WOMAN on ev­ery quiz show panel? That’s not enough for Sandi Toksvig. The no-non­sense co­me­dian wants to see more fe­males at the helm and, con­sid­er­ing her tri­umphant takeover as the host of BBC2 quiz QI from Stephen Fry last year, she’s only too happy to pave the way.

“I like to think hav­ing a woman on a chair will soon not be an un­usual thing,” says the 59-year-old, who co-hosts The Great Bri­tish Bake Off with Noel Field­ing.

“Here’s the se­cret – and don’t tell any­body – but when you’re the host they tell you the ques­tions be­fore­hand,” she con­tin­ues play­fully.

“They also give you the an­swers, and the cards aren’t as heavy as I was led to be­lieve. So it’s not that dif­fi­cult.”

So what else do you learn as the woman in charge? The Den­mark­born star tells us more.
