The Celebrity Chase
Bradley Walsh will host The Chase quiz show where each day four celebrities pit their wits against
The Chaser, a ruthless quiz genius
determined to stop them winning at all costs.
The four Celebrity contestants must work as a team, answering general knowledge questions and playing a strategic game in order to win their charity a cash pot worth thousands of pounds!
The celebs take it in turns to build a cash sum by answering quick fire questions against the clock. Each must then go head-to-head with The Chaser in a race to get their money into the team prize pot without being caught.
In the chase down the game board, every right answer moves the celebrity a step closer to the exit, and every wrong answer gives The Chaser the chance to close the gap.
If the celebritiy contestant gets out without being caught, their money is added to the team prize pot. However, if The Chaser catches them first, the money is lost for the team and the celeb is out of the game.
The game concludes with the remaining contestants entering a two minute quick fire round where each correct answer pushes them along the exit route.
The Beast, The Barrister, The Governess and brand new Chaser The Sinnerman will be aiming to bring the celebrities down to size as they go brain to brain, ego to ego but who will reign supreme? CHASER or CELEBRITY?
