The Chase fans have worked out who the new Chaser is – and the quizzing genius was actually a previous contestant on the show.
Host Bradley Walsh was seen teasing the new addition to the Chasers on the show’s Instagram on Tuesday, and the man hoping to beat the contestants is none other than Darragh Ennis.
The Instagram post, which showed his silhouette, read: ‘Everyone has been asking about it, and today you got a glimpse of what is to come with a look at the new Chaser’s silhouette.
‘You’re going to want to keep watching future episodes to find out more #TheChase’.
Bradley can also be heard saying: ‘Are we taking on a mystery brain box from somewhere on the planet?’
Darragh will be joining the current line-up of Chasers which consists of Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace and Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha.
Viewers will remember Darragh impressing on the show in 2017, when he racked up £9,000 on the cash builder, but his teammates decided to take lower offers which meant his total was decreased.
Darragh had also tweeted that he was to be the sixth Chaser in April, writing: ‘I’m really excited to be the 6th chaser on #TheChase .
‘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.’
Paul Sinha also shared the tweet, adding: ‘The night before they producers told us, Anne and Mark and I sat at dinner and pondered “Could it be a former contestant”.
‘I said, “If it is, the best player I faced was an Irish guy who looked a bit like Micky Flanagan” Welcome to the club mate.’
