The Chase viewers devastated as Joel Dommett misses out on £150k cash prize
The Chase fans have been left heartbroken after Joel Dommett lost out on garnering the biggest ever single prize pot.
The comedian was a contestant on tonight’s celebrity edition of the ITV game show, and was the only player who managed to make it through to the final chaser.
Had he won, he would have been able to take home £150,000 for a charity of his choice.
Joel was up against Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, who made him the huge offer of an eye-watering £150,000.
It was a big step up from the £4,000 Joel had won from his previous questions from host Bradley Walsh, so he decided to go for it.
Unfortunately, the 35-year-old ultimately failed to beat Jenny, after he only managed to rack up 11 tiles in the final round.
Although Joel was not able to bag the top prize, he was still able to take away £1,000 for his chosen charity, The Teenage Cancer Trust.
Despite losing, Jenny told Joel he should be proud of himself, while adding he should return to the show in future so they can face off again.
Fans on Twitter were devastated either way, with one writing: ‘Oh dear, Joel’s lost it.’
Another added: ’14 unlucky Joel you lose.’
‘Ahh, tough on your own Joel,’ a third viewer said.
However, others were still very impressed that Joel had made it this far on the show, despite not winning.
‘Incredible scenes at #TheChase HQ, where Joel Dommett took on The Vixen for £150,000,’ one wrote.
One fan weighed in: ‘Brilliant work, Joel. You don’t stand a chance in the final Chase but a fantastic head-to-head.’
‘YESSSSSSS!! Well done Joel!!’ another posted, alongside a series of clapping emoji.
The Chase Celebrity Special continues next Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
