The Chase has The Dark Destroyer, The Beast, The Governess, The Vixen, The Menace and The Sinnerman, but soon a new Chaser will be making his debut on the UK quiz show ...

Australian-born Issa Schultz is due to step in for an unnamed Chaser who is reportedly unavailable for filming.

The 38-year-old - who is dubbed The Supernerd on the Australian version of the show - will film part of the next series, which begins recording today.

It appears to be a dream come true for Schultz, who two years ago revealed he had high hopes to appear on an overseas version of The Chase.

He told the Daily Telegraph in 2019: "I would never leave the Australian version because I love it, it would be to do in addition."

The eight-time winner of the Australian Quizzing Championships has also appeared on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and The Einstein Factor - using his smarts across a wide range of TV.

We can't wait to see him in action on New Zealand television screens.
