The Chase's Mark 'The Beast' Labbett Punches Wall And Storms Off After Loss
Labbett, also known to viewers as 'The Beast', suffered a loss last week all thanks to a few silly mistakes when he gave the wrong answers to a series of questions that he actually knew.
The 54-year-old was up against two contestants - Ian and Lynn - for the final head-to-head where he was trying to reach their benchmark of 16 correct answers.
He failed to beat them and, after watching the pair celebrate with a quick embrace, he told them: "Well played team, you deserve it," before getting up from his seat with a growl.
He walked off and could been seen bashing his fist into the set wall - to which the show's host, Bradley Walsh, commented: "Ooops, I think he's a little bit upset. He's furious.
"For those of you who think it's all part of the show, it isn't. He is furious - and has stormed off."
Fans of the show took to Twitter with one saying: "Mark Labbett storming off on #TheChase and punching a wall because he's absolutely s**gged himself in the final chase! You love to see it!"
Mark Labbett at sixes and sevens on #TheChase this evening, well played Ian and Lynn, what an epic encounter.

Another added: "That set is being held together with duct tape, superglue and Blu-Tack - it can't take another hit!"

Someone else wrote: "Would be brilliant if all 4 contestants took back the high offers and beat the Chaser Mark Labbett the Beast, Mark would prob punch down the studio."
This is just another reason why people love The Chase - so much so that a poll of 40,000 people named it the UK's favourite game show.
Before the results were in, a number of small screen staples went head-to-head in the Battle of the Game Shows poll, with the first round in the quarter finals seeing Tipping Point going up against The Weakest Link - the latter proved to be... well, the weakest link.
Next up was The Chase vs Who Wants to be a Millionaire - and we all know how that turned out.
The next stage of the competition had Deal or No Deal up against Catchphrase, with the latter bagging the spot in the semi-finals - sorry Noel, it was a 'no deal' from the public.
And last but not least, Pointless beat Countdown to make the final four.
The semis had just as many voters offering their opinions, as Tipping Point was up against Catchphrase, followed by The Chase vs Pointless.
The results left Tipping Point vs The Chase in the final - and of course the latter took home the gold.
