The Chase contestant shocks fans by revealing he FAINTED backstage before taking on The Dark Destroyer

On Thursday night’s edition of the popular ITV game show, a contestant named Matt Sole appeared to sail through his round and bank £4,000 for his team.

However it seemed the general knowledge hopeful was more anxious than he appeared on screen.

Taking to Twitter as his episode finally aired, the travel expert from Leicester revealed he almost didn’t make it onto the show at all.

“Little fact for you – I fainted in the dressing room ten minutes before going into the studio!” he wrote – to the amazement of fans.

It even seemed Matt was anxious to watch his performance on screen as he saw himself being closely matched on the show by chaser The Dark Destroyer (aka 58-year-old Shaun Wallace).

“I’m cutting it close here!” the contestant tweeted as he watched himself keeping just one step ahead of Shaun on the TV.




His nerves were perhaps obvious to some – as one twitter user remarked: “Matt keeps gulping.Hold it together man.”

However Matt was successful in his round – and went on to help his teammates scoop an overall total of £45,000 when they won the final round.

Meanwhile a second male contestant raised eyebrows for a number of reasons as he took on The Chaser.

Fishmonger Ryan Caston attracted attention from viewers who admired his handsome appearance – with some even comparing him to celebrity look-a-likes.

“Charlie Puth/George Ezra up next #TheChase,” one fan wrote – with another (and many others) also comparing Ryan to British chart topper George Ezra.

Others were simply struck by his good looks.






“WHo is that blonde beauty on #TheChase,” one impressed viewer gasped – while another tweeted: “How cute is Ryan on #TheChase ☺️☺️☺️ he cannot be sent home, he’s bloody lush I tell you.”

When Ryan revealed the name of his food blog – which he writes in his spare time – viewers found themselves howling with laughter.

“Fella on the chase has a food blog called PrawnHub, this show man. Gift that keeps on giving,” one Twitter wrote.

“The guy on the chase just said (with pride) that he has a food blog called prawn hub lmao I’m done,” wrote another.
