A contestant on The Chase has become the show’s biggest-ever winner after bagging a £70,000 prize pot.
Player Judith even earned a standing ovation from her opponent The Vixen as she set the record on Friday’s edition of the ITV quiz show.
After an impressive game, Judith left the quiz expert - real name Jenny Ryan - with just one second to answer the remaining ten questions in the final round.
Obviously unable to do so, Jenny was highly impressed at her competitor’s general knowledge.
WOW. We are in shock. 😮@jenlion took out the rest of her team, but Judith played an INCREDIBLE game. What an exceptional performance. 🏆🎉— The Chase (@ITVChase) February 8, 2019
Don't forget #TheChase is on tomorrow at 2:40 PM on @ITV and @WeAreSTV. Have a lovely weekend! 📺 pic.twitter.com/cgWbRxdC1h
Getting on her feet, The Vixen said: “Wow, what a high-class quizzer Judith is. She killed me on the push-backs.
“I have never done this before but I have to give you a standing ovation. That was incredible.”
Host Bradley Walsh also described Judith’s win as “extraordinary”, adding: “I’ve never known anything like it. And I’ve been doing this show 60 or 70 years!”
After the show aired, Jenny took to social media to once again praise Judith.
She wrote on Twitter: “ALL HAIL JUDITH! If I remember correctly, Judith was a standby contestant, and only found out she was on the show 24 hours before recording. I was well and truly beaten. #TheChase.
“Then capitalised on my errors by nailing pushbacks - which further put the time pressure on me, leading to more errors. #TheChase.
She added: “It would be a very boring show if us Chasers won every time! We actually love it when great quizzers get on the show, we love a challenge! #TheChase.”

Absolute perfect play by Judith. £70k at table with nothing to lose. She set a very strong 20, which forced me to rush slightly. Then capitalised on my errors by nailing pushbacks - which further put the time pressure on me, leading to more errors. #TheChase https://t.co/sXxCqM9F3a— Jenny Ryan (@jenlion) February 8, 2019
Judith isn’t the only impressive player to appear on The Chase of late, though.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
