It comes as The Chase star Anne Hegerty explained her absence on season five of ITV’s Beat The Chasers.

“The Governess”, 63, will be replaced by Australian The Chase star Issa on the popular gameshow this week and he will join Jenny Ryan, Mark Labbett, Paul Sinha, Darragh Ennis and Shaun Wallace.

Discussing her absence on the show, Anne exclusively told OK! at the Pride of Manchester Awards: “Beat The Chasers is on, 9pm every night and that’s the series I wasn’t on because I got Covid. So that’s the series that’s got one of our Australian Chasers on it.”

Talking about her replacement, Issa, Anne added: “I think he’s going to be brilliant, I think you are all going to love him. He’s a smashing bloke!”

Eight-time winner of the Australian Quizzing Championships Issa, who has appeared as menacing chaser on “Down Under’s” version of the show since it first commenced in 2015, has never before starred on the UK series.

Though he may be a newbie, it is understood that the quiz guru will be tough competition for the brave contestants, as he’s also competed on The Rich List as well as Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?
