anecdote up his sleeve, from being best mates with Iniesta, to crashing a go-kart into Dirk Kuyt before the Champions League final (to avoid cleaning out Xabi Alonso), to pretending to bite a bouncer while dressed as a shark.
As was the case on Save Our Summer last year, the main man will have a supporting cast of Maya Jama, Alex Horne and The Horne Section, as well as guests from the worlds of sport and showbiz.
Jack Grealish, Mason Mount and Scott McTominay are also just a handful of Euros stars to make an appearance in special pre-recorded segments with Crouch, who'll also be providing light-hearted but probably quite illuminating analysis of the on-field action.
Since it's live, anything can – and probably will – go wrong, so read on as we explain how to watch Crouchy's Year Late Euros online from anywhere – including 100% free for anyone in the UK on iPlayer.
