The Chase viewers were completely floored during the latest instalment when they witnessed The Dark Destroyer, also known as Shaun Wallace, debut his brand new beard.

Fans have been used to seeing the chasers sporting the exact same looks over the years, with shake-ups happening very rarely.

The chasers are even forced to wear the exact same outfit for every single episode they’re on, so viewers have gotten used to seeing 61 year old Shaun showing off the same dapper suit and tie.

But in Thursday’s show (September 2), Shaun shocked everyone when he turned up sporting a grey grizzled beard on his usually clean-shaven jaw.


Immediately flocking to Twitter, fans shared their thoughts on the change in the barrister’s appearance.

“Shaun with a beard. Woof! #TheChase,” another declared.

Another exclaimed in shock: “OMG SHAUN WALLACE HAD A BEARD #TheChase.”

A third was excited the genius quizzer had opted to enter the club, saying: “Yay Shaun the Chaser has joined us beardies, and very smart he looks too #TheChase.”
