Richard Osman to host celebrity teatime quiz for BBC Two.
“The show is going to be great fun. Lots of great rounds, lots of competitive celebs, lots of surprises, and, most importantly, so much to play along with at home.” – Richard Osman
Richard Osman’s House Of Games will see the quizzing ability of celebrity participants put to the test ‘in a succession of fast-paced entertaining rounds of knowledge based games’ selected by the Pointless co-host.
Each show finishes with a quick fire round deciding the daily winner, with a weekly champ being crowned on Friday.
The format was devised by Remarkable Television and the beeb has committed itself to 15 episodes.
“Not only does Richard Osman know everything, he can also twist and re-shape that knowledge for fun. In the show, challengers will need to prove themselves worthy as he tests their mental prowess like it’s never been tested before.” – Dan McGolpin, BBC Controller of Programming and Daytime
