Strictly makeup artists tell me who is secretly banging who, says Richard Osman

POINTLESS host Richard Osman revealed he knows who is having sex with who on Strictly Come Dancing.

The BBC game show shares makeup artists with Strictly, and Richard, 50, said they give him all the juicy behind the scenes gossip.


"Our makeup artists on Pointless are the same makeup artists who work on Strictly, so we get every single piece of gossip," he told Jamie Laing's Private Parts podcast. 

The in-demand host, who recently released his second novel, added he's too busy for a Strictly romance.

He went on: "I don't have time to do all the training and have an affair… so we get every single piece of gossip, that includes who's banging who, but also who's nice."

One person who always gets a good rap in the telly industry is Made In Chelsea star Jamie.

Richard said he has only ever heard good things about the 32-year-old who famously injured himself ahead of the 2019 series before returning the following year.

Slamming egotistical celebs, he said: "If you're working in television and you're a bully, what a job do you think you're doing that you're so important? It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice."

The infamous Strictly curse is yet to strike this year, but romance rumours have been swirling around AJ Odudu and pro dancer Kai Widdrington.

TV presenter AJ's young nephew put the pair on the spot during rehearsals and asked why they hadn't kissed yet, leaving the pair giggling.

Kai was also heard telling AJ "I love you" following a performance while on Saturday night she affectionately called him "baby".

Richard also told how Pointless's success has taken him by surprise.

It may have racked up a staggering 1,900 episodes in the UK, but its creator said it hasn't been picked up abroad because it's too clunky and baffling.

He added: "It shouldn't have worked as a show. It's not a Rolls-Royce of a format."
