Richard Osman’s House of Games Night coming to BBC One

The new primetime series will feature Jennifer Saunders, Jermaine Jenas, Roisin Conaty and Jason Manford.


Richard Osman’s House of Games Night will air later this year and follows a strong run of the popular BBC Two series, Richard Osman’s House of Games, which airs at 6pm.


As with the BBC Two series, each week a group of four famous faces go toe to toe in testing their general knowledge skills in a variety of entertaining games.


Jennifer Saunders, Jermaine Jenas, Roisin Conaty and Jason Manford will play in the BBC One primetime run, hoping to take home the coveted House of Games trophy.


The series includes all the favourite, funny games from the BBC Two series, with the addition of some new items for the primetime shows, including the appearance of a house band and some special guests.


As ever, all of the games are rooted in general knowledge and can be played along at home by viewers.
