The Chase contestant makes history with record-breaking solo win
The Chase was a dawdle for this contestant
The Chase's audience were left astounded on Tuesday as a 20-year-old contestant made history with an incredible £75,000 solo win. According to Bradley Walsh, the show's host for over a decade, contestant Eden achieved the biggest win ever on a daytime TV show by a solo player.

Eden looked visibly astounded as his victory settles, unseating Chaser Darragh Ennis and his six-month winning streak.
He was the last of his team standing after making it to the final, making £3,000 in his cash builder and then choosing to go for the higher cash offer of £75,000.
Asked what he would do with the money if he won, Eden said: "I suppose a car would be nice.. But nothing snazzy. Just anything with four wheels."
After answering eighteen questions correctly, Eden bagged himself a hefty £75,000. In the process, Eden beat out Judith who won £70,000 back in 2019.
Bradley told Eden: "I can’t believe it! This is incredible, he’s 20 years old and just won £75,000.
"It’s the single highest win in daytime history."
"You did very well, it was all about the pushbacks in the end," said Chaser Darragh.
In other TV News, a guest speaker live on air was embarrassed by their children. Unlike past incidents, this particular situation included a deformed carrot that looked remarkably like a male appendage.
Carmel Sepuloni, a New Zealand cabinet minister, was live interview with Radio Samoa when her son swanned in holding a deformed carrot he found amongst the shopping.
That moment when you’re doing a LIVE interview via Zoom & your son walks into the room shouting & holding a deformed carrot shaped like a male body part. 🙄🤦🏽♀️ Yes, we were almost wrestling over a carrot on camera, and yes, I’m laughing about it now but wasn’t at the time! 🥴 pic.twitter.com/oUbcpt8tSu

“That moment when you’re doing a LIVE interview via Zoom & your son walks into the room shouting & holding a deformed carrot shaped like a male body part,” Sepuloni tweeted with a video of the incident. “Yes, we were almost wrestling over a carrot on camera, and yes, I’m laughing about it now but wasn’t at the time!”
"A big up’s to all our parents working from home and parenting at the same time — I see you!" she continued in her Tweet.
