The public have been sent a stern warning about their increasingly cocky behaviour on the nation’s tea time quiz shows.
Head of Light Entertainment, Peter Thape (58) has asked the public to tone down their gobbiness when appearing on Pointless, Tipping Point, and The Chase. Thape has noticed contestants increasingly chatting away in recent times, and fondly remembers an era when the show’s presenters skilfully mocked the intimidated contestants for the viewer’s amusement.
‘Everyone thinks they’re a star nowadays. That Andy Warhol’s got a lot to answer for,’ said Thape.
‘You’re not going to become famous just because Alexander Armstrong’s asked you to talk them through the board,’ said Thape.
