ITV gameshow The Chase has recently added a new face to its roster of experts, with host Bradley Walsh already cracking jokes.

The programme, which sees members of the public pitted against some of the country’s biggest quizzing pros, has been on our screen for years.

Although there’s prize money up for grabs, it’s usually difficult for contestants to beat the Chasers at trivia.

So, who is the newest member of The Chasers?

Who is The Menace on The Chase?

ITV have unveiled a new expert on The Chase – Darragh ‘The Menace’ Ennis.

A 40 year-old Oxford-based scientist originally from Dublin, the snappy dresser has already excited fans.

He joins Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace, Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty and Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha on the show.

He originally appeared as a contestant on the show, but is now one of the boffins battling the public.

Speaking about his first episode, Ennis said: ‘It was really great. I was really looking forward to doing the job. I just wanted to get out there and get started.’

He’s also been honest about his specialisms on the show, saying ‘My best subject is history (my mother is a history teacher).

‘My worst subject, other than cricket, is popular culture. I stopped paying attention to music around 2005. I’m really bad on Number 1s and albums.’

Something to consider if you’re thinking of applying to be on the gameshow.

He also commented on his relationship with the other Chasers, describing it as competitive but supportive.

‘They were all super encouraging afterwards when I spoke to them. They were really congratulatory. They said very well done.’

The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm.
