Beat the Chasers series four – what’s new including Super Offers?

Bradley Walsh returns to host as quizzers put their skills to the ultimate test to win big-money prizes.

For the first time, ITV’s fiendish quiz will challenge contestants to face SIX Chasers.

And, in another series first, there are hundreds of thousands of pounds on offer in brand new ‘Super Offers’.

The option is only available to those who ace the Cashbuilder round.

‘Super Offers’ are made to those who answer all five questions correctly.

ITV promise: “Beat the Chasers returns for its toughest series ever, with all six Chasers and the highest offers ever made.”

Bradley Walsh says of series four: “When the Chasers started offering hundreds of thousands of pounds it was electric.

“The feeling in the room when there’s huge sums like that on offer is something else.

“Without a doubt this is the biggest series and the biggest challenge but with the chance of the biggest reward!”

The series was also filmed in front of a live audience.

What Chasers are taking part?

Previous series have seen Mark Labbett, Anne Hegerty, Shaun Wallace, Jenny Ryan and Paul Sinha compete against the hopeful quizzers.

Series four welcomes Darragh Ennis to the panel as a permanent Chaser.

Previously, he appeared as a replacement when Paul Sinha was unable to film due to his Parkinson’s diagnosis.

The Chase fans know that Darragh is a former contestant on The Chase who banked £9000 back in 2017.

He’s the first new Chaser since Jenny Ryan joined the series in 2015.

So series four will be the first time all six Chasers will appear together.

Jenny reveals: “It’s great to be all together with my five colleagues.

“We all have slightly different skill sets and specialities so it’s reassuring to know that we have most bases covered between us.”
