The last ever episode of QI with host Stephen Fry will air on Wednesday night on ABC.
In October last year Fry said “after passing the alphabetical halfway mark I thought it time to move on, but I will never cease to be grateful to John Lloyd for devising QI and for everyone else for making it such fun”.
“For 13 years I had one of the best jobs on television. Behind the camera squadrons of quite extraordinarily brilliant researchers, programme makers and uniquely curious (in both senses of the word) people making that job so much easier,” he said.
“In front of the camera generations of lively minds and above all of course the wonder of nature that is Alan Davies.”
He will be replaced by Sandi Toksvig.
Alan Davies is joined by comedy actor Chris Addison, broadcaster Sara Cox and Bake Off co-presenter Sue Perkins. Stephen Fry awards points for the answers he considers most interesting.
9:40pm Wednesday on ABC.
