The show has received widespread praise for its hilariously relaxed, jovial atmosphere.
And as the 2023/24 edition of Europe’s elite competition kicked off on Tuesday evening, the four CBS regulars were present in the studio.
She then turned to Richards, who she often jokingly rips into, adding: “The one and only Big Meeks, Micah Richards, also in the house.
“Good to be back as a team.”
To which Richards responded: “I’m so happy to be back. Ecstatic would be word I would use.”
And fans of presenter Abdo were quick to voice their own delight at seeing the broadcaster back on their screens.
