Irish quizzer Darragh Ennis detailed how he made the most “stupid comment of his entire life” when filming Beat The Chasers. Despite the scientist pleading with producers to edit the comment out of the episode, he claimed they refused his requests and left it in the final edit.

The 40-year-old researcher and scientist joined the British version of The Chase in November 2020 after first appearing on the ITV show as a contestant in 2017.
Darragh is known for being quick to answer tough questions, but during Thursday’s National Television Awards, he admitted he said a ridiculous comment which was kept in a season three episode of Beat The Chasers.
“I said the most stupid thing of my entire life on camera and I asked them to edit out but they didn’t,” he told the Daily Star.
However, it was clear Darragh didn’t want to give too much away about his remark ahead of the new series of Beat The Chasers airing.

When asked what it was like filming with the cast, Chaser Jenny Ryan said: “It’s like herding cats. [That’s] kind of what it’s like, but very brainy cats.”
Chaser Shaun Wallace chimed in to add: “If we get questions wrong then Jenny gets us all with boxing gloves and goes whack!”
During this year’s National Television Awards, Beat The Chasers took home the award for Best Quiz Game Show.
The ITV quiz show knocked out competition from Celebrity Catchphrase, In For A Penny, and Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel.

Chaser Anne Hegerty explained the perfect way to celebrate the occasion was by going home after the ceremony and reading a good book.
This year’s National Television Awards were the first Darragh was able to attend as part of The Chase’s team.
Chaser Mark Labbett, better known as ‘The Beast’, offered Darragh some words of wisdom ahead of the red carpet event.
Mark tweeted Darragh saying: “Enjoy your first #NTAwards and don’t get between our producer and the mic if we win.”

Darragh cheekily responded: “If you couldn’t stop them what chance do I have?”
Mark added: “Find the potato SkyBox. If we win, the booze will be flowing.”
Mark was unable to attend the awards on Thursday night and he took to Twitter to explain his absence.
In a tongue-in-cheek way, Mark blamed his co-star Anne for being too much of a bad influence on him.

He tweeted: “Sorry I won’t be at the NTAs tonight.
“I am having a quiet night in, my liver cannot cope with drinking at @anne_hegerty pace.”
Anne replied to Mark’s cheeky jibe with a laughing emoji and attended the show with her co-stars.
Beat The Chasers returns to ITV for a brand new series on Saturday, September 11.
