The Chase's Anne Hegerty Explains Why She Won't Date Mark Labbett

The Chase star Anne Hegerty has ruled out the possibility of ever dating fellow Chaser Mark Labbett after people thought she was checking her co-star out.

The pair appeared The Chasers Road Trip and in a scene where Mark is wearing a pair of swimming shorts, viewers thought there could be romance on the horizon.

Anne, 62, was quick to knock them back though saying she'd never be interested because she doesn't go for younger men.

She said: "Let's not go there, I always say we're not each other's type and I don't do younger men."

Labbett, 55, was seen getting out of the sea in Miami while they filmed for Road Trip spin-off show.

Knowing that the rumours would begin, she told The Sun: "I just looked over my shoulder at the sea and they cut in an image of Mark coming out.

"Mark was not actually doing that at that time. Editors are wicked. Producers just like to do that sort of thing. I laughed and then I rolled my eyes and thought, 'For God sake, now everyone's going to think I have a crush on Mark'."

It seems some people were able to appreciate their relationship instead of assuming they've got the hots for one another.

One person wrote: "I just love the fact @MarkLabbett and @TheShaunWallace take care of Anne in such a big brother way. It's amazing to see."

Someone else added: "Absolutely loving the chasers road trip! It's fantastic too see you guys more as normal people rather than chasers."

It seems Anne also missed Shaun Wallace's bulge... maybe she's the only one that doesn't have her mind in the gutter.

She told The Sun: "I didn't notice Shaun's budgie smugglers. I suppose I'm just used to not looking at the boys. I wasn't aware of it until everyone started pointing it out."
