Contestants have 1 minute to build up as much cash as they can by answering quick-fire questions. Each question is worth £1000.
The Chaser's Offers
The amount the contestant wins goes onto the board, three steps ahead of the Chaser. Contestants then have the chance to change their starting position - if they want a bigger head start on the Chaser, they can start one step closer to home, but the Chaser will offer them a lesser amount of money. This could even mean a minus amount! Or, if they are feeling brave, they can start a step closer to the Chaser for which they will be offered a higher amount!
Decision made, every correct answer to multiple choice questions moves the contestant and their money one step closer to home however, get a question wrong and they stay where they are. The Chaser answers the same questions and tries to close the gap between them. Make it home safely and they go through to the Final Chase along with the money they have built up, but get caught and they go out with nothing.
The Final Chase
Surviving contestants work as a team to answer as many questions as they can in 2 minutes. For every contestant through to The Final Chase, they get an extra step head start on the Chaser. They then get one step for every correct answer and must then watch nervously as the Chaser is given two minutes to try and catch them. If the Chaser gets a question wrong and the team can get it right, they push the Chaser back one step. If the Chaser fails to catch the team, they win and split the cash pot equally between them; if they are caught they go home with nothing.
