The Chase's Paul Sinha unable to continue 'most enjoyable' part of career due to illness

He tweeted back in March: “New episodes of Beat the Chasers are on their way.

“Unfortunately, I wasn’t well for the recordings and couldn’t join in this time around. I’m feeling much better now. X.”

Paul is one of the six Chasers on the ITV game show The Chase, alongside Mark Labbett, Jenny Ryan, Shaun Wallace, Darragh Ennis and Anne Hegerty.

He previously said he would quit The Chase if he began to struggle answering the questions at speed, due to suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

“The Chase won’t fire me,” he told Loose Women panellists. “I’ll say, ‘It’s been a lovely journey, you’ve treated me very well, see you later’.”

Paul Sinha health: Fellow chaser Anne gives update on his illness – 'He wasn’t very well'

It is not known what the quizzer’s illness was and whether or not it was related to his Parkinson’s disease, which he was diagnosed with in 2019.

When he went public with his diagnosis he vowed to “fight it with every breath I have”.

Writing in a post on his blog, Paul said: “In the time since my Parkinson’s started, I have been ludicrously busy, and fully intend to keep Chasing, keep writing and performing comedy, keep quizzing and keep being hopeless at Tasks.”

He continued: “Dancing on Ice is, I suspect, out of the question. A lot of people have asked, ‘What can I do to help?’ The answer is to treat me exactly the same as before.”
