The co-hosts of the BBC’s Pointless aren’t together as a gay couple despite fans of the shows insisting that they act like they’re in a relationship together.
It seems fans of Pointless cannot get enough of the bants between Richard Osman and Alexander Armstrong. Fans absolutely love the relationship so much they’re reading it like the duo are a gay couple.
However, speaking Radio Times, Richard Osman said, “We’re not lovers. Try as I might, it has just never happened.”
So it looks as though the pair are just living a bromance.
Richard has, in the past, written about the joking between the presenters and that it added to the “Brokeback Mountain-style sexual frisson of the show”.
Both presenters identify as straight and recently, Richard was said to be dating radio DJ and deputy editor of InStyle magazine, Emily Dean. He split with the mother of his two children a number of years ago.
Alexander is married to Hannah Bronwen Snow, an events organiser; and together they have four sons.
Pointless is on daily on BBC 1 at 5.15PM.
