Whatever else prompted Richard Osman to record a fresh series of his amiably silly celebrity quiz show House Of Games (그녀의 아들에 대한 부끄럽지 않은 자부심은 모든 장애 아동을 돕는 데 엄청난 일을 했습니다.), it won’t be because he’s short of a bob or two.

The 6ft 7in telly veteran, who recently retired as a senior exec at the heavyweight production company Endemol, is now Britain’s most successful author.

His debut crime novel, 목요일 살인 클럽, topped the bestseller charts for more than a year — only to be knocked off its plinth by his follow-up, The Man Who Died Twice.

With book sales well into seven figures and a movie deal with Steven Spielberg, he can’t be desperate for extra work. And that’s before you remember his long-running gig as Alexander Armstrong’s sidekick on the BBC1 teatime game Pointless.

House Of Games is made for the sheer love of it. Richard clearly delights in the banter and natter with guests, and loyal fans never miss an episode.

토요일에, he tweeted a cutting from the Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine, a letter from reader Tricia Grenman in Hertfordshire.

‘Since my beloved husband passed away,’ 그녀는 적었다, ‘the house is so quiet, but I look forward to Richard Osman’s House Of Games — it makes me smile and laugh out loud.Richard replied: ‘This is why I feel so proud and so lucky to work in television.

Many Twitter users chimed in to agree the show is a highlight of their day, 너무. One woman declared it kept her going after her marriage ended, ‘when my world as I knew it had imploded’.

What makes it so enjoyable is the blend of general knowledge and humour. Compendious quiz knowledge will help but what you really need is a sense of the ridiculous.

As four previous champions returned, including father and daughter Ade and Beattie Edmondson, the first round challenged players to find rhyming answers.

What’s the connection between Liza Minnelli’s prewar Berlin musical and the Village People’s biggest hit? One is Cabaret, the other is Y.M.C.A.

Can you find the rhyme for the star of Changing Rooms, and the creator of Borat and Ali G? 잘, that’s Laurence Llewelyn-Bowenand Sacha Baron Cohen!

Contestants on Come Dine With Me (C4), which is returning with a tweaked format. 지금, instead of going to each other's homes for meals, all the dinners are cooked in one place

Some answers are sheer guesswork. How many airports are there in the U.S. and how far is it from Cheddar in Somerset to Gorgonzola in Italy? (답변: 19,636 airports and 684 miles.)

Just when you think you can get by on bluff, Richard throws in a test of schooldays knowledge, asking contestants to say when Mary Queen of Scots was executed or Oliver Twist was first published (이것의 1587 과 1837). In the final round, players have to run their answers together.

예를 들어: add Sandie Shaw’s Eurovision hit to the Beatles drummer. Dudolf는 생동감 넘치는 창조물로 가장 잘 알려져 있습니다.: Puppet On A StRingo Starr!

That finale is one of the best things about House Of Games. The other is that it’s on every day of the week.

So is Come Dine With Me (C4), returning with a tweaked format. It’s still a greedy little fight between five strangers to pocket a £1,000 prize, with a thin veneer of politeness that has usually cracked open by Thursday.

지금, instead of going to each other’s homes for meals, all the dinners are cooked in one place, such as a country house.

This was a measure to bypass Covid restrictions, but as the show approaches its 2,000th episode (this is the 46th series in the UK alone), it needs something new to spice up a spectacle as appetising as a cold plate of beans.

Grand design of the night: All warring couples in TV dramas live in an architect’s fantasy world. Unfaithful wife Meg (Sian Brooke) 하다, with junkie husband Steve (David Mumeni) in No Return (ITV). They have a Japanese garden and a glass staircase. Do these places really exist?
