The Chase star Shaun Wallace was defeated last night as fans demanded show bosses make contestant Barclay a Chaser.
Their demands came after the 32-year-old from York won 83k on his Chase round.
Furthermore, Barclay then carried the load in the final Chase, defeating Shaun and bagging an amazing £90,000 – the second-highest haul for a team in series history.
What happened on The Chase with Shaun Wallace yesterday?
After Gemma and Jonathan filled their coffers with a combined £7,000, it was Barclay’s time to shine.
The dad-of-one put some markers down by winning £10k in his cashbuilder.
Shaun offered a high offer of 83k and despite the advice of his teammates, Barclay went high and stormed his Chase to bag the cash.
With a prize pot of £90,000 and three in the team, they managed to score 18.
However, host Bradley Walsh slammed them saying the time they took in between questions was “excruciating”.
But, after pushing back Shaun twice in the final Chase, they managed to bag the cash with Barclay answering most of the questions.
Barclay would make a good Chaser, just saying. #TheChase
