Underdog UK game show Pointless (which once bamboozled the Gogglebox cast) has been renewed by the BBC.
Host Alexander Armstrong and expert assistant Richard Osman will be returning with 165 new shows, ahead of its 10 year anniversary in 2019. New Pointless Celebrities specials have also been announced.
Armstrong said, “I cannot tell you how much I adore hosting Pointless and I’m thrilled that the BBC commissioned us to produce over 200 more episodes. I cannot wait to meet a whole host of Pointless contenders and of course, be reunited with Richard who I’ve genuinely missed. But don’t tell him that.”
Tamara Gilder, Executive Producer said, “Our amazing team are already working away on thousands more ingenious questions, finding lots more Pointless pairs ready to play and creating all sorts of treats for Pointless Celebrities on Saturday nights.”
Pointless airs in Australia on ABC.
