Wow this is massive.
ITV have recruited a new quizzer for their game show The chase and he’s a popular former contestant named Darragh Ennis.
The Mirror has reported that the Irish man will be announced as the show’s sixth Chaser where he will battle against teams to stop them winning money.
Darragh will be the first new chaser since Jenny Ryan joined the show in 2015.
An insider has said:
‘Darragh has got what it takes to be a Chaser, he has been put to the test and passed with flying colours.
‘They don’t bring in new members on The Chase regularly so this is a big deal for the show and Darragh. Viewers will be very interested to see how he gets on.
The continued to say:
‘The show is so popular with spin off shows now as well so there is a need to increase the team. No one is leaving, Darragh is very much an addition to the team.’
Darragh, first appeared on the sow in 2017 and is a post-doctoral researcher at Oxford University.
During his cash builder round he answered nine questions correctly bringing £9,000 back to the team but his teammates took the lower offers which decreased the fund to £2700.
It was in November last year when host Bradley Walsh hinted the show could be getting a new Chaser in an interview with Radio Times.
‘We’re making more and more shows all the time, so we need to recruit more people all the time.
‘So consequently, we have put our feelers out to find other people that will be suitable, and all will be revealed next year.
When he was asked if he meant more than one new Chaser could be joining the team, Bradley said:
‘It could be more than one, who knows. But it’s a proper shake-up.’
This is massive news and we cant wait for a new chaser.
