No points: Armstrong impressed by the record-breaking round

Countdown star Susie Dent has been tipped to replace Richard Osman in Pointless.

Fans of the popular BBC quiz show were left devastated this afternoon after it was reported the 51-year-old would be stepping down from the show after 13 years.

Richard has hosted the show – with the format he creates – with his friend Alexander Armstrong since 2009, but wants to focus on his writing career.

And Dictionary Corner legend, our favorite Susie currently takes Richard’s spot at 5/2, followed by Alex Horne at 7/2 and Victoria Coren Mitchell at 9/2.

“It looks like the Pointless heads will be aiming for a rival gameshow in their quest to find a replacement for Richard Osman, with Susie Dent and Alex Horne seemingly entering a two-horse race for the job,” said Alex. Apati, of Ladbrokes, said.

“Whoever replaces Osman will certainly have big shoes to fill, and the odds suggest that role could go to the only man in showbiz higher than current co-host Stephen Merchant. “

Sun announced that Richard – who created the show’s format – would be replaced by alternate co-hosts.

Meanwhile, it is believed he will continue to host Pointless Celebrities, though it is likely he will also give up on that.

A BBC source told the publication: “Richard has become a staple of the daytime schedule but sadly all good things must come to an end.

“Richard loved every second of being on the show with Xander but he really wanted to dedicate himself to his writing career, a resounding success.”

They said his departure was “completely amicable” but that he did not have enough hours in the day to continue performing on the show.

The insider added: “His literary career is going from strength to strength so he has to be a little more selective with what he does on television.”
