Mark Labbett on Beat the Chasers

Beat the Chasers: Mark Labbett apologises to Shaun Wallace for ‘screwing up’ after clash

Mark lashed out at Shaun on Sunday's show

Beat the Chasers star Mark Labbett has apologised to fellow quizzer Shaun Wallace following a clash on Sunday’s show.

Earlier this week, Mark – aka The Beast – lashed out at fellow Chaser Shaun after The Dark Destroyer took several seconds to answer a question.

After contestant Claire beat the Chasers, Shaun said: “Sorry I took too long.”

However, Mark hit back: “You can’t do that Shaun!”

Host Bradley Walsh asked what had happened and Shaun said: “I’d rather take some time and get it right…”

But Mark said: “Absolutely not, it’s not your time to waste. That’s a terrible sin!”

However, it seems The Beast got a taste of his own medicine during Monday evening’s episode.

Contestant Kat was up against all five Chasers in the hope of winning a whopping £50,000.

With 20 seconds remaining on the clock, Kat had a clear advantage.

The Chasers had just 14 seconds left and Mark did the same as Shaun and hesitated on a question.

I’ve got to do something I don’t normally do, which is eat massive humble pie.

Before Bradley had finished reading the question, The Beast buzzed in but answered it wrong.

Putting his head down, he said: “Sorry.”

The Chasers then ran out of time and Kat won the jackpot.
