The Chase: Bradley Walsh teases Mark Labbett after mistake
Mark Labbett has indirectly sent out a warning to Beat The Chasers players. The Chase favourite has revealed how lockdown has helped him prepare for the return of the spin-off series.
I feel about 10 years younger as a Chaser
The 55-year-old and his fellow Chasers will once again join forces in the hope of triumphing over members of the public.
Beat The Chasers was huge hit when it first aired back in April last year, over five consecutive days.
The second series will kick off tonight, after being filmed just two months ago.
Mark – otherwise known as The Beast – has said he has been practising being quicker on the buzzer.

When asked how the pandemic has provided him with the time to train, the TV star said he was “back” to his best.
He commented: “I’ve been able to get a lot more practice on the buzzer. I’ve got my speed back up.
“I feel about 10 years younger as a Chaser – a lot sharper.”
He will once again work alongside Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace and Jenny ‘’The Vixen’ Ryan.
Mark went on to reveal that the Chasers have approached this season differently, after “refining our strategy”.
He explained: “For example, both Paul and I have been training for months on the buzzer as we realised this is like feeding time at the zoo.
“If you’re not quick enough you don’t get the points. Obviously, if you know the answer, hit the button.”
He continued: “But it’s what to do if you sort of know. Generally the rule is we try and leave it to the person whose specialty it is to confirm it.

“That’s the art form of guessing/knowing and who/when should hit the buzzer.”
However, Mark said “sometimes we get it wrong”.
He added: “For us, the cardinal sin in this situation is to buzz in and then think of the answer.
“While you’re having a nice long think, your teammates know the answer.”
The team previously remarked on each of the stars’ strongest subjects, with Shaun, 60, branding Paul “an all-rounder”.
He said Mark was “very quick”, while Paul agreed with his statment: “I think it’s established that Mark and I are quite likely to answer questions as quick as humanly possible.”
The 50-year-old claimed Jenny, 38, got the “difficult entertainment questions”, and Anne, 62, was the go-to for art and literature.
Beat The Chasers returns to ITV tonight at 9pm.
