What is ITV changing on The Chase?

ITV is gearing up to mark the climate change COP26 talks in Glasgow.

From the week commencing November 1, numerous popular shows will undergo some noticeable changes.

One of those will be The Chase, which will have many of its regular questions altered to be more “green-themed” and climate-related.

However, The Chase isn’t the only show in ITV’s daytime schedule to be impacted.

Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, This Morning and Loose Women will also devote large parts of their respective shows to highlighting environmental issues during the week.

The aim is to raise awareness about climate issues and help to protect future generations before it’s too late.

It comes after ITV previously announced that the UK’s biggest soaps would be airing special crossover episodes.

These special episodes will feature scenes that help to highlight the climate crisis.
