Any Australian who has been near a TV around 5pm on a weekday has probably caught an episode of The Chase at some point in their life. Based on the UK quiz show of the same name, the series sees everyday Australians go head-to-head with a quizmaster known as The Chaser.
While we do have our own Aussie Chasers, some of the UK favourites, including Mark Labbett, travel to Australia to appear on the local version of the show. Better known as “The Beast”, Labbett is arguably one of the biggest stars.
In news that could shock fans, the 52-year-old quizmaster has revealed that he’s living with a serious health condition. In a recent appearance on British chat show Loose Women, the iconic TV star revealed that he’s been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
