The Chase viewers were left astonished this evening (November 10) as the show teased the imminent arrival of a brand new Chaser.
During the latest instalment of the hit ITV quiz show, host Bradley Walsh surprised fans when he referred to a mysterious new Chaser.
When Bradley ran the first contestant Randall through the line-up of Chasers, a mystifying black silhouette appeared on screen.
Watch the video above to see the moment Bradley teased the mysterious new Chaser.
“Or will it be The Beast, he’s big in Wales – sorry, that should say he’s as big as a whale,” Bradley quipped as he reeled off the possible Chasers the contestants could be facing.
Bradley continued: “Or could it be our enigmatic new Chaser. Oooooh. What’s his or her name? Who could it be?”
The Chase viewers were quick to jump on social media in utter disbelief after the tease of a brand new Chaser.
Fans who have been paying attention will know that this enigmatic new Chaser is in fact a former contestant.
ITV revealed earlier this year that Oxford University researcher Darragh Ennis, who appeared on the show back in 2017, will be joining the line-up of master quizzers.
Ennis is the latest Chaser to join the show in five years after Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan was announced as the fifth mastermind back in 2015.
Also announcing the news on Twitter, Ennis wrote: “I’m really excited to be the 6th chaser on #TheChase,” he wrote. “I’ve been working hard on this for a while now and can’t wait for my episodes to air. Well the ones I win anyway.”
- The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV
