Darragh Ennis leaves Chase player with head in hands after explicit ‘hand gesture’ joke


    Darragh ‘The Menace’ Ennis was tasked with facing off against a new team of The Chase contestants on Friday afternoon. With ITV regular Bradley Walsh on hand to provide the brainteasers, the likes of Jenny, Adrian, Michael and Dot all hoped they had the general knowledge skills to see off the Chaser and head home with some serious cash.

    However, the team didn’t exactly get off to the best of starts when the first player Jenny went home early.

    After a respectable cash-builder that saw her rack up £6,000, Jenny couldn’t replicate her success in her head to head with Darragh.

    Adrian was second up to try and get some money in the prize fund and kickstart the team’s efforts.

    And things looked to be on the up as he managed to outdo Jenny’s efforts in the cash-builder and answer seven questions correctly.

    Moments after his cash-builder, Darragh emerged from backstage to take him on.

    However, as he took his seat, he spotted the chance for a tongue in cheek joke about Adrian’s job as a sign language interpreter.

    Taking aim at Bradley, Darragh quipped to Adrian: “Now I would get you to sign some of Brad’s jokes…

    “But those kinds of hand signals aren’t allowed on daytime TV.”

    In the end, Adrian became the first player through to the Final Chase with the £7,000 he’d earned.

    And not long after, Michael did the same and added £6,000 to the prize fund.

    With a team of two and a prize fund of £13,000 to play for, Dot was the final player up to see if it could be a team of three in the final round.

    Dot racked up £5,000 in her cash-builder and despite being tempted by Darragh’s high offer of £47,000, she stood firm.

    And just like Michael and Adrian, Dot managed to make it back to the Final Chase with the £5,000 – taking the total prize fund to £18,000.

    In the Final Chase, Adrian, Michael and Dot set the Chaser a target of 20 to hit in his two-minute time frame.

    And in an incredibly tense last round, Darragh caught the team with one second remaining.

    The Chase continues weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
