(Bradley Walsh)

M-Net (Channel 101) will host the new episodes return of The Chase which will be screened from Monday, February 8, 2021, at 12h10.

It’s a battle of intelligence in this British TV series that sees contestants test their minds against professional quizzer known as the "chaser" who attempts to prevent them from winning a cash prize.

The Chase is hosted by Bradley Walsh. The six chasers are Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Paul Sinha, Jenny Ryan, and Darragh Ennis.

A team of four contestants individually attempt to amass as much money as possible, which is later added to a prize fund if the contestant survives their chase. The chaser must attempt to catch each contestant during their chase, eliminating that person from the game and preventing the money from being added to the collective prize fund. In the individual chase, the player must choose between a higher offer, their earned money, and a lower offer. Later, in the final round, contestants who survived their chases play collectively as a team against the chaser for an equal share of the prize fund.

With a regular audience of three to five million, The Chase is one of ITV's most successful daytime shows ever.
