Fans of The Chase have been left worried host Bradley Walsh could be leaving the show, after he revealed that he could retire from showbiz in the near future.

While the 61-year-old has hosted main show The Chase for the 12 years it has been on air, he didn’t host the recent spin-off series The Chase Extra.

And he fuelled speculation further when he recently told The Sun: ‘You know what, in a couple of years time I won’t have to do any of it, I’ll be retired and that’ll be it.’

Could this mean he’ll be bidding farewell to the show soon?

As yet, there has been no official announcement that Bradley will be leaving the main show, with the presenter and ITV itself not addressing the rumours.

Chaser Anne Hegerty, also known as The Governess, has however spoken out to claim that Bradley isn’t going anywhere.

She addressed the rumours as well as claims ITV was ‘under fire for having no women hosts fronting game shows or quizzes’ as she tweeted: ‘Firstly, Brad isn’t leaving. Secondly, I’m not leaving.

‘Thirdly, I’m a woman and I DO present an ITV gameshow (Britain’s Brightest Celebrity Family).’

How long has Bradley Walsh presented The Chase?

Bradley has fronted The Chase since it began in 2009.

He explained to The Sun that while it is on screens such a lot, that doesn’t mean he is working on it all year round, saying: ‘We make 210 Chases, 16 Celebrity Chases, 16 Beat The Chasers. It’s only actually 86 days recording.

‘So out of 365 days, you’d imagine I have loads of time off. But once you’ve got your bedrock of shows set in, that allows you then to go off and do other things.’
