The Chase's Anne Hegerty and Mark Labbett don't want any more Chasers to join the line-up

The Chase's Anne Hegerty and Mark Labbett don't want any more Chasers to join the line-up

The two Chasers aren't so keen on more faces joining the line-up.

When you think of The Chase, there's probably a few Chasers that immediately come to your mind.

At the moment, there are six Chasers on the show keeping members of the public on their toes.

There's Mark Labbett, also known as The Beast, and Shaun Wallace, known as The Dark Destroyer, who have been on since the first season in 2009.

Not far behind them is Anne Hegerty, or The Governess, who joined the cast in the second series.

Paul Sinha, The Sinnerman, turned the trio into a quartet in series four and five series later, Jenny Ryan, The Vixen, made her debut.

And rounding out the six is former contestant Darragh Ennis, The Menace, who recently joined The Chase family in series 13.

And, according to two of the Chasers, six is more than enough.

Anne Hegerty has said she doesn't want any other Chasers to join.

Anne and Mark both opened up to The Daily Star about why they don't want any more new faces.

Anne said: "The thing is you see that every time they add a new Chaser, we only get paid per show that we do.

"We don't get a salary, we get a fee per show we do.

"They are recording fewer shows because we've got so many shows in the can and then add another Chaser and everybody's money goes down but that said Darragh is a lovely person.

"When he appeared he certainly sent the ratings up a lot."

Mark echoed these sentiments, whilst also shedding some light on the stars appearing on Australia's version of the iconic game show.

Mark Labbett also shared a similar opinion.

He joked: "If I could get away with it I'd purge half of them because the fewer Chasers there are, the more money I get.

"We say that is because we've seen it in Australia.

"They've moved up to eight chasers and the problem is they are now in a horrible trap that they can't make a full-time living off it.

"They are spreading it so thin some of the Chasers are starting to think 'I can't do this unless you give me a certain number of shows a year'.

"We're lucky we've got extracurricular gigs in England but in Australia they've got next to nothing so I'm glad I don't have to rely on the Australian money."

So things are better in the UK over Australia? Pinch me, pigs must be flying.

In addition to his gig on The Chase, Mark pulls in a shift on Beat The Chasers, where contestants have to face all of them at once.

He even said he's earning the wage of a 'premiere league player'.

All that money and you don't have to work up a sweat on a football pitch. Not too shabby.
