Footballers Wives heads to BritBox UK
James R | On 21, Aug 2021
Cult noughties drama Footballers Wives is arriving on BritBox UK THIS WEEK for those looking for a different kind of sporting telly from Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso.
Footballer’s Wives are young, rich, beautiful and have everything that money and fame can buy – the designer gear, the palatial homes, the flash cars, the platinum credit cards and the handsome celebrity husbands. They should be having the time of their lives but are actually struggling to keep their marriages intact while their men dazzle the crowds on the pitch and the girls in the nightclubs.
The series, which aired on ITV from 2002 to 2006, stars Zöe Lucker, Gillian Taylforth, Suzie Amy, Gary Lucy and Laila Rouass. It has been one of the most frequently requested series since BritBox UK’s inception in 2019. Now, the streaming service has confirmed that every episode will be made available for subscribers to enjoy, along with every episode of spin-off Extra Time, from 26th August.
