The Chase‘s newest Chaser Darragh Ennis has revealed why he hasn’t appeared on the quiz show for a while.

After noticing his absence, fans took to Twitter to ask if Darragh had been sacked from his role.

The scientist, named The Menace, responded to the claims on his own social media.

“Sigh. I’ve not been sacked,” he wrote. “The nature of random scheduling means sometimes we don’t have a show air for a little while, and sometimes we’re on 2 or 3 times in a week.”

He added a link to the song ‘Good Things Come To Those Who Wait’. Darragh then received a number of questions from fans, including one asking why the shows were aired out of order to the episode number.

“Not my department but it can be to ensure a mix of wins and losses each week,” he wrote.

“Sometimes they move a show if a question is there about someone who e.g. died recently. But not my gig, the schedulers and producers have a very tough job tbh. Heroes all.”

He also responded to a viewer who asked if he expected to become “such a sex symbol” when he joined the show.

“Of course I did! I’ve seen mirrors,” he added.
