I’m seeing double, five chasers

ITV is launching a new show called Beat the Chasers, a brand new prime time spin on the beloved quiz show The Chase, challenging contestants to take on two, three, four or all five chasers at once.

The show will be hosted by Bradley Walsh and will include chasers Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan and Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace.

The recently announced new chaser from Ireland, Darragh Ennis, will not be part of this series.

In the new show, Bradley will call down contestants from the audience who will face five multiple choice questions with the chance to bank up to £5,000. However, they walk away with nothing if they get the first question wrong.

Contestants are then given the option of playing between two and all five chasers for increasing amounts of money, but with a decreasing time advantage against them.

As the money goes up, so does the number of chasers a contestant will face.

It’s not quite the same layout in terms of the questions when facing the chasers either, with questions flipping between contestants and the chasers. However, both sides have a clock and if you get a question wrong, the clock starts counting down until the correct answer is given.

The first to run out of time loses the game.

Beat The Chasers starts next Monday (27 April) at 9pm on ITV.
