Bradley Walsh returned to ITV for a new episode of The Chase as four contestants battled it out with Anne Hegerty for their chance to take home the jackpot prize. Contestant Hannah left Bradley astounded with her performance as The Chase viewers took to Twitter to call on her to become the next Chaser. 

Martin was the first contestant up to face the Chaser after earning £2,000 in his cash builder round.

The contestant was beaten by Anne but the next player, Ian, luckily added £7,000 to the jackpot prize fund.

It was then Hannah’s turn, who revealed she was a civil servant when introduced by Bradley. 

“Oh you’re young to be a spy,” the presenter joked. “They start them early.”

“I graduated last year from Exeter with a degree in English and Spanish,” she continued. 

“I play netball recreationally [I’m] average [and it’s] probably just as well I stay active because I’m really into my baking and cooking.”

“If I won a bit of money I’d like to go back to Spain where I was for my year abroad see my old students again and eat my body weight in tapas,” she revealed. 

“If I won a bit extra I’d like to take my dad to Australia. I wart last year he’s never been and I came back with all these wonderful stories making him very jealous so I’d like to take him there.”

Hannah earned £9,000 in her cash builder and Bradley was amazed by her performance. 

“Wow,” Bradley said. “That’s really good for such a young player, right Ian?”

“Fantastic,” he agreed and the host added: “Seriously, you’ve got to be thrilled by that.” 

Ian and Vickie encouraged her to stick with the £9,000 she had earned which she did.

The contestant made it through to the final and would have had two chances to make it through had she taken the higher offer. 

“Hannah well done, good for you absolutely great job you’re through to the final,” Bradley remarked. 

ITV viewers were very impressed with the civil servant’s performance and called for her to be the next Chaser.

One tweeted: “#thechase Hannah could a future Chaser?”

“Hannah could easily be a future Chaser, she is superb #TheChase,” another said.

A third wrote: “Hannah on #TheChase should be a new chaser!”

Someone else said: “#TheChase Hannah is brilliant, she’ll be excellent in the final.”

“Loving Hannah on the #TheChase she knows her stuff,” a fifth added.

However, others felt her performance wasn’t enough to earn her a permanent spot on the ITV show. 

One wrote: “Hannah is quite good on a quiz show. Why do people think ‘she should be the next Chaser?’ Seriously, if someone gets more than five questions right people start screaming ‘next chaser’ WHY?????? #TheChase.”

“A one-off performance on #TheChase doesn’t give automatic rights to be a Chaser,” another remarked. 

Unfortunately, finalists Ian and Hannah were unable to beat Anne and missed out on taking home their share of £16,000.

The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm.
