Series 7 - 82. 500th Edition Special

Today’s edition of the fast-moving game show is its 500th but there’s no sign of viewers tiring of it yet. It regularly attracts an audience of around three million despite being scheduled against that other popular teatime show Pointless.

Today’s Chaser is Shaun Wallace aka the Dark Destroyer or the Barrister, who was a Mastermind champion in 2004 as well as a former contestant on almost every TV quiz show you can remember. However, it’s the genial host Bradley Walsh who makes this series such entertaining viewing. Who can ever forget his facial contortions, squeaks and tears of laughter over a question involving German skier Fanny Chmelar?

About this programme

82/150. Bradley Walsh presents the 500th edition of the game show, as four contestants pit their wits against ruthless quiz genius the Chaser in the hope of winning a potential prize pot worth thousands of pounds. They work as a team and play strategically to answer general knowledge questions against the clock and race down the game board to the exit without being caught.
