ITV’s award-winning quiz The Chase is launching an exclusive spin-off The Chase EXTRA on the ITV Hub

The brand new shorts see each of the formidable Chasers turn quizmaster, setting fans their own set of 10 quiz questions and answers, dropping every Monday at 6pm for six weeks from Monday 8th March 2021. 

Mark ‘The Beast Labbett’, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace and Darragh ‘The Menace’ Ennis will each present an episode, exclusively for ITV Hub viewers. 

As well as quiz questions, the beloved brainiacs will include their own unique interval - including telling jokes, giving quiz tips or playing a musical instrument. 

2020 saw The Chase, which is produced by Potato, part of ITV Studios, record its best ever year for audience volume. In November The Chase broke the 5m mark for the first time and did so a further two times in 2020, leading to its largest audience ever on November 25th with 5.1m viewers. The Chase is distributed internationally by ITV Studios and has been commissioned in 15 international territories, including Australia, Denmark, Germany, Spain and the U.S., where it launched in January on ABC.  

The Chase EXTRA is being made in partnership with Gala Bingo and will be available via the ITV Hub www.itv.com and stv.tv.
