Richard Osman House of Games host opens up on being single at 49 ‘It’s easier’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Despite this, he insisted he would only do it if he could be himself on the programme.
Richard said to the House of Games star: “I always figured that when I first saw you on Pointless, that you may have found yourself on that show by accident because maybe there was nobody else to do it so you said, ‘I’ll do it cause I get the format!’”
He replied: “Yes, exactly. That it was an accident. I thought, ‘I’ll do it, but I’ll do it if I can be me and nothing else but me.
“‘I’m not going to put on a shiny suit and sort of be, you know, kind of be showbiz jazz hands. I’m not going to, you know, be me.’ And if the show works, great, and then if I want to do another show, I have to be able to make it better being me as well.”
Richard Osman’s House of Games Night airs tonight at 8:30pm on BBC One.
