    While Pointless presenter Richard Osman, 49, was watching today’s viewing of Bargain Hunt, he decided to comment on the “absolute scenes” he witnessed when a vintage bike sold for a steep price. The TV producer admitted he was announcing his “resignation” from television, after slipping up.

    On the daytime show, potential buyers were looking at a vintage bike and it quickly sparked Richard’s shock.

    The BBC favourite wrote to his 950,000 Twitter followers: “No WAY is he going to sell that vintage bike for more than £250.

    “Absolutely no way #BargainHunt.”

    However, after the auctioneer managed to sell his item, in an additional tweet, Richard penned: “£320. Absolute scenes #BargainHunt.”

    The Pointless star, who hosts the game show alongside Alexander Armstrong, went on to admit: “I announce my resignation from television. #BargainHuntMiscalculation.”

    It wasn’t long before many fans waded in to comment on the moment and how it was “nonsense”.

    “It’s nonsense. I’m fuming,” one replied.

    Another went on to tweet: “I’m glad that I’m not the only person who’s developed a weird interest in Bargain Hunt during the pandemic.”

    “And she’s not awake yet, so I can get away with saying this.”

    Fans of the host were quick to share their thoughts on his sweet message, as one said: “Wow, what a great dad, start off with embarrassment and work through to schmalz.

    “Such a lucky daughter to have a father who loves her.”

    Another commented: “What! More accomplished than presenter, producer, author, genius and all round charming Richard Osman?

    “I doubt it! Happy birthday to her!”

    Richard, who is also a father to a son, Sonny, previously called his children his “best friends”.

    Speaking to Express.co.uk in 2016, the presenter confessed: “My best friend is… I have to say my two children, who are 17 and 15 – they’re my best friends.

    “I see them a lot but it’s soon to be a lot less as my daughter is off to Shanghai University.”
