The Chase has thrown up plenty of surprises over the years, and the most recent moment saw Bradley Walsh absolutely stunned by the age of a contestant.
The presenter was left speechless after Lyndon from Ebbw Vale in Wales revealed his age, describing himself as a keen marathon runner.
After Lyndon told of his athletic exploits, Bradley was shocked to find that the contestant was 70 years old.
‘You’re not!’ Bradley said, his jaw open in shock.
‘I am, and I’ve run 55 marathons,’ a proud Lyndon went on to say.
‘Lyndon, you look great for 70 mate, you look really well,’ the presenter added.
The contestant also revealed that he plays in a rock band and would have used his winnings to pay for a ‘Hofner Violin bass like Paul McCartney uses’.
The guitar would have cost him around £25,000. Sadly though, despite winning £7,000 in his cash builder, he was caught by chaser Darragh Ennis and went home empty handed.
It comes after a brave contestant won an incredible £40,000 showdown with Mark Labbett last month.
Contestant Steph only claimed £1,000 in her cash builder round but managed to hustle The Beast after he offered £40,000 in the head to head.
People on the show also accidentally resembled the Spice Girls in one hilarious moment.
The Chase recently welcomed Darragh as the new chaser, joining Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace and Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha.
The Chase airs daily at 5pm on ITV.
