Despite the job, which meant Bradley wouldn’t have been home, Donna encouraged him to take it on.

At the time, their son Barney was only nine years old.

Bradley added, “She’s the one who realized what it could do for me, even though it would mean being apart.”

Donna and Bradley married in 1997 and their son is now 23 years old.

Bradley has become a favorite thanks to his TV stations, especially on ITV’s The Chase.

Fans of the game show tune in every weekday evening to see what’s going on during the hour-long episode.

What has happened on The Chase so far this week?

On the Wednesday (March 3) show, Bradley was stunned when a candidate admitted to having “fantasized” in her spare time.

The hostess asked the 75-year-old player Sandra what she’s doing in retirement so far.

She said, “I watch The Chase, read books and fantasize. I am having a good time “

Bradley looked shocked when he started giggling.

However, Sandra quickly said, “I don’t fantasize about you, Bradley.”
