The Chase returned to our screens on Wednesday for the latest instalment of the ITV quiz show.

Host Bradley Walsh welcomed four new contestants to the show today for the second episode of the week.

The cheeky presenter was eager to see them get through to the final with some money in-hand.

Mark "The Beast" Labbett was in the hot seat trying to prevent the hopefuls from going home with the cash prize.

Elizabeth, Alec, Frances and Richard all took it in turns to take on the cash builder and later went head-to-head with The Beast in an intense round of general knowledge questions.

Viewers were distracted from the tough quiz show as they noticed something wrong with Bradley, 60.

Bradley has reportedly signed a whopping deal that will see him boost his earnings by a staggering £2million.

The eye-watering deal sees him become the UK’s second highest paid presenter behind broadcasting duo, Ant and Dec.

Walsh surpassed a range of top household names to land a new role as the host of Blankety Blank. The move saw him stave off rivals including Graham Norton and Phillip Schofield.

A source close to Walsh told The Sun: "Bradley regularly polls internally as one of ITV’s most liked stars.

"Viewers adore him, and he can turn his hand to pretty much any form of broadcasting."

"When it comes to taking on new work, he can basically name his price."

Alongside his new role, Walsh will continue to host ITV’s The Chase, a new Prime Time show alongside Holly Willoughby and a new series of his hit show Breaking Dad.

The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm
