What’s next for The Chase?
Regardless of whether fans will get new episodes soon, one thing we do that’s coming back is Beat The Chasers.
The channel confirmed series three of the spin-off show, with the addition of two celebrity specials.
It will be the first time a celebrity edition has been seen in Beat The Chasers.
However, the news received a mixed reaction from viewers.
One said: “It’s a long time since a celebrity special has felt special. Let the regular folk have a chance at life-changing money #thechase.”
Another said: “Great news! But never keen on the ‘celebrity versions’ myself.”
What has happened on ITV show The Chase lately?
Meanwhile, last week, viewers of The Chase praised a contestant for ‘carrying’ the team to victory.
Taking on Chaser Shaun Wallace in the head-to-head, Jerome managed to retain his £5k and take it back to the team.
Then, in the final chase, he answered 13 questions right out of a total of 20.
After beating the Chaser, viewers congratulated the team and especially Jerome.
“I’m going to say it, I love Jerome. Absolute player #TheChase,” one viewer said.
Another commented: “#TheChase great performance from Jerome his shoulders must be aching carrying his teammates.”
