The Chase's Mark Labbett takes VERY cheeky swipe at Richard Osman after announcing exit from show

MARK Labbett has taken a cheeky dig at fellow TV star Richard Osman.

Pointless presenter Richard has not long confirmed he will be leaving the competition show after an impressive 13-year run.

This is due to him wanting to focus more on his writing, after finding success with his books The Man Who Died Twice and The Thursday Murder Club.

Richard took to Twitter to announce his departure, writing an emotional post.

He said: "SOME NEWS! After 13 wonderful years I'm leaving daytime Pointless, to concentrate on writing.

"Will still be doing the celebrity shows and 'HouseOfGames'."

He added: "It has been the GREATEST pleasure and I can't wait to start watching as a viewer. Thank you to everyone!"
