First look at ITV’s new Chaser – and fans are convinced it’s a former contestant

The Chase has shared a sneak peak of the ITV gameshow’s brand-new Chaser.

It comes as eagle-eyed viewers speculate that former contestant Darragh Ennis has bagged the job.

Taking to the show’s official Instagram account on Tuesday, telly bosses teased a quick glimpse of the latest addition to the gameshow – but without giving too much away.

The short clip cleverly only showcased the mystery individual’s silhouette.

The show’s host, Bradley Walsh is present in the snippet as he quips: “Are we taking on a mystery brain box from somewhere on the planet?”

Alongside the video, the caption read: “Everyone has been asking about it, and today you got a glimpse of what is to come with a look at the new Chaser’s silhouette.

Overjoyed by the prospect of a new Chaser, fans flocked to the comments to share their thoughts on who it might be.

Many viewers have been speculating that former contestant Darragh Ennis may have bagged the highly sought-after role due to the fact he teased he would one day be a Chaser.

The Chase have not yet confirmed who the new Chaser is

One Instagram user penned: “This is so exciting. I really can’t wait to see who it is!”.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s going to be that chap Darragh. It even looks like him” another suggested.

Meanwhile, a third fan commented: “So excited to see who it is. Come on and tell us already!”.

Darragh wowed audiences back in 2017

“The wait is almost over! It’s Darragh guys!” a fourth added.

Back in 2017, Darragh wowed audiences when he battled it out against Paul Sinnerman Sinha.

A true quiz whiz, the clever contestant ended up taking home a whopping £9,000 for his team, which made him one of the most memorable guests in recent years.

Darragh, who is originally from Ireland, previously teased that he was “really excited to be the 6th chaser” on the programme.

Paul Sinha also appeared to confirm the news after he referred to Darragh as “the best player” he’s ever come across on the ITV show.

Whatever the outcome, it looks as though fans won’t have too long to wait.
