What happened on The Chase last night?

The contestant who made a great impression on viewers was Esther – a 45-year-old solicitor.

Fans of the show knew they were watching someone special during the cash builder round.

Esther managed to sail through the cash builder in spectacular style.

The solicitor from Brentwood didn’t miss a single question as she accumulated a whopping £10,000!

“Ah mate, that was unbelievable, truly,” Bradley Walsh said at the end of the round. He then went on to tell her that what she had achieved was “truly magic” and very “rare”.

After her brilliant performance on the cash builder round, Esther then took on Jenny Ryan, aka The Vixen.

Jenny offered Esther the opportunity to play for £40,000.

However, Esther played it safe and stuck with the £10,000 she’d already bagged. The Vixen failed to catch her and she brought the £10k with her into the final round.

In the Final Chase, Esther and her teammates played for £21,000. They took on The Vixen.

Together, they managed to answer 20 questions correctly, giving Jenny an uphill battle to contend with.

It proved too much of a challenge for Jenny, who failed to catch the contestants – meaning they walked away with £21k!
