We all have our favourite Chaser on the hit TV show The Chase ... but who actually has the best record?

Thanks to the One Question Shoot fansite, the numbers are in and you may be surprised by the results.

Analysing success rates and the number of questions answered per minute in more than 1,800 episodes and 13 years since the show began, the quiz show newbie Darragh Ennis - aka 'The Menace' - is the best chaser of the six with an overall 80 per cent winning streak.

However, he has only appeared in 40 episodes to date.

Hot on his heels is veteran Anne Hegerty, who has maintained an overall 79.7 per cent winning streak from 424 episodes.

The 64-year-old also has the highest amount of clean sweeps, which is when a Chaser manages to not get a question wrong in the Final Chase.

Hegerty can answer an average of 21.55 questions in two minutes - which is why she's so tough to beat when it comes down to that final chase.

But her colleagues aren't far behind her; Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan is only 1.3 per cent behind 'The Governess' in her winning streak.

Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha comes in third place on the leaderboard, followed by Mark Labbett, known on the show as 'The Beast'.

Meanwhile, Shaun 'The Dark Destroyer' Wallace is at the bottom of the ladder, with an average of 69.4%.

He can answer an average of 19.45 questions in two minutes, while the others can bank at least 21 in the same time.

So what can we take away from this?

Well, if you ever end up on The Chase, pray that you meet the Dark Destroyer.
