Richard Osman of the quiz show Pointless is one of the quickest wits on TV. Fact. The guy is a giant of comedy, although actually he doesn’t like people mentioning his height. Fellow panellists – writer and broadcaster Joan Bakewell and comedian Roisin Conaty – and even host Frank Skinner, don’t stand a chance as he tosses bons mots and puns into the conversation with casual ease.
Of course, all the guests put forward suggestions for things to be consigned to oblivion – the pet hates tonight range from gardening to cobblers. Skinner, meanwhile, deftly choreographs the banter for maximum laughs.
However, it’s Skinner himself who gets the best reaction when he tells the heart-warming story of how a little boy left his much-loved cuddly toy behind at his holiday hotel. The staff there then did something wonderful to persuade him that his toy was fine, but just extending his vacation.
Frank Skinner welcomes Pointless co-host Richard Osman, broadcaster Joan Bakewell and comedian Roisin Conaty to discuss their pet hates, in the hope of having them banished to
. Their gripes include Bambi, chewing gum and cobblers.
