SANDI Toksvig claims sex­ist TV bosses would never hire women to host quiz shows in the past as they thought they were stupid and too weak to hold cue cards.

She fronts two shows, Bake Off and QI but she claims this would be un­heard of just a few years ago.

Sandi said: “Be­ing in charge on panel shows does seem to have been a boys’ do­main but here’s the se­cret: Don’t tell any­body, when you’re the host they tell you the ques­tions be­fore­hand and also give you the an­swers.

“And the cards you have to hold are not that heavy.”
