Richard Osman inks major £1.1M book deal

OHMYGOSSIP — Richard Osman has landed a £1.1 million book deal for his debut novel ‘The Thursday Murder Club’.
The ‘Pointless’ co-host secretly spent 18 months penning the crime tome and on Thursday (24.05.19) it was revealed that he’s set to earn the seven-figure sum after publishers Viking, an imprint of Penguin, landed the rights in a 10-way auction.
The 48-year-old TV star admitted he’s “never been prouder” of anything he’s ever done in his career before than he is of his first book.
The new author tweeted: “I have news.
“I’ve spent the last 18 months writing a novel, ‘The Thursday Murder Club’.
“A month ago I finally showed it to someone, and then all this happened.
“I have never been prouder of anything in my working life, and I can’t wait for you all to read it next year! (sic)”
Whilst his agent Juliet Mushens said: “I knew that it would be warm and witty.
“However, I wasn’t quite prepared for how brilliantly ‘The Thursday Murder Club’ would come to life.”
In a statement, Richard quipped that his mother is “delighted” he finally has a “proper job”.
He joked: “To turn from a lifelong reader to a debut author is a dream come true.
“And I’m delighted that my Mum now thinks I have a proper job.”
‘The Thursday Murder Club will be released in 2020 and Richard is also writing a second book for the series, due out a year later.
