Why mov­ing to ITV would be Point­less...

Daily Mail - - Life -

Point­less co- host Richard os­man, who pro­duces the pop­u­lar BBC quiz show that’s said to be a favourite of the Queen, claims he’ll never be tempted to move it to big-bud­get broad­cast­ers.

‘i own the com­pany that makes it so it’s in my power as to whether it moves to itV, and it never would,’ he as­sures me.

‘You’ve got to be loyal. the BBC have stuck with it and put so much time into it and you have to be re­spect­ful of that. And they treat us so well. We would never take it any­where.

‘the bud­gets are so much smaller than they would be on any other chan­nel, and yet they still back it and back it. And i do quite like be­ing the un­der­dog sometimes.’

os­man, who is 6 ft 7 in tall, is dat­ing jazz mu­si­cian sumudu Jay­ati­laka, who is only 5 ft 2 in.

Pre­sum­ably that is a re­la­tion­ship of equals.
