Peter Crouch was on television this evening presenting his new show, Save Our Summer during BBC One’s prime time Saturday night slot. However, those watching at home were less than impressed by the channel’s new offering and took to Twitter to discuss. 

The former football was hosting a new varsity entertainment show, which featured live music, comedy skins and a host of celebrity guests – both in the studio and via live video links. 

Peter wasn’t alone presenting the show, he was joined by BBC Radio 1 host and TV star Maya Jama, as well as Taskmaster’s Alex Horne and his comedy band the Horne section. 

Comedian Chris Ramsey was also a guest as well as fellow footballer Rio Ferdinand. 

This episode was the first of many and while some enjoyed the alternative offering from BBC One, some were not convinced. 

Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “What the hell is this? #saveoursummer.” 

“What am I watching?? 10 minutes of car crash TV is enough. Not even gorgeous Maya Jama can save this… #saveoursummer #petercrouch,” someone remarked. 

A third wrote: “Oh, come on BBC? You’re taking the f*****g p**s putting this c**p out on a Saturday evening! #SaveOurSummer.” 

“#saveoursummer painful this ! Makes mrs browns boys seem like it’s Oscar worthy,” a viewer wrote. 

However, others thoroughly enjoyed Peter’s new offering. 

“#petercrouch #saveoursummer is absolutely cracking! As an avid listener to #thatpetercrouchpodcast  I am living for this! #passthepod #savingmysummer,” a fan exclaimed. 

One tweet read: “Just what I need on a Saturday evening, @petercrouch presenting a comedy/sport program! #saveoursummer.” 

“@MayaJama Love the show so far absolutely hilarious #saveoursummer,” a third said. 

Another commented: “#saveoursummer is laugh out loud funny and I don’t even like football.”
