Comedian Alan Davies has unveiled the real reason behind Stephen Fry quitting comedy quiz show “QI” after 13 years. According to Davies, the show had done some budget cuts that led to working conditions where Stephen Fry felt “overworked”. he even had to shoot 3 episodes in 24 hours. Davies said, “Sometimes he’d go upstairs and have a vodka and tonic and a lie down then come back and say: ‘I don’t want to do this’.”

After Stephen Fry stepped down in October 2015,  female comedian Sandi Toksvig replaced him as the host. Alan Davies commented, “It’s absolutely right he’s stepped down. He didn’t want to do it any more. It’s a new era. We have a really good replacement. There’s a good atmosphere around the show. Sandi Toksvig is really good at it. I had a great time making the show. I was funny. I actually have a bit more room.” No official comment has been made by BBC or Stephen Fry regarding this.
