Beat The Chaser’s newest celebrity contestants on Saturday included Loose Women panellist Brenda Edwards, former EastEnders actor Jake Wood, MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace, and newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy, alongside Joly. However, all the Chasers were left humiliated when Joly walked away with the grand prize just minutes into the show.

ITV host Bradley Walsh helped five new contestants on the celebrity special of Beat The Chasers on Saturday evening.

The celebrities all battled Chasers Anne Hegerty, Jenny Ryan, Shaun Wallace, Mark Labbett, and Darragh Ennis, for the cash prize.

Contestant number one was comedian and travel writer Dom Joly, whose brilliant performance shocked viewers and the Chasers.

Joly accepted the highest offer of £50,000 for his chosen charity, and went head-to-head with all five Chasers.

Impressed viewers took to Twitter to discuss Joly choosing the highest cash sum, with many hoping he would win.

One fan wrote: “He’s gone for the top offer well done Dom good luck #BeatTheChasers”.

Another wrote: “He’s going for all five for 50k! #BeatTheChasers”.

“Good luck Dom. I Jolly well hope you do it. See what I dud there? #BeatTheChasers,” a third joked.

In response to his winning, another wrote: “A Joly good performance #BeatTheChasers”.

In deciding which offer to take, Joly said: “44 [seconds] is a good offer for £50,000”.

“You have a 16 second time advantage but you are taking on a full house,” Bradley replied.

However, as Joly was playing, he answered correct question after correct question, and the Chasers appeared stressed that he was doing so well.

However, Mark Labbett missed an EastEnders question, which cost the Chasers crucial time.

Though, Joly did miss a Killing Eve and a Yogi Bear question as the play continued.

After Joly won the £50,000 cash prize, with 30 seconds to spare, the Chasers seemed surprised but were impressed at his knowledge.

“Did not see that coming,” said Mark.

“Honestly, I know you’re upset but that money is going to somebody really seriously that needs it,” Joly said to his opposition.

Shaun simply replied: “You earned it”.

Joly then exclaimed that he was “so happy” at his win, as Bradley appeared delighted to say that he had “beaten a full house”.

It was a show of big surprises and big wins as Jake Wood and Gregg Wallace also accepted the highest offer of £70,000 and £50,000 respectively.

Wood, sadly, didn’t win the prize pot, but Wallace was ecstatic as he won the money with only five seconds to spare.

As the show continued, audiences kept tweeting that they were incredibly happy Joly won the money for his charity.

“Well done Dom congrats on winning 50k for your charity #BeatTheChasers,” one said.

Another Twitter user added: “Dom has beaten the Chasers! #BeatTheChasers”.

“Dom destroyed all 5 chasers ! #BeatTheChasers,” another continued, praising his performance on the show.

Beat the Chasers: Celebrity Special airs Saturday May 29 at 8.30pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
