The Chasers have become iconic members of The Chase cast, showing off their quizzing prowess to defeat thousands of contestants over the years. For over a decade, Bradley Walsh, 60, has been on hand to help the players and act as host of the ITV quiz show. Unfortunately, as the network plans to launch a new spin-off of the popular series, the presenter will be absent from proceedings as the quizmasters take charge.
ITV has announced The Chase Extra will air on its streaming service exclusively and each episode will be a lot shorter than those broadcasting as part of the main show.
It will begin on Monday, March 8 at 6pm on the ITVHub and the six Chasers will each feature in their own instalment over subsequent weeks to ask those watching at home a series of 10 questions.
In amongst all the quizzing, the brainiacs of Britain will offer viewers an insight into their world, revealing tips and telling jokes.
This means Bradley won’t be needed as the Chasers take centre stage to host their very own episodes.
The new and third spin-off of the original series has been commissioned as the show brought in a record audience last year.
On November 28, 2020, the programme saw its largest ever viewership with 5.1 million fans tuning into the episode.
