Special 1 TV – A topical spoof football phone-in show. The series will be hosted by a puppet version of Jose Mourinho, aka The Special One, and co-hosts Wayne Rooney and Sven Eriksson. Joining their debate will be the likes of Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger, David Beckham and Steven Gerrard, as well as personalities from beyond the world of football such as Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. Each week, Jose and his rubbery cohorts will put their own twist on the week’s headlines with a particular focus on the World Cup goings-on.
To complement the TV show there will be a multiplatform element to include daily video exclusives for online and social media activity across the BBC Three Facebook page, BBC Three blog, BBC You Tube channel and Twitter.
