With his trademark banter and unflinching honesty, Kammy sees Chris 'Kammy' Kamara tell the unbelievable stories of his life, revealing how he went from hard-tackling footballer to broadcasting national treasure.

Presenter, commentator, (sometimes masked) singer, footballer, manager and campaigner, Kammy's action-packed career has made him a bona fide British hero. But it hasn't always been plain sailing. Kammy had a tough upbringing, faced racism on the terraces during his playing career and has, in recent years, dealt with a rare brain condition - apraxia - that has affected his speech and seen him say goodbye to Sky Sports. Despite this, Kammy's star has only risen as he's met every challenge with courage, determination and his infectious smile.

With entertaining stories of his playing career from Pompey to Leeds and beyond; his management at Bradford City and Stoke; his crazy travels around the world; of Soccer Saturday banter; presenting Ninja Warrior; and the incredible friendships he's made along the way, Kammy is an unforgettable ride from one of Britain's best-loved broadcasters.

About the Author

Chris Kamara, known to millions as 'Kammy', is one of Britain's best-loved television presenters. A former professional football player and manager, he worked as a pundit and football analyst at Sky Sports for twenty-three years, achieving cult status for his off-the-wall catch phrases and irrepressible enthusiasm. In 2022, he left his post at Sky Sports after being diagnosed with the neurological condition apraxia, which impacts his speech. He continues to present a number of television programmes and podcasts, including Ninja Warrior, Cash in the Attic, UK's Strongest Man and Proper Football.

He joined the Royal Navy at the age of sixteen, before signing up with Portsmouth FC in 1974. He went on to represent several other clubs, including Swindon Town, Brentford, Leeds United, Middlesborough, Stoke City, Luton Town, Sheffield Utd and Bradford City, before he retired in the mid-1990s. Following his retirement from playing, Kamara became a manager, first at Bradford City and then a brief spell at Stoke City. In March 2023 he was awarded an MBE for services to football, charity, and anti-racism.
