The Chase fans have been given a sneak peek of brand new Chaser, Darragh Ennis, in action.
First announced back in April, the Irishman joins the current line-up of quiz masters Mark 'The Beast' Labbett, Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty, Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan, Shaun 'The Dark Destroyer' Wallace and Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha.
In a clip uploaded to the show's official Instagram today (November 19), presenter Bradley Walsh gives Darragh a warm welcome... of sorts.
Asked what his day job is, the newcomer reveals that he's "a research scientist", before explaining a little deeper: "I'm a neuroscientist. We figure out how brains develop, how they work, how memories are formed, but at a molecular level."
He elaborated: "So we use microscopes all the time, we use spectrometers all the time."
Bradley then joked: "Welcome to the show... but BORING!"
If you're a long-standing fan, you may recognise the new addition. He's actually been on the show before as a contestant back in 2017.
Darragh tweeted his excitement earlier this year when his new role was announced.
"I'm really excited to be the 6th chaser on #TheChase. I've been working hard on this for a while now and can't wait for my episodes to air. Well the ones I win anyway," he wrote.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
