The Chase was back on ITV with the first instalment of the quiz show of the week. Joining Bradley Walsh in the Chaser hot seat tonight was Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett. But during the final round, viewers thought his questions were slightly easier than the contestants.
The contestants hoping to take a portion of the cash prize home with them was Steve, Virinder, Julie and Pat.
Those watching at home saw Steve up first and after a tidy £6,000 cash builder, he opted to stay in the middle.
As the game begun, it wasn’t long before the comment “first up and first out” left Bradley’s lips.
Virinder then hoped to not follow suit and after being offered £1,000, stick with his £3,000 or be tempted by the £26,000, he chose to play it safe.

But Mark was on fire and he followed in Steve’s footsteps.
As for Julie, she changed the game pattern and managed to return to the desk with £4,000.
Pat joined her, adding a lovely £6,000 to the prize fund and the Final Chase was then on.
Together they managed to accumulate 18 steps ahead, but when it was Mark’s turn, some viewers criticised the questions he was being asked.
Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “easy questions for mark #TheChase.”
“#thechase could the chaser have had any easier questions? I could have answered most,” another remarked.
A third wrote: “Easy Questions for Mark today #TheChase.”
While someone else added: “That was easy peasy #Thechase.”
