Bradley Walsh welcomed a host of new contestants on to The Chase this evening who were all hoping to walk away with the jackpot prize after beating the Chaser.
David, 65, Claire, 28, Cameron, 19, and Rachel, 40, joined presenter Bradley and today’s Chaser, Shaun Wallace, also known as The Dark Destroyer.
First to face the Chaser was David who left Bradley stunned when he listed off what he’s been up to since he retired.
David revealed: “Well I do some voluntary work in the food bank and I’m a school governor, I help out with that and I was a political for a while.”

Fans of the show took a liking to the retiree and took to Twitter to wish him luck.
One said: “David seems like a really great bloke #TheChase,” and another wrote: “I love you David, #TheChase.”
