The Chase continues tonight (Friday, November 20) at 5pm on ITV and Darragh Ennis has made his appearance as the show’s latest chaser afer months of waiting. Ahead of his debut, Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about him.

Who is the new Chaser Darragh Ennis?

After five years, The Chase finally has a brand new Chaser joining the team.

Darragh Ennis will join the Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace and Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha on the ITV game show.

His Chaser name has been revealed as  Darragh ‘The Menace’ Ennis.

Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan was the last Chaser to join the show to in 2015

Announcing the news in April 2020, Ennis tweeted: “I’m really excited to be the 6th chaser on #TheChase.

Following his debut tonight, Ennis said: ““I’m so pleased to be the sixth Chaser. It’s brilliant to be on such an amazing quiz team, and so much fun working with Bradley Walsh. It’s such an exciting opportunity and I can’t wait to take on more contestants!” 

Host Bradley Walsh added: “Another Chaser? ANOTHER CHASER? That’s another person cleverer than me on The Chase. I must have words with the producers. But I can’t wait to educate Darragh on the important things in life; custard creams, cowboy films and real ale.”

Executive Producer Helen Tumbridge said: “We’ve gone from the Fantastic Five to the Sensational Six. We all think Darragh is the perfect addition to our Chase family.”

Creative Director, Potato, Martin Scott said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome a past Contestant who is now our new Chaser to the family. I’m sure he’ll take no prisoners!”

The Chase fans will most likely recognise Ennis as he is a former Chase contestant himself.

He appeared on The Chase in 2017, winning £9,000 in total during the money building round.

However, his fellow contestants decided to accept lower offers from The Chaser, taking home £1,575 each.

Ennis memorably took on the Paul ‘Sinnerman’ Sinha, who called him ‘the best player’ on the show.

Sinha even tweeted is own congratulations to Ennis at the time.

He wrote: “The night before the producers told us, Anne and Mark and I sat at dinner and pondered “Could it be a former contestant”.

“I said, “If it is, the best player I faced was an Irish guy who looked a bit like Micky Flanagan” Welcome to the club mate.”

Fellow Chaser, Mark Labbett said: “Welcome to the pros kid. If you thought you were working hard before, you ain’t seen nothing yet 🙂

“To be a winner, train like the Sinha!”

At the moment, Ennis’s nickname has not been revealed by ITV.

Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.
Outside of The Chase, Ennis is an Irish scientist, currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at Oxford University.

His Twitter bio reads: “I do science and occasionally quizzes. Send me terrible jokes.”

Fans will have to wait until Ennis makes his debut on The Chase to find out more.
