Anne Hegerty: 'Hideously wrong' The Chase star swipes at Richard Osman's 'man-child' query

The Chase star Anne Hegerty, 61, who is otherwise known as The Governess, has launched a swipe at Pointless host Richard Osman as she told the House Of Cards star something has “hideously” gone wrong with his “life”. The BBC favourite asked his Twitter followers a vital question after revealing one of his conversations with his daughter.

It comes after Richard reached out to his 939,000 Twitter followers today to ask for some advice following a conversation with his daughter Ruby.

The TV star penned: “A question that has just come up in conversation with my daughter.

“What is the plural of ‘man-child’?”

Once his query grasped Anne’s attention, the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here sensation quickly swiped: “If you are ever dealing with them in the plural, something has gone hideously wrong with your life.”

She explained: “My mother couldn’t understand anything about me… why I wasn’t more sociable and popular and good with people.

“She was very much a people person, she was a social worker.”

Anne went on to share: “I got bullied a fair bit, because I was just a very obvious target.”

The ITV sensation mentioned that although she had a few friends at school, she also didn’t understand the “concept” of friendship when she was younger.
