The Beast From The Chase Hit With Cheating Wife Claims
It has been claimed that the wife of The Chase star Mark Labbett has been cheating on him for over a year.
The Sun reported that 26-year-old Katie Labbett was doing the dirty behind The Beast's back with 28-year-old Scott Bate.
It has been claimed that Katie has even been on holiday with Scott - who posted pictures of the pair together on social media - and met his friends on nights out at local pubs.
A source who spoke to the Sun said: "Scott and Katie have been seeing each other since 2017. He introduced her to friends in December that year.
"It took a while for people to realise who she was and that she was married. Then one of Scott's friends confronted her and she got angry about it.
"She appeared on Loose Women with Mark and people started sending a clip around when they twigged who she was. People don't think it's right and think her behaviour is unfair on Mark - and Scott."
Mark, 53, and Katie got married back in 2014 and they appeared on Loose Women three years later where Katie was introduced to the nation.
According to the Sun, pictures were uploaded on to Scott's social media showing them beer tasting, in front of a waterfall and on a train.

On Valentine's Day 2018, Scott posted a snap of them together - according to the newspaper, he told a pal: "We did it a day early so it's not as busy."
The source continued: "They have been seeing each other such a long time that he sees her as his girlfriend, which is wrong.
"We think Scott should cut ties with her but he is smitten and blinded to the situation."
Yesterday the Sun on Sunday spoke to Scott - who has now removed every sign of Katie from his Facebook page - he said it was 'no surprise' that his relationship was being spoken about.
He then added: "I don't want to comment. You will have to speak to her about it."
Katie refused to answer the door when she was approached for a comment and her dad Simon told the paper: "She's not in another relationship."
Mark, a former teacher, and Katie are also second cousins who have a young son together. Both of their dads are cousins.
Speaking about their respective parents' relationship, Mark said: "It wasn't something we were aware of at the time - it was one of those things that happened."
Mark's agent declined to comment when approached by LADbible for comment.
