Beat The Chasers contestant Kat Glennie-Soares pulled off the impossible on Monday night after defeating all five quizzers on the ITV game show.

The Essex-based accountant scooped £50,000, despite only initially banking £1,000.

Kat partly credits a certain Britain’s Got Talent judge for helping her land the windfall.

She said: "I don’t remember any of the questions now, although I do remember the Alesha Dixon question as that was strange – there’s some element of fate always in it.

"Twice before on the car journey to the studio Alesha Dixon came up."

Host Bradley Walsh welcomed Kat to the studio and was eager to see her go home with some money in-hand.

Kat got off to a tricky start and only managed to answer one question correctly in the cash builder round.

After earning just £1,000 she decided to go big and took on Anne Hegerty, Jenny Ryan, Sean Wallace, Mark Labbett and Paul Sinha in a head-to-head round.

During the tense 60 seconds, Bradley asked: "Which Britain's Got Talent judge's debut single was called Lipstick."

Kat correctly answered: "Alesha Dixon".

The Mis-Teeq band member and Strictly Come Dancing champion, 42, released Lipstick back in 2006 as part of her firs solo album Fired Up.

Despite being told she had "no chance" by The Beast, Kat managed to beat the quizzers in an dramatic showdown.

Viewers at home were delighted to see Kat win and go home with a whooping £50,000 for her wedding.

Presenter Bradley, 60, offered an emotional Kat his handkerchief for her tears as she was overwhelmed with emotion.

All five chasers got off their seat and applauded the contestant.
