The newest member of The Chase family had a message for Jenny Ryan – as she came unstuck against a ‘super team’.
A trio of great players – Eva, Emma and Gary – managed to bag £20,000 in the prize pot, despite saying goodbye to fellow contestant Jack earlier in the show.
They then went on to score 20 points for the final Chase – which ultimately proved too much for The Vixen, who still had 3 to get right when time ran out.
It seems Darragh Ennis was watching – and said she ‘had her work cut out’ for her during The Chase competition, the Liverpool Echo reports.
The newest Chaser, also known as The Menace, tweeted thoughts on tonight’s episode from his Twitter account @bones_giles.
After contestants Eva and Emma managed to take back £7,000 each, The Menace called them ‘clever women.’ He said: “Well, some clever women on #TheChase this afternoon!”
Darragh then followed up his tweet with another comment and message for fellow-Chaser Jenny Ryan, also known as The Vixen.
He added: “£14k for two players is really excellent. If Gary gets back this might be tough for Jen. #TheChase.”
And: “Nice final question for the chef and £20k for three players is a super team. Jen might have her work cut out here! #TheChase.”
The Menace predicted correctly as the team – Gary, Emma and Eva – managed to beat The Vixen.
The team managed to get 20 steps in the final chase and won with three steps remaining.
In the final chase there were five attempts to push back and the team executed three of them.
The three took home the prize of £20,000 between them, making it £6,666 each
Bradley Walsh said: “Well played, brilliant, £20,000 smackers, absolutely sensational.” He added: “Chaser, great match by the way great match.”
Jenny Ryan said: “Really well played team, by setting 20 you gave me just a little bit too much to do when I had a couple of mental arithmetic style questions in there.”
The Chase viewers congratulated the team on their win on Twitter, with one fan @Zonechase saying : “A very well-deserved victory for today’s team! 20 is an excellent score, and executing 3/5 pushbacks put even more pressure on the Vixen.”
Another @RealCameronMcUK said: “Very well played to the team tonight against The Vixen tonight on The Chase.”
And @charybdis1966 said: “Well done team – happy for them all – especially the hero of the round: Emma. #TheChase”
The Chase continues at 5pm on ITV tomorrow.
