Cult noughties drama Footballers Wives to launch on BritBox UK

London, August 18th: BritBox today announced that cult noughties drama Footballers Wives will be launching on the service on 26th August. 

One of the most frequently requested series since BritBox UK’s inception in 2019, every episode will be made available for subscribers to enjoy, along with every episode of spin-off Extra Time. 

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.

Footballers’ Wives stars Zöe Lucker, Gillian Taylforth, Suzie Amy, Gary Lucy and Laila Rouass.
