However, it was claimed that he was married to a woman named Matilda Bray and they tied the knot in 1990.

But the Daily Express reported last year that Shaun threatened legal action against Wikipedia for continuing this claim.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “There is no Matilda, never was.”

Does Shaun still practice law?

Shaun is still a practising lawyer and was called to the Bar in 1986.

He told The University Of Law website: “Ever since I was a young boy, I wanted to be a barrister.”

Shaun continued: “I’ve had many memorable moments in my career.

“The most recent of those being securing an acquittal for my client who was charged with double attempted murder, double attempted GBH and double attempted use of firearms at the Old Bailey in June 2019.”

What did his career advisor tell him?

On the recent Channel 5 documentary Racism: My Story he opened up about the prejudices he faced as a youngster.

“When I was 11 alongside my classmate, we both wrote to the Bar council,” he said during the programme.

“And we got that letter back and it told us what we need to do qualify to be a lawyer.

At best, you’re going to end up a thief and in prison, and at worst you’ll probably end up packing shelves.

“At the age of 15 you have to go and see your careers teacher, and I showed her that letter.

“‘You, Wallace? Lawyer? At best, you’re going to end up a thief and in prison, and at worst you’ll probably end up packing shelves’.”

Little did they know what a success Shaun would become.

How did he get on to The Chase?

In 2004, Shaun became champion of BBC quiz show Mastermind.

His specialist subject in the final was FA Cup finals.
