The Chase launches online special

‘The Chase’ has launched an interactive new series.

For the next two weeks, the ITV quiz show are airing special 15-minute episodes across Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, where fans are asked 10 questions by one of the expert quizzers.

This week, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan has taken on Chaser duty for the 6pm online specials, while next week, fans can test their skills against Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace.

Meanwhile, Anne Hegerty aka ‘The Governess’, has confirmed it is likely spin-off show ‘Beat the Chasers’ – which featured contestants going head-to-head with teams of Chasers in an attempt to beat the clock – will be renewed for another series because it was such a big hit with viewers.

She told Radio Times magazine: "We’re definitely looking to do more as soon as we can.

"We knew when we were filming it that this was a really good show, we were saying to each other, ‘This is really exciting, we are having such close finishes’.

"We thought it would go down well but the ratings were just tremendous. I’m very glad that we got that under our belts before lockdown began – we filmed in late January and early February so it’s brilliant we got it in."

Production on the main series stopped in February and last month, host Bradley Walsh admitted they were "about 100 shows behind schedule" due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 59-year-old presenter also admitted it was "lucky" evening special ‘Beat the Chasers’ had been filmed before lockdown.

He said: "We were so lucky because we filmed it back in January. Obviously if it had been a couple of weeks later it wouldn’t have been made.

"We stopped filming on The Chase in February, so I would say at the moment we’re about 100 shows behind schedule, which we’ll need to make up."

And Bradley has no idea when they will all return to work on the show.

He said: "I’ve got absolutely no idea what is going to happen. We can’t say we’ll be back to work in a month, eight weeks. No one knows. All we can do is sit and pray."
