Richard Osman will host new quiz show House of Games on BBC Two
The BBC has commissioned Richard Osman’s House of Games, which will air later this year on BBC Two.
The much-loved Richard Osman is best know for co-hosting popular quiz series Pointless alongside Alexander Armstrong. However, the presenter will now begin a new venture solo as he fronts his own celebrity teatime quiz on BBC Two.
The new show will see celebrities battle one another in the ultimate test of quiz knowledge. The programme will be made up of a succession of fast-paced rounds as the famous faces compete in knowledge-based games.
Each show will culminate with an intense quick-fire round, which will not only decide the daily winner but will build up to the eventual week’s champion each Friday.
Of course, Richard will be on hand to cross-examine the opposing celebs as they showcase their quizzing talents.
“The show is going to be great fun,” Richard said.
“Lots of great rounds, lots of competitive celebs, lots of surprises, and, most importantly, so much to play along with at home.”
Richard Hague, Head of Entertainment at Remarkable Television, added: “Richard Osman’s House of Games is a unique collection of innovative, clever play-along trivia rounds.
“In the very capable hands of Richard, each game is a proper test of knowledge – and with a returning cast of celebrity contestants building warmth and camaraderie throughout the week, this entertaining new format is the ultimate feel good quiz for BBC Two.”
