We all love a good old quiz show, especially when we take part from the comfort of our living rooms.
And The Chase has a loyal fan base who tune into ITV every afternoon to watch a Chaser trying to outrun four contestants.
Host Bradley Walsh also offers entertainment through his banter and witty one-liners.
Sometimes the show has the audience on the edge of their seats as the players triumph to answer more questions than the chaser and win a cash prize.

Since the quiz show launched in 2009 the brainbox chasers have grown to become TV stars in their own right, but which one has the most cash in their bank?
Let’s take a look at the estimated net worths of Anne Hegarty, Jenny Ryan, Shaun Wallace, Mark Labbett, and Paul Sinha to see who is the richest chaser.
As newbie Darragh ‘The Menance’ Ennis has only been a chaser since last year, there isn’t much information from the celeb net worth fairies yet on how much he is worth so we’ve purposely excluded him from our analysis, it doesn’t mean we love him any less!
Anne Hegerty is famed for answering ‘impossible’ questions and is a tough nut to crack.
The 63-year-old joined The Chase in 2010 and has also been a regular on the Australian version of the show.
Before arriving as a chaser, brain box Anne also appeared on quiz shows Fifteen to One, Brain of Britain, Are You an Egghead? and Mastermind.
Anne captured the hearts of the nation when she took part in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here in 2018 and finished in seventh place.
She has been the host of Britain’s Brightest Family since 2018 and takes part in Beat The Chasers and The Chasers Road Trip, so it’s no surprise Anne is reported to have a very healthy net worth of £2.8 million.

Like his co-star Anne, Paul Sinha had also appeared on other TV quiz shows before he became a chaser in 2011.
The 51-year-old is also an established stand-up comedian following a career as a GP.
Adding up all of Paul’s exploits, he’s thought to be worth around £1 million.
Not only is Mark Labbett famed for this role as The Beast but he’s also becoming a social media sensation as he shares his incredible 10 stone weight loss journey with his Instagram followers.
He’s also an original Chaser and has become well known across the Atlantic thanks to his spot on The Chase USA.
And who can forget the time he appeared on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and went home with a cool £32k cash prize.
With all this in mind, the 56-year-old reportedly has a net worth of £1.4 million. Not bad for a guy who started his quizzing career in Butlins!

In 2019, the 39-year-old competed in The X Factor: Celebrity and finished in third place, in the same year she also appeared on Celebrity Masterchef.
Thanks to her television success, Jenny is now thought to be worth a whopping £2.8 million – on par with her co-star Anne.
The Dark Destroyer

The 61-year-old has been a chaser since the ITV show launched in 2009 and has written an autobiography: “Chasing the Dream: An Autobiography.”
