ITV viewers got a second chance to see a group of celebrities take on Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett on Saturday night, during a classic episode of The Chase Celebrity Special. Host Bradley Walsh welcomed comedian Russell Kane, actress Leonie Elliott, former Strictly Come Dancing professional Kevin Clifton and actress Bonnie Langford onto the show. The celebrities were hoping to win a cash prize for charity, but first had to take on the Chaser. However, when Mark got off to a bumpy start, Bradley couldn’t help but tease his co-star after he unusually got multiple questions wrong in a row.
Russell was the first celebrity player to step up and got off to a great start with his cash builder round.
The comedy star successfully answered eight questions correctly, securing £8,000 in prize money.
When Bradley asked Russell who he’d like to play against and why, he made a brutal joke about Mark.
He remarked: “I don’t think it’s The Beast because I haven’t heard a forklift approaching the stairs at the back.”
However, Bradley soon revealed Russell would in fact be taking on Mark head to head.
Scolding the comedian for his cheeky comment about the Chaser’s size, Bradley said: “Shocking by the way that comment, absolutely disgusting the way you said that.”
“Are all the comments audible backstage?” Russell joked, with Mark exclaiming: “Yes they are!”
Before they moved on to the quiz, Mark made Russell a higher offer of £40,000 to play for.
However, not wanting to risk being caught, the comedian chose to stick with the £8,000 he’d earned.
Both Russell and Mark got the first question correct, but things soon took a turn.
Bradley read out the second question: “A 2018 study found that the average Briton spends a total of how many full days a year checking their phone?”
Russell correctly answered ’22 days’, but confessed: “Honestly I didn’t really have a clue, so my strategy was to guess and put The Beast under pressure.”
His method paid off as Mark incorrectly chose ‘2 days’ as his answer.
Bradley quickly congratulated Russell, giving him a high five and exclaiming: “And there, Russell, is the pressure press!”
“He’s loving it, look,” Russell remarked, teasing the Chaser.
Moving onto the next question, Bradley asked: “What did Ambrose Bierce call ‘A familiar kitchen-garden vegetable about as large and wise as a man’s head’?”
Russell chose ‘a cabbage’ as his answer and was correct once again, but the same couldn’t be said for The Beast.
The comedian yelled in delight as Bradley revealed Mark had incorrectly answered ‘a cauliflower’.
“Do you want some Savlon for that? It’s gonna sting!” Russell exclaimed, mocking the Chaser.
When Mark managed to get the next question correct, Bradley teased him further, saying: “Welcome to the game Beastie boy!”
Mark was left unimpressed when Russell eventually made it back to his team with the £8,000 and Bradley enjoyed rubbing it in.
“Beastie boy, look at the face of him,” the presenter laughed.
“Nothing I could do about it, as far as I’m concerned he’s £32,000 light,” Mark replied, referencing the fact Russell could have gone for the higher offer instead.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
