What did Beat The Chaser star Shaun Wallace say about his fellow Chasers?

Shaun – aka The Dark Destroyer – appeared on Lorraine yesterday morning (Monday May 4) disclosed his thoughts of his fellow Chasers.

Ranvir Singh, standing in for Lorraine Kelly, pressed him on who he thought would be the toughest to take on out of Anne Hegerty, Mark Labbett, Paul Sinha, Jenny Ryan and Darragh Ennis.

“Have you ever, as a play-around, ever been a contestant on there?” Ranvir asked.

“We haven’t,” Shaun replied.

“But if you were to ask me who was the top Chaser, it would be hard.

“I would say that Anne is the most consistent, Jenny is certainly on fantastic form.

“Fantastic results”

In addition, Shaun said: “Our new Chaser Darragh Ennis – The Menace – is a wonderful welcome edition as you’ve seen stepping up from being a contestant to a Chaser.

“He’s produced fantastic results.”

It was then he told Ranvir who he thought is the toughest out of his five counterparts.

But I suppose Mark and Paul are really standout in terms of being consistent, being quick and being extremely clever.
