The Chaser, 53, previously took part in the BBC’s highbrow quiz competition Only Connect, winning the series with his team, the Rugby Boys, in 2009. Earlier this week, the grand final of the current series aired, with the Time Ladies going up against the Dicers. Noticing a potential first for quiz programmes, The Chase favourite Mark Labbett took to Twitter to share his discovery ahead of the episode. “If Time Ladies win according to my research this will be the first time on British TV that a majority female team wins a prestige quiz,” he told his 110,000 followers.

However, the all-female Time Ladies were not in luck for making British quiz show history that day.

Already trailing by seven points before the start of the final round, the missing vowels round, things stayed much the same, the Dicers emerging victorious on 20 points and the Time Ladies finishing on 13.

Elsewhere, Mark has appeared on several brain-testing programmes prior to landing his role on ITV’s The Chase.

In 1999, he appeared on Mastermind, with the Olympic Games as his specialist subject.

The following year, he joined the show again, this time specialising in The Simpsons.

In addition, he has taken part in Countdown and Channel 5’s BrainTeaser, where he won £500 in 2004.
