Bradley Walsh hosts a special Christmas-themed episode of the celebrity series of the popular quiz show, inviting more famous faces to take on the ruthless quiz genius known as the Chaser in aid of charity.
As usual, 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 now five different trivia experts who carry the title of Chaser – stand-up comedian Paul “The Sinnerman” Sinha, Anne “The Governess” Hegerty, Shaun “The Barrister” Wallace, Mark “The Beast” Labbett and Jenny “The Vixen” Ryan – but which of the formidable five will emerge from the darkness for this week’s celebrity battle of wits? 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?
Taking on the Chaser in tonight’s festive battle are Coronation Street actor Patti Clare, comedian Matt Richardson, journalist and presenter Kirsty Wark and singer and actor Jimmy Osmond. Will there be any money in the kitty for the final chase in this week’s episode, and does this group of celebrities have what it takes to beat the Chaser?
A Christmas Chase: Celebrity special airs Sunday 24 December 2017 from 5.50pm on ITV.
