Beat The Chasers series 2 has delighted viewers in the first week of 2021.
Not only have the contestants given as good as they get, but there’s been apparent tension between The Chasers themselves.
Now Paul, 50, has broken his silence (thankfully he didn’t break anything else).
What happened between Jenny and Paul on Beat The Chasers?
It all kicked off when contestant Jane was asked a Star Wars question.
After she had elected to take on three Chasers for £10,000 – Anne Hegerty, Jenny and Paul – she made a bad start.
However, when it came to the Star Wars question, Paul buzzed in and got the answer wrong.
Jenny immediately appeared to lash out at him, hitting him on his arm.
The two gave each other daggers for the rest of the round.
Incredibly, Jane won the £10k with only one second to spare after The Governess also answered incorrectly.
Just returned from shoulder surgery. What did I miss?

Jenny, 38, also took to social media to diffuse the situation.
She said on her Instagram feed: “I didn’t *really* hurt him! Honest!
Did Jenny seriously just punch Paul in the arm for getting something wrong?
“Only last night my mate texted to say he appreciated me giving my teammates a congratulatory pat on the arm for a good answer…
“I’d forgotten the reverse was true…”
