The Chase's Mark Labbett spotted a secret quizzer in the line up of contestants on the ITV show.

Mark, also known as 'The Beast' was tipped off when Kathryn, 28, a learning support officer at a college in Wales, racked up £9,000 in the cash builder - surprising her teammates and fans at home.

When confronting the chaser at the table, Kathryn was offered a low offer of £3,000 and a high offer of £50,000.

She was advised to go for the £9,000 by her fellow guest even though they thought she could get back with the £50,000 high offer.

Taking on Mark, 55, she easily made it back with her original £9,000 leading Mark to suspect she was a quizzer.
