ITV host Bradley Walsh assisted four new contestants, Perry, Ros, Anna, and Ben, on The Chase this afternoon as they went up against Chaser Paul Sinha for the jackpot prize. The first player to face The Sinnerman was film buff Perry, who schooled the popular Chaser about 1930s literature and Hitchcock cinema.
First contestant Perry got off to a great start on The Chase after gaining £7,000 in the initial cash-builder.
The film buff stuck with the middle offer and faced off against Chaser Paul in a tense showdown.
Perry was just two questions away from adding his money to the prize pot when Paul made a costly mistake when answering a literature question.
“In what decade was Daphne Du Maurier’s novel ‘Jamaica Inn’ first published?” Bradley asked.
Perry answered “1930s”, which was correct, yet Paul made a glaring blunder when he answered the “1950s”.
Perry and host Bradley seemed confident in their choice of answer after remembering that Jamaica Inn was the basis for a 1930s Hitchcock film of the same name, which starred Charles Laughton.
Paul, realising his mistake, said: “I forgot it was made into a film.”
The Chase contestant went on to add: “1939. Hitchcock.”
Paul appeared to be venting his frustrations at missing the relatively easy answer, saying: “I’m really, really annoyed by that.”
And the blunder proved to be a costly one as Perry made it back to the Final Chase with the money he’d earned.
Unfortunately, two of the other players, Ros and Ben, were beaten by the Chaser.
Though, third contestant Anna, who added £8,000 to the prize fund, joined Perry in the Final Chase for a total win of £15,000.
Paul beat the two contestants in a dramatic final chase with only 25 seconds remaining on the clock.
The former general practitioner and stand-up comedian walked off the set recently after he gave the worst ever answers during the current series.
Leaving him incredibly frustrated, Paul took to Twitter to explain that his terrible performance was in no way related to his ongoing illness, he was just having a bad day.
Writing: “Just seen today’s Chase. Just awful. Absolutely no illness-related excuses. Just one of those days.”
Paul’s return to The Chase is a welcome one, as he missed filming for the current third series of spin-off show Beat The Chasers due to illness.
After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019, Paul has been flooded with support from fans on social media.
Paul has not confirmed whether his absence from the upcoming Beat the Chasers is attributed to his ongoing Parkinson’s battle.
The Sinnerman took to Twitter to explain his absence, writing: “On the week of recording, I was unwell. Happens.”
He has been a part of the quiz show since 2011, after joining as the fourth Chaser.
The Chase airs on weekdays on ITV at 5pm, with Beat The Chasers returning at 9pm on ITV from May 3 to 7.
