Could your family beat the Chaser? The ITV quiz show is launching a new spin-off


The Chase is set for an exciting spin-off as ITV is planning to launch a family version of the quiz show.

The programme, fronted by Bradley Walsh, has already experimented with a special celebrity edition - and soon it will also be getting a family edition, where the four people on each episode's team will all be related, instead of being complete strangers.

Producers have sent out a casting call asking for participants.

It said: "We're looking for families for a brand new series of The Chase Family Edition!

"Has your family got what it takes to beat the Chaser?

"Is Aunt Sue smarter than The Sinnerman? Is Dad man enough to bring down The Beast? Can Mum outrun the Vixen? Or could Gran measure up to the Governess?

"Bring your family together and take down a Chaser, come and have a go if you think your family are clever enough."

Producers are looking for families with members aged 16 or over.

The statement says: "It can be a combination of all relations, including but not limited to: son, daughter, aunt, uncle, cousin, mum, dad, grandparent."

The quiz show sees contestants taking it in turns to face one of the Chasers - Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Paul Sinha or Jenny Ryan - in a bid to add money to their team's fund.

Those who make it to the last round then fight for the prize money at the end.
