Full Roster of Celebrities for ITV’s “The Chase”

Later this year, the celebrities will be standing before one of the UK’s brightest quizzers to potentially take home tens of thousands of pounds.  ITV has ordered another eight primetime episodes of The Chase.  In each special, four popular UK personalities will face off against one of the Chasers.  Each will face off individually against either Mark Labbett, Anne Hegerty, Shaun Wallace, or Paul Sinha to bring big money back to the team’s bank.  After all have gone the surviving members will face off against The Chaser one final time in “The Final Chase” where it’s all-or-nothing to evenly split the bank.

The newest series, the third celebrity series overall, recently finished recording.  We’ve received a list of celebrities taking part.  The teams competing on The Chase include…

*Arlene Phillips CBE, Diarmuid Gavin, Helen Skelton, and Micky Flanigan
*Eric Bristow, Nadine Dorries, Sammy Winward, Ed Byrne
*Dr. Hillary Jones, Tina Malone, Charlotte Jackson, Jon Culshaw
*Kim Woodburn, Alastair Stewart, Natasha Hamilton, Keith Chegwin
*Jim Moir, Jenni Falconer, Michael Buerk, Francine Lewis
*Anton Du Beke, Diane Abbott, Matt Le Tissier, Denise Van Outen
*Jason Gardiner, Ashley Roberts, Linda Robson, Christopher Biggins
*Russell Grant, Liz McClarnon, Sherrie Hewston, Des O’Connor CBE

The show will largely remain the same from previous celebrity editions.  Once official air dates are confirmed we’ll, of course, let you know.  Is there anyone you’re looking forward to, in particular?

    I wonder if they can ever get Noel Edmonds to compete as a celebrity in one of these game-shows.

  • James E. Parten says:

    Des O’Connor was plumped for stardom here in the late 1960′s and early 1970′s. He had a “summer replacement” variety series. Some of his (UK) Columbia recordings were released here on Capitol: no hits.

    And yes, he hosted “Countdown” in 2007 and 2008, replacing Des Lynam, and being replaced by Jeff Stelling. At least one example of his work in this field can be found on YouTube (q. v.)

    Also visible on YouTube is some of the work of Keith Chegwin–especially something called “Cheggers Goes Pop”, which goes ‘way, ‘way back!

    Certainly with your believed.Thank you for your sharing.

  • Michael says:

    I would love to see Jeremy Paxman on a show like this

  • Philip says:

    This is just to let you know that the new episodes of Celebrity chase will begin in the UK on 5 October. The strange thing is that there are not 8 episodes but 11 episodes in this series. what else is odd that they are filming 6 more episodes starting today but that would make 14. I guess one will be a Text Santa episode like they had last year but I am curious about the other 2.
