Michael, Ross, Joel and Elizabeth took on Paul Sinha – also known as brainiac The Sinnerman – in the hope of beating him and winning thousands.

And host Bradley Walsh – and fans watching at home – were left stunned when two of the contestants made history.

The two players, Michael and Ross, consecutively won an amazing £10,000 on the cash builder after correctly answering 10 questions each.

This has NEVER been seen before on the ITV show.

After Michael and Ross both managed the impress feat, host Bradley exclaimed: “I don’t remember that happening – ever! First two out of the traps, 10 each.”

Chaser Paul had to agree, adding: “I can’t speak for any of the other Chasers but that’s definitely the first time two players have got two or more.”

WOW, well done guys!

Fans were seriously impressed (for a change!), with one tweeting: “Watched #TheChase again, Michael and Ross! The strongest players I’ve seen to date! Tremendous knowledge and deserved the win! Well done!”

Another said: “Don’t think I have ever seen 2 people get £10,000 on the cash builder before, impressive that. #TheChase.”

Meanwhile, Ross tweeted: “Thanks for having me @ITVChase. Was an amazing experience and have loved seeing the great feedback about the episode! #thechase.”

Michael and Ross both went through to the final chase, and were joined by third contestant Joel, who took £5,000 through to the final.

Perhaps you won’t be surprised to hear that they won the prize money after getting 20 questions for the Final Chase.

This means the team went home with over £8,000 each.
