The Chase fans were floored this evening after learning a “bubbly” player’s age.
ITV’s popular quiz show sees four strangers team up and pit their wits against one of the eponymous Chasers to try and claim a jackpot worth thousands of pounds.
The Chase players must face one of the nation’s favourite quiz geniuses; Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan or new Chaser Darragh ‘the Menace’ Ennis, who each use their quizzing prowess to prevent players winning a cash prize.

Presented by Bradley Walsh, quizzing hopefuls must first endure a solo cash builder round before going head to head with a Chaser to try and win a place in the Final Chase.
Tonight, contestants Aaron, Anne, Susan and Joe went up against Paul ‘the Sinnerman’ Sinha, who Bradley Walsh described as a “quizzing genius”.
But viewers were distracted by player Susan after she revealed her age. Bradley said: “Susan’s bubbly isn’t she?”
Passionate singer and dancer Susan, who works as a pupil recruiter, is 56 years old – which left fans stunned.
Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Gareth commented: “Susan is 56!!?”
Luke said: “Susan looks good for 56, very good.”
One fan said: “Susan. You look good for 56.”
Kyle added: “Anne and Susan look younger than Aaron!”
Susan’s positive nature was a hit with Bradley Walsh and Chaser Paul Sinha.
Bradley quipped she should be a motivational speaker while Paul joked he wanted to hire her to come to his home and convince him to eat healthily.
