…his new TV gameshow

Richard Os­man’s House Of Games

I in­vite celebri­ties along, but they’re hand­picked to be su­per-com­pet­i­tive – and be driven mad if they lose! Ra­dio host Anita Rani was go­ing, ‘I’m not com­pet­i­tive at all,’ but by the end of the week she was like, ‘All I want to do for the rest of my life is quizzes.’

... Point­less co-host Alexan­der Arm­strong

We’ve worked to­gether for 25 years on and off, and we’ve never had a cross word or row. Part of the fun of Point­less is try­ing to make each other laugh. We’re very lucky to work to­gether, and I’m priv­i­leged to know him.

...his mu­sic ca­reer

Alexan­der has re­leased an al­bum, so I’m go­ing to re­lease a hip-hop mix tape. I’m just lay­ing down the tracks with Stor­mzy, Skepta and Jay Z. I’ll get them in the stu­dio. Er, jok­ing – ob­vi­ously.

...a se­cret tal­ent?

I don’t think I have one, and I speak no other lan­guages. If I was on a desert is­land I couldn’t build a raft... I’d just have to come up with a quiz show to en­ter­tain peo­ple. Hav­ing said that, though, I can jug­gle.

House Of Games is on BBC Two, Mon-Fri, 6pm
