The Chase's Mark Labbett isn't called "The Beast" for nothing!

While he's usually the unstoppable quiz titan on the hit series, the 54-year-old chaser lost his cool after being defeated by contestants Ian and Lynn, who won £30,000 in the final chase.

As host Bradley Walsh attempted to address the mistakes The Beast had made, viewers were left shocked as the brainy quiz master got up from the Chasers table and stormed off set.

On his way out of the studio, he could also be seen punching a wall.

Unable to contain his laughter, Bradley erupted into giggles and whispered: "Oops, think he's upset."

He then turned round to speak to Mark, only to see the empty seat and joked: "Oh, you're not there.

"Wow, he's furious... And for those of you who think it's all part of the show, it's not.

"He actually is furious and has stormed off."  

The last time Labbett lost his temper and smashed up the ITV show's set was in September 2019 and December 2016.

Better luck next time, Mark.
