A bus company has replied to a TV presenter and author’s request for a bus to be named after him.

It comes after a re-run of an old episode of Pointless showed Richard Osman, who is from Cuckfield, saying he would like a Brighton and Hove bus named after him.

A spokesman from Brighton and Hove Buses replied to the request on Twitter, and invited Osman to pay them a visit.

“Dear Richard Osman, we just caught this on BBCOne re-run,” they said.

“Sorry we missed you before.

“You’re officially invited to come and see us in Brighton, and we might be tempted to name a bus after you.

“Love from Brighton & Hove Buses x.”
