Pointless fans all say the same thing after Lauren Laverne becomes latest guest co-host | The Sun

POINTLESS fans have been treated to a selection of co-hosts of late – and fans are all saying the same thing about Lauren Laverne.

The radio DJ and musician, 44, was in the hot seat alongside Pointless anchor Alexander Armstrong, 52, as the latest celebrity face to replace Richard Osman.

Earlier this year, Richard made the announcement that he would be leaving the show after 13 years.

Lauren follows on from former Corrie star Sally Lindsay, who had divided fans – with some calling out her supposed lack of chemistry with Alexander.

Yet BBC viewers are hugely impressed with former model Lauren, with some dubbing her their "favourite."

One took to Twitter to write: "I think Lauren Laverne is my favourite take over host on #pointless can we have her full time please."

Another wrote: "Absolutely loving Lauren. She's a natural asking those questions."

A third then put: "Lauren Laverne seems like a natural co-host on #pointless."

Another added: "Lauren Laverne is excellent as the Osman on #Pointless this week. And in other news, you’ve got to love winners who plan to spend their money on bat detectors and a trip to CERN."

Her first category on the show was British Prime Ministers.

Her rounds have also put the spotlight on the winter Olympics, as well as music collaborations.

Lauren has had a varied career that includes modelling, writing, singing, comedy and being on the radio.

She is also a writer who published her first novel, Candypop – Candy and the Broken Biscuits, back in 2010.

She had a newspaper column from 2012 to 2014, where she wrote about style and culture.

But in April 2015, she decided to launch her own venture – The Pool, a website aimed at women.

She co-founded the site with her magazine editor pal Sam Baker, and the site also boasts regular podcasts and videos with Caitlin Moran.
