Kieron was the first contestant to take on the Chaser yesterday (April 13), after already racking up an impressive £5,000 in his cash builder.

The player was unaware of which Chaser he’d be facing, but host Bradley Walsh was keen to hear who he’d most like to face off against.

It’s no surprise that after Kieron’s brutal blow, Shaun was the Chaser to emerge from backstage and face off against the player.

I backed it after he called me a useless Chaser.

Taking to his seat, Shaun sternly said: “He’s right. He’s not wrong. Let’s get on with this.”

Unfortunately, Shaun was unable to catch Kieron and he made it to the Final Chase with £5,000.

After his loss, Shaun later said: “I backed it after he called me a useless Chaser.”

Bradley tried to defend Kieron but Shaun hit back: “He basically implied that.”
