It's something The Chase fans rarely see ...

On yesterday's episode of the much-loved quiz show, viewers were left stunned after a 20-year-old made history when he became the show's biggest ever solo winner, taking home a whopping £75,000!

Eden beat Chaser Darragh Ennis in one of the most intense rounds of quizzing we have ever seen - bringing an end to The Menace's six-month winning streak.

Following the exciting win, host Bradley Walsh rushed to congratulate the humble contestant, exclaiming: "Seventy-five grand. Twenty years of age. Who's your best mate?

"I can't believe it! This is incredible, he's 20 years old and just won £75,000! It's the single highest win in daytime history!"

Ennis was also gracious in defeat, telling Eden: "What a show. Absolutely brilliantly played, Eden."
