Sue Barker has been axed as presenter of A Question of Sport along with the two team captains, Phil Tufnell and Matt Dawson.

Alex Scott has apparently been lined up as the new host.

What do people think of the change?

Terrible decision indeed. I don't see how the new look would work. Sue Barker is a great presenter. Phil and Matt were a great duo. Overhaul for A Question of Sport after 50 years leave it alone. I'm disappointed by the decision. I'm not sure if a new sports show would work.

Keep the format as it is. But with Alex Scott as presenter it could work.

I haven't watched the show for years. It started out as a light-hearted quiz programme but has steadily become more of an entertainment programme than a quiz show. If the emphasis moves back towards the quiz element, I might start watching again.

I've stopped ages ago as I don't like the 2 team captains, no sad loss. It does need a bit of a overhaul, just need to revert back a bit. I think Alex Scott will make a good host, just need 2 decent team captains maybe Bradley Wiggins and one of the Triathlon Brothers, or 2 females team captains for a change
