The Chase’s Mark Labbett melts fans’ hearts with sweet gesture for partially blind player

The Chase viewers praised the ITV show’s star Mark Labbett after spotting his kind gesture towards a partially blind contestant.

In a recent episode of the hit programme, which recently had viewers in stitches, a player called Annah from Nottingham stepped up to the challenge of beating the brainy quizzer.

And when she faced Mark in a one-on-one round in the competition, Mark ensured it was a level playing field for the pair by closing his eyes for the duration.

Viewers were quick to comment on the moment, saying they thought Mark was extremely considerate and that legal advisor Annah was one of the best players they’d seen in the history of the show.

One The Chase fan said: “Love that @MarkLabbett was keeping his eyes closed for Annah’s questions – making it a level playing field with consummate respect and integrity shown by The Beast. #TheChase ”

Another agreed, writing on Twitter: “@MarkLabbett not looking at the questions against Annah. Touch of class.”

While others commended both Mark and Annah and said it had made for a nice TV moment – especially as she helped to bag a whopping £7000 for the prize pot.

Unfortunately for Mark, it wasn’t his day as Annah and the rest of her teammates went on to storm the rounds, eventually bagging £15,000 to split between them.

After their win aired, viewers once again took to social media to praise the teams’ great efforts on the show, congratulating them and pointing out that Annah had a great run.

“Annah and Dave amazing #TheChase,” one impressed viewer wrote. Another added: “#TheChase what a day Annah.” As a third echoed their thoughts, saying: “Annah is easily their strongest player so far. #TheChase.”

This comes after The Chase host Bradley Walsh was seen celebrating as a contestant took on a record-breaking £101K on the ITV series.

In a show first, contestant Ronnie, who had banked just £1000 before becoming the last player standing, decided to take a huge gamble and opt for the staggering £101,000 offer The Beast had offered.

However, sadly after becoming the first solo player to play that round for more than £100K, Ronnie lost out to Mark and was defeated in the competition.
