The presenter said he "went a little nuts" after appearing on the ITV competition, but not as a "direct result" of the show.
The broadcaster and writer was accused of 'ruining' the upcoming series after 'revealing' who would appear in the 2019 outing.
Former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here contestant Iain Lee has said that he suffered 'a touch of PTSD' from his time on the show.
Pointless is supposed to be a light-hearted teatime quiz show but the latest episode took a bit of a concerning turn when Keith Chegwin and Iain Lee made a questionable quip that outraged viewers have dubbed “casual racism”. The duo were taking part on a celebrity special of the BBC quiz show alongside Antony Costa, Michelle Heaton, Lisa Maxwell, Rav Wilding, Nicholas Parsons and Helen Lederer when they gave the questionable answer. In the show, the pair were asked to use a visual clue in order to guess the name of a pop band, with Keith and Iain being shown a photo of two young Asian girls looking at a range of spices.
