The Chase viewers were given a whopping surprise on today’s instalment, when a new Chaser was unveiled.

Host Bradley Walsh revealed there was a newcomer in the line-up, alongside gameshow staples The Vixen and The Beast – introducing us all to Darragh Ennis.

If he looks a little familiar to you, it’s because he actually took part on the show two years ago as a contestant.

‘The Dublin dynamo,’ Bradley cheered, branding him ‘D-Ennis the menace’.

Darragh started his Chaser career off in style, getting a little bit of fighting talk in with first contestant, Clint.

‘Welcome, Clint, it’s very nice to see you,’ he said.

‘I’ll always remember you as the first contestant I ever faced, and the first one I ever caught, as well.’

Chatting about his previous appearance on the show, the newbie joked: ‘It’s much nicer up here, the seats are more comfy.

‘I’m the only one who knows what it’s like to be down there and how intimidating it really is.’

Darragh had a tough final round but narrowly beat the contestants in the last few seconds to make his debut a success.






Fans watching on from home couldn’t cope with the new addition to the panel, and promptly flocked to Twitter to discuss the scenes.

‘I love the new chaser. I want him to be my teacher when I was at school #TheChase,’ a viewer commented.

‘This new chaser seems nice! He must be so nervous to go on here and be a chaser,’ another agreed.

‘Specially from being a contestant. Good on him and well done for getting this job. #thechase.’

A Twitter user penned: ‘This new chaser is very likeable, that likeable I like him a lot. #TheChase.’

One went so far as to brand him their ‘favourite chaser’, just moments after his debut.

‘The new chaser @bones_giles said his favourite band is Oasis and now he’s officially my new favourite chaser #TheChase,’ they added.

The Chase continues on weekdays, at 5pm, on ITV.
