The Chase news

In other The Chase related news, the Beast, aka Mark Labbett, took a pop at producers and his co-star recently.

Last week, the 51-year-old took to Twitter to moan about the fact that he had been “sidelined” during Friday’s show.

Sat out three straight games in last position on #BeatTheChasers,” he said in a tweet for his 158.8k followers to see.

“215-1 odds of that happening. Looks like I am on the subs bench tonight,” he continued.

He then went on to claim that who plays is predetermined before the show.

When told that he sounded upset, Mark tweeted saying: “Wear a dress, get more shows.”

This seemed to be a dig at his co-star, Jenny Ryan, who got more shows than him.
