wants to stay hosting for as long as possible – so do we!

The quiz show, which began in 2009, involves contestants facing professional quizzers on, and an integral part of the much-loved series is host Bradley’s rapport with both the hopefuls and the Chasers.

Mark, who is referred to as ‘The Beast’ on The Chase, likes having Bradley on set so always wants to ensure he is healthy for the 150-200 episodes they film each year.

‘Our biggest worry is Bradley being 63 now. Every month, we’re going, “You okay, Brad? How’s the health?” Wrap him in bubble wrap!’ Mark, 58, shared.

The pair are also busy with Beat The Chasers where Mark joins forces with his fellow quizzers.

Their wealth of knowledge can sometimes have viewers baffled, but Mark insists they’re just really very good at what they do.

‘We do have people say, “They give you the answers though, right?”

‘I always point out that we’re all international quizzers, I mean, Anne is a two-time work ladies champion.

‘They think you can’t be that good and the answer is we are,’ he concluded in a mic drop moment.
