THE CHASE star Mark Labbett has hit out at ITV as he shared a major gripe he has with the show with fans.
‘The Beast’, 57, has been a staple on the quiz show since it started back in 2009.
However, he’s taken to social media to share a complaint he has with show bosses, calling it a ‘burden’.
“For many years I have taken it as a badge of honour that I get the toughest teams on #thechase. It’s becoming a burden now,” he tweeted along with a sad face.
His 160k-strong fan base were quick to reply to the star, with one hinting it was to do with his age.

“Got to be an age thing there,” they said jokingly as Mark replied and confirmed it is.
One fan used the opportunity to ask Mark how teams are judged as ‘tough’ before the filming of an episode.
Mark revealed that contestants are “tested as part of their audition” before saying: “Obviously I am not privy to that so I judge them on how they play.”
The quiz master recently shocked fans as he revealed his dramatic weight loss on television.
He was appearing on This Morning to promote his new book when fans were distracted by his slimmer appearance.
Thanks to his regular dog walks and running around after his young son, Mark has lost a whopping 10 stone.
“I am gradually dropping Xs off my size. I’ve gone from 5XL to 4XL and it looks like the next time I go shopping I’ll be able to squeeze into XL underpants,” he said previously on ITV’s Loose Women.
The Chase airs weekdays from 5pm on ITV.
