Beat The Chasers fans all had the same reaction after a contestant scooped the massive jackpot prize.

TV host Rick Edwards faced down all five chasers in a gripping showdown on ITV's Beat The Chasers: Celebrity Special, aiming to win big for his chosen cause. Before his appearance, several celebs had tried and failed to outsmart the chasers but Neil Delamere, Michelle Ackerley, Charlie Stayt and Danny Sebastian couldn't clinch the cash prize they were after.

With the spotlight solely on him as the last contender, Rick shouldered the immense pressure. Opting to challenge the full panel in a thrilling head-to-head, he emerged victorious with an impressive £120,000, reports the Express.
