Last year, The Chase fans received the exciting news that Bradley Walsh, Anne Hegerty and her fellow famous Chasers were going to be starring in a new spin-off show!

And now we've had our first look at brand the new series, Beat The Chasers.

Along with Hegerty, Mark 'The Beast' Labbett, Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha, Shaun 'The Dark Destroyer' Wallace and Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan have all united for the five-part series, which sees brave contestants taking on all the brainiacs at once to win a huge cash prize.

Releasing the trailer for the show, ITV describes it as "a brand new prime-time spin on the smash-hit quiz show The Chase, challenging contestants to take on two, three, four or all five Chasers at once."

Set to make its debut in the UK on April 27, Walsh described the new show as the "daytime show, but in reverse" format.

Contestants will be called down from the studio audience to take part in a Cash Builder round, where they'll face five multiple-choice questions to win up to £5,000.

But there's a catch; if they answer the first question wrong, they're out and their time on the show is over.

The hopefuls will then face off against the chasers, deciding between various offers, such as facing fewer chasers for less money and vice versa.

Previously speaking out about the new show, Bradley said: "The contestants are brave facing one Chaser, let alone all five. With that group of top quizzing brains working as a team, it's going to take some beating. But I can't wait to see who's going to take them on."

While Michael Kelpie, Managing Director of production company Potato, said: "For quiz fans, this is the equivalent of competing in the Olympics or playing in an FA Cup Final. It's the ultimate challenge against the greatest quiz team ever assembled.

"In this brand-new format, anyone who thinks they're clever enough can take on the nation's favourite quizzers."

Hopefully, it comes to New Zealand television screens too!
