The Chase star Mark Labbett has given fans a glimpse into his Rotherham home which he shares with his son and dog after splitting with his wife.

Mark, also known as The Beast on the popular ITV show hosted by Bradley Walsh, spends his days filming the popular quiz show where he remains one of the most feared ‘Chasers’.

But when filming finishes, he returns back to his bachelor pad, which he’s given fans a sneak peek of through a series of snaps and TV appearances filmed at home.

The popular quizmaster is originally from down south but now resides in Rotherham, as reported by Yorkshire Live.

Mark’s living room wooden furniture, a huge flat screen TV and a cosy grey sofa where he can relax with his dog can all be seen.

Fans also caught a glimpse of his spacious kitchen with central island when Mark appeared in an interview on This Morning via video link.

The kitchen is minimally decorated with cream cupboards and black work tops, with a ceiling rack for hanging pots and pans.

The neutral theme continues into the bedrooms, one room that appears on Mark’s Instagram regularly features cream walls, oak furniture and wooden venetian blinds.

A huge bookshelf filled with literature can also be seen in one of the rooms.

The 55-year-old split from his wife Katie, 28, last year. The pair tied the knot in 2014 at Arundel Cathedral in West Sussex and were in an open marriage for six years.

The nurse grew close to senior design engineer Scott Bate, 30, but instead of breaking up with his cheating wife Mark agreed to try an open marriage.

However, despite his best efforts, Mark announced that he and Katie, 28, would be ending their marriage in August last year, blaming their troubles on their 27-year age gap and the strain of lockdown.

Mark moved out out their Hertfordshire home and has now set up camp as a single man.

They share a son together but keep him firmly out of the public eye, Mark previously said: “You won’t find a pic of our son, nor am I gonna name him.

“If he wants to have social media when he’s older he can but I won’t do it for him. I want to embarrass him when he’s old enough to embarrass me back.”

The Devon-born star has multiple qualifications under his belt, including a Master of Arts degree in mathematics, a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in secondary education and legal CPE and LPC qualifications.

The Beast shot to fame when he joined The Chase in 2009, following earlier appearances on Mastermind and Countdown.

The media personality has certainly undergone a break-up glow-up as he recently revealed an impressive five stone body transformation.

He took to social media to show off his new figure after he drastically went from a size 5XL to XL in underpants.
