Laura Woods will return to ITV for 'Euro 2024' after stepping back from work after a gruesome injury at home.

The 36-year-old presenter was forced to miss the broadcaster's coverage of last weekend's Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk fight after suffering cuts on her arms and face in a freak accident "swinging a pillow into a glass lampshade".

Now, ITV has confirmed she will be back on screen alongside Mark Pougatch for the upcoming tournament in Germany.

They will be joined by departing Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou as part of an all-star punditry team including Graeme Souness, Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Ian Wright.

Also set to take part are Eni Aluko, Sheffield Wednesday boss Danny Rohl, Karen Carney and refereeing analyst Christina Unkel.

When it comes to commentary, Sam Matterface, Clive Tyldesley, Seb Hutchinson, PIen Meulensteen and Joe Speight will take the lead, with co-commentators Lee Dixon, Ally McCoist and Andros Townsend.

Meanwhile, the BBC's coverage across TV and radio will be led by Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Mark Chapman and Alex Scott.

They will be joined by a host of pundits, including Alan Shearer, Frank Lampard, Cesc Fabregas, Micah Richards, Rio Ferdinand, Ashley Williams, Ellen White, Rachel Corsie and James McFadden.

A number of names are also making their Men's Euros BBC punditry debut, with Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart, Thomas Frank and David Moyes joining the fray.

In terms of co-commentators, the BBC will have Danny Murphy, Martin Keown and Jermaine Jenas up in the gantry.

It's believed both BBC and ITV were going head to head to secure the services of Jurgen Klopp after the 56-year-old manager stepped down as Liverpool boss over the weekend.

However, Mail Sport reports that neither broadcaster has been able to make a deal, with the former Reds chief expected to watch the tournament as a fan in his home nation.

ITV's Euro 2024 coverage kicks off with the opening game between Germany v Scotland at 8pm on June 14, while BBC's coverage starts the following day with Italy v Albania.

The BBC will also show England's first two group game against Serbia and Denmark.
