Former Pointless co-host Richard Osman has married Doctor Who actress Ingrid Oliver after the couple met on the set of his BBC gameshow.

Osman, 52, and Oliver, 45, began dating after they met on the set of House of Games in 2020.

Osman, who is also a best-selling author, shared the news of his wedding from his Twitter account by posting an image of himself and his wife with the caption: "The most magical day on Saturday with my beautiful wife @ingrid_oliver. Surrounded by wonderful friends and family, a day full of love and laughter. We're so, so happy".

In the photos, Oliver is seen wearing a white mermaid-style wedding dress with Juliet sleeves, while Osman is wearing a deep blue for the occasion.

A number of famous faces commented on the tweet, including DJ and broadcaster Lauren Laverne, actress Dawn French, TV presenter Rylan Clark and journalist Victoria Derbyshire.

The couple first met on the set of Osman's BBC Two gameshow where a group of celebrities compete against each other in a series of quick-paced guessing games.

In November, Oliver tweeted a picture from her appearance on House Of Games Champion Of Champions, where previous winners return to become the ultimate champion.

She wrote: "Last time I was on the show, I won a fiance."

Oliver played Petronella Osgood in Doctor Who between 2013 and 2015, including the 50th anniversary special Day Of The Doctor.

She is one half of the comedy duo Watson and Oliver and also had roles in Peep Show and Silent Witness.

Osman first mentioned that they were an item on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs last year. He said: "I've met the woman who I'm going to be with for the rest of my life".

He continued: "That thing of competition and ambition, you soon realise that rocket fuel disappears and it's about happiness and my kids bring me happiness and Ingrid brings me happiness."

Osman announced in April this year that he was stepping back from Pointless after nearly 13 years on the BBC show, having co-hosted alongside Alexander Armstrong, since it began in 2009.

He said he was leaving to focus on his writing, with his debut novel, The Thursday Murder Club, published in September 2020.

It became a bestseller, with its global film rights later snapped up by Steven Spielberg's production company Amblin Entertainment.
