A team of four celebrities attempted to win as much money as possible for charity during Sunday’s (February 21) episode of The Chase
Giles Coren, Rachel Johnson, Chris Packham, and Josie Long all took on Chaser Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, however, Chris, unfortunately, lost in the second round.
It was up to the remaining three celeb contestants to out-run The Sinnerman in the final chase.
The team had amassed a brilliant prize fund of £45k and answered 20 questions correctly.
As the celebs looked like they were about to win the cash, Chaser Paul managed to catch them with just two seconds on the clock in a very intense final.

One person said: “#thechase what a finish.”
A second commented: “Love it when the Chaser wins with less than 5 seconds left. #TheChase.”
A third wrote: “The Chaser really didn’t have to do that #thechase.”
“Just watched the chase tonight, they paused that last 2 seconds whilst the Sinha man answered. The team robbed!”, added another.
