Who has done the impossible and beaten the Chasers? (Picture: ITV)
When it comes to daytime game shows, nothing quite beats ITV’s The Chase.
The game show, hosted by Bradley Walsh, pits contestants against a professional quizzer, known as the chaser, who attempts to prevent them from winning a cash prize.
While many have found it hard to beat the chaser – including Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett and Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan – some contestants have come away with incredible cash prizes.
But what are some of biggest cash prizes won on The Chase?
What is the most money won by a solo player on The Chase?
The Vixen, AKA Jenny Ryan, was defeated by Judith, a 58-year-old charity volunteer from Cambridgeshire back in February 2019.
She went home with a staggering £70,000, after a tense eight pushback battle with The Vixen.
That cash prize makes Judith the most successful solo contestant on The Chase, but her cash prize of £70,000 is not the largest sum of money won on the show.
What is the most money won by a team on The Chase?
The most amount of money won by a team on The Chase is also the most amount of money ever won on a single show.
Back in 2018, a team of four – consisting of Diane, Luca, Tim and Gayna – bagged themselves a huge £100,000 (£25,000 each) after beating Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty.
That’s not just the biggest win on The Chase, it’s the biggest prize ever won by a contestant on a UK daytime TV show.
That being said, there has technically been a bigger cash prize won on The Chase.
It was on The Celebrity Chase, where the offers are much higher on the celebrity shows, which sees celebrity contestants play to win money for charity.
Countdown presenter Rachel Riley and GB News presenter Kirsty Gallacher earned £160,000 for Soccer Aid after beating Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace in the final chase in 2018.
What are some of the other biggest wins on The Chase?
There have been many contestants that have come away with a sum of money that is not to be sniffed at.
Some of the biggest wins in the history of the show include a £45,000 win, a £60,000 win, a £75,000 win, and a £90,000 win.
You can catch The Chase on ITV1 weekdays at 5pm.
