The Chase: Shaun Wallace denies contestants winning £60,000
Beat The Chasers is a spin-off programme inspired by popular game show The Chase. In the new year, the programme will be back for a second season and now one of the stars of the show, Shaun Wallace, dubbed The Dark Destroyer, has spoken out about the panel.
The 60-year-old English barrister said the chasers were better at working as a team in series two, which made them stronger overall.
He said they had been playing “very well” together.
In the new series, which will air on January 3, Shaun is joined by his The Chase colleagues and host of both shows Bradley Walsh.
The panel includes Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha and Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan.

Speaking about the upcoming series, Shaun said: ”Series one was unknown territory in terms of whether or not we could actually work together as a team and certain cracks did appear,” he said.
“I’ve noticed in series two we’re working together more as a team and as best as we possibly can in the time frame we’ve got.
“Obviously, Paul’s a very good all-rounder and Mark’s very quick on the buzzer.
“And they’re playing very, very well. I think we’re all playing very well as a team.
“I think we’re better this time around working as a unit,” he went on to say.
The show’s presenter Bradley said he was excited that the general knowledge show was back for another series.
He said: “I am over the moon that Beat The Chasers is back for a second series.
“We had such a fantastic time on the first series and myself and the chasers are raring to go for this second outing.

“If another series wasn’t enough to be getting on with, we’ve also got more episodes – airing for seven nights on ITV.”
The programme sees contestants go head-to-head with all the Chasers.
They can take on between two and five of the quizzers.
The more they take on, the more money then can take home.
New chaser Darragh Ennis, a former contestant on The Chase, will not take part in series two of Beat The Chasers.
Reports suggest that programme makers were not sure if he would have made his debut on the main show before it aired.
In actual fact, Darragh, nicknamed ‘The Menace’, appeared on the quiz show on November 19.
Beat The Chasers starts on January 3 at 9pm on ITV.
