THE Chase viewers have been left devastated after Joel Dommett narrowly missed out on winning the show’s biggest ever single prize pot of £150k.
Joel Dommett missed out on winning the largest amount of money offered to a single player on The Chase
Joel had had to watch all three of his fellow celebrities crash out of the competition, leaving him to go it alone.
After securing £4000 in his cash builder, Jenny offered him a whopping £150,000, adding it was the highest amount ever offered to a single player in the show’s history.
Joel decided to go for it and embarked on a nail-biting game with Jenny, with the audience cheering wildly each time he got one right.
At one point, it looked like Jenny would catch him after he got an answer wrong, however The Chaser also opted for the wrong answer and he was back in the game.
