I’m so enjoying glancing over to the desk to find so many fabulous faces looking back and furnishing me, and our lovely viewers, with facts.”

Mel Giedroyc considers it a privilege to sit behind the “iconic” Pointless desk, while Liza Tarbuck looks forward to amusing her parents and working with Armstrong.

Gabby Logan is eager to join Alexander and learn new things, and Josh Widdicombe jests about his temporary role as Richard Osman and a potential foray into murder mystery writing.

Phil Wang, boasting two Pointless trophies, is excited to dominate from behind the desk. Hugh Dennis has been practicing his co-hosting skills, while Ellie Taylor is looking forward to discovering the behind-the-scenes workings of the show.

Rob Rinder relishes the opportunity to be the “gatekeeper to all the obscure trivia,” and Desiree Burch humorously refers to her participation as a chance at “failing upwards and onwards.

Fans of the show can catch the new series on weekdays at 5:15PM on BBC One, with all episodes available on BBC iPlayer.
