The Chase returned to ITV with the final episode of the week and joining Bradley Walsh in the studio was Nicole, Jack, Katie and Donnie. Together, they faced Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace, hoping to each take a portion of the prize fund home. The game didn’t get off to a very good start and when it was the fourth and final player’s turn to go head to head with the Chaser, she took a risk and opted for the high offer. As a result, the jackpot sat at £60,000. In the team’s final round, they suffered as the host asked several difficult questions, but a “disappointing” performance from Shun, with several “silly mistakes” made, saw the contestants walk away with their pockets full of money. 

First up was Donnie and he managed to answer four questions correctly in his cashbuilder, which he later added to the jackpot. 

it was then Katie’s turn and despite an average round of quick-fire questions from Bradley, Shaun managed to boot her out of the game show when she went head to head with him. 

Jack only managed two correct answers and stuck with his measly £2,000, but made it back to join Donnie. 

Lastly, Katie managed to accumulate £3,000 and when she faced The Dark Destroyer at the table, she was offered an insulting -£3,000 to take a step closer to home or a whopping £54,000 to take a step closer to him. 

“Have a chat with the team. Jack, what do you say?” Bradley asked. The contestant replied: “£54,000 is a lot of money, the -£3,000 is an insult, you’re better than that, I think you could be better than the £3,000 as well.” 

Donnie added: “Go for it! Get back here, three of us £9,000, that’s plenty.” 

“Thank you. Let’s face the table then Nicole,” the host said. “What’s it going to be?”

“I’m going to go high,” she revealed. “I have to really!” Nicole then turned to the other players and apologised, but Shaun added: “You’re a good player Nicole, you’ve got nothing to apologise for.” 

After a stellar head to head, Nicole’s £54,000 took the jackpot to a total of £60,000, it was then all to play for in the final round. 

Together, the three teammates managed to answer 14 questions, giving them a step count of 17. 

“I’ve got to say, this is going to be close,” Bradley commented. 

The Chase was on and Shaun got off to a good start, answering several questions correctly. 

But, after one answer – which he got wrong – set him up to fail.

“At what point on Earth, is every direction north?” Bradley asked and the quizmaster replied: “North Pole.” 

“Stop the clock, that is wrong!” The host said and then repeated the question for the team who answered: “South Pole.” 

“It’s correct, push the Chaser back. Three now required to catch the team,” Bradley continued. “13 seconds remaining. It’s going to be close.” 

“The squidgygate scandal involved which royal Princess?” The next question read and Shaun said: “Princess Anne?” 

The clock was stopped and it was another opportunity for the team to push him back if they answered correctly. 

The Chase: Contestants beat Shaun Wallace to win £60,000

Those watching at home saw the three contestants deliberate and then provide “Sarah Ferguson” as an answer which was also wrong, Princess Diana was correct.

“Three to catch, here we go!” Bradley commented. “Your time starts again now. The violin cello is the full name of which musical instrument?” And Shaun interjected with “cello”. 

“What rank in the peerage is a life peer?” Bradley asked next and Shaun offered “Lord” as his answer. 

The host of The Chase then asked the team the same questioned and they answered: “Baron.” 

“It’s correct!” Bradley exclaimed. “We push the Chaser back – three required, money’s in the bag, £60,000, one second remaining. Your time starts again now…” 

But Bradley barely had time to start the next question before the time ran out and each contestant was £20,000 richer. 

“What a show! What a show! Six attempts to pushback, three executed, Chaser needed three, brilliant!” He continued. 

Shaun concluded with: “It was a good game. A couple of silly mistakes by myself, a disappointing day at the office.” 

The Chase airs weekday evenings at 5pm on ITV.
