There could be trouble brewing over in the studios of the hit TV game show ‘The Chase’.
The UK show has developed a cult following in recent years and earlier this month a new ‘Chaser’ was introduced to the show. ‘The Menace’ became the first former contestant to join the show, but veteran ‘Chaser’ Anne Hegarty AKA The Governess isn’t too happy with the appointment.
"This is a tricky one," she said in a recent interview. "A lot of the public imagine that we are on the same sort of deal that Hollywood stars were in the 1930s. They got paid a salary per month, per year, they were salaried employees at the studio, and the studio would find them things to do.”
"That isn't how it works, the chasers and Bradley Walsh, we get paid a flat fee for every show that we do. So any show that I am doing is a show I am paid for, and the other chasers aren't, and that applies to all of us. If you are going to divide the shows between six, rather than five, do the maths."
Lucky the Chasers rarely meet face to face on the show - for now, it’s still the contestants who should fear The Governess the most!
