New Chaser

Issa’s personality shone through more during last night’s show – especially in comparison to Monday night’s episode.

The 38-year-old Australian star was a little quiet on Monday, but there was good reason for this.

Mark Labbett, aka the Beast, took to Twitter to explain why Issa hadn’t been overly chatty during his Beat the Chasers debut.

In case you think @Issa25 is quiet, he got off the plane from Australia a few hours before we recorded this #jetlag #BeatTheChasers,” he tweeted.

In an interview with The Sun, Issa revealed that he had been on a plane to the UK within hours of getting the call from ITV that he was needed to replace Anne.

“It was close to 1am Brisbane time – I’m a night owl and my Australia boss said to the UK bosses, ‘Just call him up, he’ll be up.’ And then I was on the plane, I think it was close to 9am that very morning,” he said.
