Shaun – known as The Dark Destroyer on the show – shocked everyone when he strode out with his new facial hair.
Even host Bradley Walsh couldn’t believe it!
Shaun Wallace shows off beard on The Chase
In yesterday’s brand new episode, Dave, Bella, Kieron and Lisa-Jane made up the team to take on the Chaser.
Host Bradley revealed that it would be Shaun that they would be taking on, but everyone had to do a double-take when the 61-year-old trivia king walked down the corridor and into the hot seat.
Rocking a neat grey beard, he looked every inch the distinguished gentleman.
Even Bradders complimented him on his appendage… well, he immediately launched into some banter.
“What have you come as?” Bradley asked.
“You’re no longer the Dark Destroyer. Honestly, he’s supposed to be menacing, but he’s like your favourite uncle now.”
