Alex Scott will continue to host Football Focus in the 2022/23 season.

The former England international, became the first permanent female host of Football Focus at the start of the 2021/22 season, replacing Dan Walker after 12 years at the helm.

Since her retirement from football in 2018, Scott has enjoyed an incredibly successful career in the media, becoming the first female pundit at the World Cup in 2018 and in the same year becoming the first female pundit on Sky Sports.

She has also co-hosted The One Show and Sports Relief.

We can expect to see some familiar faces in the Football Focus studio with the likes of Jermaine Jenas, Dion Dublin, Martin Keown and Michah Richards all expected to feature on the show during the course of the campaign.

One person who won’t be joining them this season is Mark Lawrenson - a staple of Football Focus in years gone by - who has confirmed he will not be returning as a pundit this campaign.
