The Chase star Shaun Wallace, 61, offered some kind words to Anne Hegerty’s replacement Issa Schultz, 38, who took the reins on the ITV spin-off show Beat The Chasers. It comes after The Governess was forced to miss filming.
The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star had to swerve filming alongside her fellow Chasers Mark Labbett, Jenny Ryan, Paul Sinha, Darragh Ennis, and Shaun as she took to Twitter to reveal who would be replacing her.
She announced that quiz champion Issa will join the regular Chasers to take on their opponents.
Taking to Twitter yesterday, Shaun – otherwise known as The Dark Destroyer – bid farewell to the quizzer as they wrapped up filming the show.
It comes after he shared a selfie of the duo on March 18 on the micro-blogging site.

She wrote: “Unfortunately I’ve contracted Covid-19 so won’t be filming this series of #BeatTheChasers.
“The fantastic @Issa25 will be stepping in for me and I’m looking forward to watching the series when it’s on air later this year. I feel fine, but I’m still positive! (in all respects)”.
Issa is an Australian quiz show champion and TV personality.
He is best known Down Under for his regular appearances on Australia’s version of The Chase, which airs on the Seven network, where he made his debut in 2015.
