The Chase viewers hailed Chaser Darragh Ennis as he went 14 shows unbeaten after yesterday’s instalment (Thursday June 3).
The 47-year-old Irishman only joined the ITV quiz show in November 2020.
But he has already racked up an impressive tally of final chase victories.
And viewers are in awe of his quizzing powers on The Chase.
What happened on The Chase with Darragh Ennis yesterday?
Darragh settled into his seat to take on another four contestants.
And, as the show went by, he dispatched one by one without too much trouble.
In fact, for the final chase, only one contestant remained.
With Sonny left all on his own he was only able to score 11 points in his defence of £2,000.
And, with so few questions to get right, The Menace took his time and ruthlessly wiped Sonny out with over a minute to spare.
Darragh’s win was his 14th in a row and he currently remains unbeaten.
Another win for this Darragh chap. He'll be quite good once he settles in. #TheChase

What else happened on The Chase yesterday?

A third wrote: “Spotted the Grease connection immediately… waiting for the ‘penny to drop for Brad’ klaxon #TheChase.”
