Episode 2 - The French family
 
Is a family of four clever enough to take on one of the country’s finest quiz brains? Tonight, the French family from Wiltshire take on the challenge and hope to win thousands of pounds. Bradley Walsh hosts.  
 
Series overview
 
Bradley Walsh fronts The Family Chase, a Saturday tea-time version of the international hit game show, which is now made in more than 10 countries.
 
Each show features a different family trying to stay one step ahead of the chaser for the opportunity to win a cash pot worth thousands.
 
The four contestants will each answer a series of general knowledge questions as they attempt to get their tactics right and make it into the final chase, where they will then face the chaser once again for the chance to walk away with the prize.
 
Chasers Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha and Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan will be doing their best to ensure they leave with nothing. 
 
Host Bradley said: “Let four members of a family loose on The Chase and you get The Family Chase. What we quickly discovered was that families aren't frightened to say what they mean and mean what they say. Imagine anything you've said to your family whilst you're watching our show, in the privacy of your front room, well, these families take it into the studio. There’s none of the usual ‘just come back, we want you in the final chase’ it’s ‘if you go low, you can forget Christmas at my house’. If the Walsh family appeared as a team, that’s exactly what we'd say. There'd be no soft soaping that's for sure!
 
“I loved making The Family Chase, and with this twist on the format you'll love it too!”
