The Chase gets new spin off program
The popular TV show, The Chase, is getting a prime time spin off program called “Beat the Chasers”
Based on the same concept as the hugely popular Chase, individual contestants will play cash builder rounds up to £5000 then go head to head with the Chasers rather than working as a team. They will get choices like taking less money to face less chasers and vice versa.
Anne Hegerty, Mark Labbett, Jenny Ryan, Paul Sinha and Shaun Wallace will all be returning in the new show.
There is a catch though. If a contestant gets the first question wrong that are automatically eliminated from the show. Bradley Walsh will be returning as the host.
