What happens in Beat The Chasers?

The spin-off show, which also has Bradley Walsh as its host, turns the format of the ITV quiz show on its head – with a single player facing off against multiple chasers.

Paul’s warning to trolls comes after a considerable error the quiz champ made in the first series that shocked viewers at home.
