The Chase Celebrity Special (ITV 14 Nov 2015 with Dr Chris Jessen)

Published

on

AIRDATE: Saturday 14th November 2015 at 7.00pm on ITV

Time for another instalment of the popular quiz show, inviting another quartet of famous faces to take on the ruthless quiz genius known as the Chaser in aid of charity.

The contestants each have a shot at building up money for a limitless final prize as decided by the Chaser, but must then secure whatever they have earned during a head-to-head battle of wits with him or her.

There are four different trivia experts who carry the title of Chaser – stand-up comedian Paul “The Sinnerman” Sinha, Anne “The Governess” Hegerty, Shaun “The Barrister” Wallace and Mark “The Beast” Labbett – but which of the formidable four will emerge from the darkness for this week’s show?

The Chasers do not hold back as they attempt to reduce contestants to quivering wrecks with their astounding and wide-ranging knowledge, but just how much can they manage to intimidate this week’s star guests?

Famous players in the series so far have included newsreader Fiona Bruce, journalist John Sergeant, Dragons’ Den’s Deborah Meaden, TV presenters Rick Edwards and Mariella Frostrup, comedy impressionist Rory Bremner and actor Joe Swash, who achieved varying levels of success as they tried their best to raise money for their respective good causes.

Will there be any money in the kitty for the final chase this week as Embarrassing Bodies’ Dr Christian Jessen, JB Gill from boy band JLS, comedian Helen Lederer and snooker star Stephen Hendry take on the challenge?

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
