UK (BBC and ITV) World Cup TV Schedule

You know the World Cup’s about to start when every supermarket in the country is full of blokes filling up the shopping trolley with crates of beer, Doritos and disposable barbecues. And they’re not just being optimistic about the British summer! England-mania has gripped the nation, with St.George’s flags on cars, rooftops, shaved heads and even Downing Street.

They’ll all be tuning in to BBC and ITV over the next month, with former World Cup hero Gary Lineker leading the line on the beeb, while Adrian Chiles has recently jumped ship to front ITV’s operation. Both stations could have saved a fortune though – no-one will hear them for the vuvuzelas anyway!
