The Chase to get a “proper shake up” in 2020 with new Chasers

The Chase will see a “proper shake up” in 2020, it’s been revealed.


Host Bradley Walsh has said the long-running tea time quiz will get a major makeover next year.

The hit game show typically broadcasts weekdays at 5PM on ITV although is currently off air on a break.

It was previously let slip that at least one brand new Chaser would be joining the ranks when the series returns.

“It’s accessible, people love it, it’s ten years old now,” Bradley told Good Morning Britain about the show, “What can you say? We’ve got a brand new chaser coming in for another new series now. It’s all good.”

A spokesperson for ITV confirmed: “A new Chaser will be revealed in due course.”

However that may not be all.


Bradley also teased to the 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.

“It could be more than one, who knows. But it’s a proper shake-up.”

The current Chasers are Anne Hegerty (aka The Governess), Shaun Wallace (The Barrister), Mark Labbett (The Beast), , Paul Sinha (The Sinnerman) and Jenny Ryan (The Vixen).

Now in its tenth year and and having reached over 1000 episodes, The Chase has seen global success, with versions now being made in 11 countries.


You can catch The Chase online for free (UK viewers) and catch up with past episodes on ITV Hub.

Two Christmas specials are due to air in December on ITV.
