THE Chase has shared a first look at the new Chaser after ex contestant Darragh Ennis teased it was him.

Taking to its official Instagram account, The Chase shared a short clip of the new quizzer, but all we can see is a silhouette of a mystery person.

They teased: "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."

But the popular ITV gameshow have kept fans guessing, writing: "You're going to want to keep watching future episodes to find out more."

The video also shows host Bradley Walsh teasing viewers and contestants with the new quizzer as he can be heard saying: "Are we taking on a mystery brain box from somewhere on the planet?"

A number of fans were thrilled with the new clip, with one writing: "The wait is almost over!"

Another posted: "When is the new Chaser going to appear on the Chase, I can't wait."

A third wrote: "OMG a new chaser, I like that."

Another fan added: "How cool can't wait to see Darragh in action."

Darragh appeared on The Chase as a contestant in March 2017, where he successfully took on Paul ‘Sinnerman’ Sinha.

He won £9000 for his team during the money building round, but the other team members took the lower offers from the Chaser.

A number of fans flocked to social media to support the smart contestant after the other contestants let him down – leading to the hashtag #JusticeForDarragh to trend on Twitter.

The Irish scientist previously teased his Twitter followers that he was “really excited to be the 6th chaser” on the programme.

In April the former contestant wrote: “I’ve been working hard on this for a while now and can’t wait for my episodes to air. Well the ones I win anyway.”

The researcher’s Twitter bio, also boasts of his new Chaser status, it says: “I do science and occasionally quizzes."

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

He wrote: "The night before they producers told us, Anne and Mark and I sat at dinner and pondered "Could it be a former contestant".

"I said, "If it is, the best player I faced was an Irish guy who looked a bit like Micky Flanagan" Welcome to the club mate."

However, at the time ITV didn’t confirm on whether the rumours were true.

The new addition will be the first Chaser since Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan joined the show in 2015.
