TV presenter Richard Osman took to Twitter yesterday to set the record straight on the COVID protocols that his programme House of Games is following. The quiz show host shared a glimpse of the. The KFC account on Twitter does something rather marvellous with the handful of people it follows and while many of you might already be familiar with it, it’s a gag with no best before date. The great Richard Osman sent it viral all over again after watching Channel 4.

2016 World Cup of Crisps

The World Cup of Crisps is an unofficial national competition that takes place every four years on the social media network Twitter to determine the United Kingdom's favourite brand and flavour of crisps. The competition was created, organised and hosted by TV host Richard Osman,[1][2] and the inaugural competition took place in February and March 2012.


The World Cup of Crisps was originally conceived on social media by Osman in January 2012. The inaugural edition had 32 types of crisp, with eight group winners qualifying for the quarter-finals, and the competition progressing further using a knockout system. Votes were cast on Twitter using the hashtag '#wcocr'. The second edition was expanded to include 48 types of crisp and three group stages before semi-finals and a final, and votes were cast using Twitter's new poll feature.[3][4]

Due to the lack of Twitter polls, no official numbers of votes were revealed in the first edition of the World Cup of Crisps.

During and after the second edition of the event, several voters became disillusioned with the choice of crisps on offer. A debate began to emerge on the definition of crisp, with three of the four semi-finalists, Wotsits, Monster Munch and Quavers, as well as the 2012 winners Frazzles, being criticised for not actually conforming to the definition of crisp. These opinions were shut down by Osman, who urged critics to 'organise [their] own World Cup.'[6]
