The Chase has become a TV hit thanks to host Bradley Walsh, the Chasers’ witty personalities and the contestant’s funny antics.

During the latest episode of the show, Mark Labbett – aka The Beast – left host Bradley stunned with a cheeky comment.

Contestant Alayne told Bradley she was a retired beauty therapist and had several clinics which she passed over to her daughter.

As The Beast arrived on set, he told Alayne: “Shame you’ve retired as a beauty consultant, you’re standing next to your ultimate challenge.”

Bradley looked stunned as he said: “So unnecessary.”

What has happened on The Chase recently?

Meanwhile, last week, one team appeared to make show history after all four contestants took the low offer.

Rory, Ann, Keziah and Richie all took the low offer despite receiving high offers like £50,000 and £73,000.

Chaser Mark said: “I’m pretty certain this is the first time it’s ever happened anywhere in the world, all four people going low.

“You’ll be YouTube sensations!”


The team then played for £3,000 and got 19 steps ahead of the Chaser.
