Pointless’ Richard Osman has revealed he gets all the gossip from Strictly Come Dancing, including who is having secret relationships, apparently.

Appearing on Jamie Laing’s Private Parts podcast, Richard, 50, said the two BBC shows share the same make-up artists, so he knows all about the behind the scenes shenanigans.

‘Our makeup artists on Pointless are the same make-up artists who work on Strictly, so we get every single piece of gossip,’ he began.

After admitting he’s too booked and busy for Strictly, the in-demand host, added: ‘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.’

This revelation must have made podcaster and ex-Strictly star Jamie, 33, start sweating but, luckily for him, crew members didn’t have anything bad to say.

The former Made In Chelsea star had a famously brief stint on the dance show in 2019 before pulling out due to injury and returning the following year.

Richard said he has only ever heard good things about the reality star.

Hitting out at celebs with big egos, he said: ‘If you’re working in television and you’re a bully, what kind of 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.’

No romances have been confirmed so far in the 2021 series of Strictly, however, that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been speculation.

AJ Odudu and her professional partner Kai Widdrington got swept up in romance rumours pretty early on, but have yet to confirm there’s any truth behind them.

The presenter was put on the spot by her young nephew during rehearsals as he asked why they hadn’t kissed yet, with Claudia Winkleman only adding fuel to the fire when the show was live, leaving the pair giggling.

Kai was also heard telling AJ ‘I love you’ following a performance, while microphones picked up AJ affectionately calling him ‘baby’ last weekend.

Romance rumours also targeted Tilly Ramsay and her partner Nikita Kuzmin, as well as Adam Peaty and Katya Jones, which all have fiercely denied.

Elsewhere on Private Parts, Richard admitted the success of Pointless has surprised him, and he thinks it ‘shouldn’t have worked’ as a format.

The quiz show nears 2,000 episodes in the UK, but its creator said it hasn’t been picked up abroad because it is too clunky and baffling.

Strictly Come Dancing has been contacted for comment.
