“He comes into our studio because they don't have an audience for their show, so he likes to get a little fix.”
He went on to reveal how Bradley steals his chair but says his antics are all in jest, and the two programmes actually have a “love-love relationship”.
“Healthy quiz shows are a really good thing and it seems like we can both be successful. Like Blur and Oasis,” Richard stated.
Despite his own extensive knowledge, he admitted that he is in no hurry to go up against the chasers.

Pointless' Richard Osman said he is no hurry to take on Paul Sinha
“I don't really watch The Chase as it's on at the same time. I'm not entirely sure what the format is,” he said.
Richard, who’s new show House Of Games launched last month, added: “They're very good, I know Paul Sinha very well. He's a brilliant quizzer, he'd destroy me.
“If I had a good day I could beat him, but if he had a good day he'd beat me every single time. He's brilliant. I'm not going to hurry and go on that show.”
Pointless airs weekdays at 5.15pm on BBC One.
