Richard Osman reveals his battle with food addiction

0


Osman urged anyone who struggles with overeating and thinks the problem is “ludicrous” to “divorce” from this idea and confront it “head on”.

He added: “There hasn’t been a day in my life since I was nine years old that I haven’t thought about food issues and how it affects me, and it will be with me. for the rest of my life. I know that.

“I either control it or I don’t control it at some point and these days I control it more often than I don’t.”

Eye disease “an asset” in television career

Osman, who has presented the BBC’s hit Quiz Pointless alongside Alexander Armstrong since 2009, also revealed how his nystagmus, a condition that causes uncontrolled eye movements, has at times been of an asset in his television career. .

“It’s something where the world is basically blurry all the time, so it’s like being in a fog,” he said.

“Television, of course ridiculously, is visual media, and if I’m ever sitting in a montage, I can’t see if a boom has entered the picture. I can not see [if] something looks good, i just listened. I’m just listening to what’s going on

“And if I present, I can’t read an autocue. Of course, it’s too far, which just means I never read autocues, which means I make things up. Which hopefully means that when you do long-running shows, they feel fresh because you’re not saying the same thing all the time.
