In celebration of its 1,000th episode, Pointless presenters Richard Osman and Alexander Armstrong – wait for it – switched roles on the quiz show last night. 

As often happens when there are huge shifts in an established element of modern culture, people went a bit mad. 

Reacting to Osman leaving the safe confines of his table and chair to stand up and banter with the contestants, while Armstrong took a seat, fans of the show were in despair:  

Even Osman was a bit out of sorts, after revealing to Radio Times: "I was happy when I got back behind the desk."

Pointless continues as normal this evening with Osman and Armstrong back where they truly belong.
