Pointless reveals guest hosts with football pundit and Taskmaster stars

OHMYGOSSIP — Gabby Logan, Gok Wan and Mel Giedroyc are set to be guest hosts on ‘Pointless’.
The BBC quiz show, in which contestants have to solve questions with the most niche answer possible, is usually co-hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, but a number of celebrity stars, including Gabby, Gok and Mel, are due to present the programme for the upcoming series.
In a statement to the BBC, the ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ host said: “I’m very excited for my turn in the Pointless co-hosting chair! I’ve been a fan for years, can’t wait to join Alexander, learn a few things and cheer on the winning team!”
The 49-year-old stylist agreed and emphasised he hoped he could “redeem himself” after previously performing “so painfully badly” as a contestant.
He said: “Having appeared on the show as a contestant, and doing so painfully badly, I am hoping by going on and filling those notorious shoes behind the desk, I can redeem myself. I am very excited to be joining the Pointless team in this landmark show.”
Mel Giedroyc added: “Alongside the Roosevelt desk, ‘The News at 10’ desk and that of David Brent, the ‘Pointless’ desk is iconic, and I feel beyond privileged to get to take a seat behind it as co-host for the new series of Pointless.
“The chance to quiz with Xander just makes the whole thing the epitome of perfection – I cannot wait.”
The trio are not the only celebrities due to host the show, as Liza Tarbuck, Chris Ramsey, Anita Rani, Josh Widdicombe, Phil Wang, Hugh Dennis, Ellie Taylor, Rob Rinder and Desiree Burch are also set to quiz contestants in the new series.
Alexander Armstrong admitted he couldn’t wait to “get his [my] teeth” into the new season of the programme, and was happy to be joined by so many “brilliant people”.
He said: “I can’t wait to get my teeth into a new run of ‘Pointless’ with all these brilliant people. I’m so enjoying glancing over to the desk to find so many fabulous faces looking back and furnishing me, and our lovely viewers, with facts.”
