House Of Games Guests This Week

House Of Games Guests This Week

A new group of celebrities take on Richard Osman's dotty questions in this week's edition of House of Games.

This week it's the turn of Ruby Bhogal, Ed Byrne, Ingrid Oliver and Sir Matthew Pinsent.

As we have previously noted, comedians have a very good track record in this competition with Angela Barnes holding the all-time record of being the first contestant to win all five episodes on the way to becoming the overall champion.

Comedians have, however, also been at the centre of controversy. Earlier in this current series, UK-based Texas-born comedian Kemah Bob prompted a flurry of questions on social media from viewers who wondered if she was using her real voice or putting on a funny comedy voice. Some thought she sounded like a cartoon character, others said they would not be watching the show while Kemah was on. Eventually though she won round most of the doubters with her strong performance, stylish clothes and witty answers.

I doubt if stalwart stand-up Ed Byrne (far right) will create quite such a kerfuffle, but he's a smart, well-travelled performer who should do well. Ingrid Oliver (next to Ed Byrne) will be best known to comedy fans as half of the double act Watson and Oliver. She has also acted in shows ranging from Silent Witness to Plebs to Dr Who (Petronella Osgood). Just to jog your memory one of Watson and Oliver's most famous sketches is below.

A daily winner is declared following a quick-fire round at the end of each show, and the scores are tallied across the week, resulting in an overall champion being crowned on Friday.

Will the winning stars opt for the much-coveted House of Games decanter, or will they be tempted by the House of Games kitchen composter?

Richard Osman's House of Games, Monday, September 20 - Friday, September 24, BBC Two, 6pm.
