Update: Since this story was originally published, Pointless co-host Richard Osman has revealed he was merely joking about West appearing on the show. He has also deleted his tweets referencing the faux appearance.

Kanye West will appear in an upcoming celebrity episode of BBC quiz show Pointless, co-host Richard Osman said on Monday.

"I'm not supposed to say this til Saturday, but it's too much fun to keep to myself," Osman tweeted today, noting the rapper-designer has officially been "booked."

Pointless is a British game show in which pairs of contestants attempt to provide obscure but correct answers to a series of questions, while avoiding answers given during a previously conducted survey, a concept somewhat opposite of Family Feud.

According to Osman, West saw the show on a trip to London and "got hooked," adding Ye will be hosting a forthcoming pilot for a U.S. edition of Pointless.

News of West's appearance comes as there has been some recent speculation about the future of Pointless on BBC, as its contract ends this year. Perhaps a Kanye West is coming at just the right time.
