THE CHASE is a weekday fan favourite which see’s team-players go head-to-head with some of Britain’s quizmasters in their bid to secure thousands of pounds.
The popular quiz show, hosted by former Coronation Street actor and TV presenter Bradley Walsh has been a fan favourite since it began in 2009.
The past decade has seen the laughter, joy and tears from the quiz show.
Team-players learn surprising facts about each other as well as the Chasers who have become recognisable faces on TV.
Unfortunately, the quiz show will now take a break from our screens from this week onwards.
Today’s celebrity special will be the final one on TV this year.
The Chase’ slot will be filled with Cash Strapped which will also be presented by Bradley Walsh.
It is therefore unsurprising why the show will have to take a break until next year.
However, unlike The Chase, the game show will have a different format which will see six contestants sit in futuristic blue boxes before the presenter.
The show will have a series of rounds where players will compete to fill their pot of money and “cash strap” each other by answering the questions correctly.
Fans will notice the big difference as team-players take on the Chaser by answering correctly on The Chase while they will have to answer correctly to each other on Cash Strapped.
Each episode has four rounds and six remain on the show until one of them successfully escapes in the final round.
This could either go really well like The Chase or it may not.
During its debut in 2016, the new game show was criticised because of its complexity and viewers demanded the return of the Chase.
Paul Sinha or ‘The Sinnerman’ who is one of The Chase’ quizmaster described the first show as “weird”.
An ITV spokeswoman told the Daily Star Online: “The second series of Cash Trapped is airing for 30 episodes weekdays at 5pm from November 11
“The Chase returns after this series.”
Viewers have already shared their thoughts on the show as one tweeted: “Still have no idea how Cash Strapped works. It’s basically “Numberwang”.
Another commented: “Oh Brad. Much as I love you, I won’t be watching Cash Strapped again. My head is spinning.”
“I seriously don’t get Cash Strapped,” a third added.
