Chase spin-off series Beat The Chasers is back for a new series, but if you’re wondering how to apply for either of the two shows, the process is surprisingly simple.
While The Chase airs at 5 p.m. every weekday, its sister show has so far only aired in limited numbers.
But it is proving to be an equally huge hit with fans of the original ITV quiz show.
How do I apply to The Chase and Beat The Chasers?
Applications for Beat The Chasers are currently closed, but according to the ITV website you can still apply for the main show.
The process begins with an application form available Here.

The website states that ITV continues to accept applications for Series 14, which is currently on the air.
Who can be on the hunt?
There are several boxes that you need to tick in order to qualify for The Chase. It is likely that the same rules apply to Beat The Chasers when opening applications.
First, you must be over 18 years of age.
Applicants must also be legally resident in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man, and currently live in one of these areas.
How will you hold up against our famous five, can you beat them?
You cannot be an employee of ITV or companies in the same group, or a previous employee who has worked for one of the companies for the past 10 years.
Finally, ITV does not accept applicants who are partners or relatives of an ITV or ITV group company.
The website asks, “How are you going to hold your own against our famous five, can you beat them and go home with an equal portion of the money, or will the persecutors rule?”
Who are the chasers on The Chase and Beat The Chasers?
There are currently six pursuers on the main show. There were five quizzes on the lineup for years – Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace, Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, and Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty.

However, ITV hired a sixth chaser, Darragh ‘The Menace’ Ennis, last year. It was on the program for the first time in November.
Irishman Darragh is not currently on Beat The Chasers, which turns the format of the main show upside down and a single contestant competes against two or more of the quiz players.
