Beat the Chasers’ Darragh Ennis takes ‘evil’ swipe at Anne Hegarty for missing show – but she has the last laugh


BEAT the Chasers star Darragh Ennis took an “evil” swipe at missing Chaser Anne Hegarty during its latest episode.

Thursday’s evening’s instalment of the ITV game show saw The Governess continue her absence after testing positive for coronavirus.

Addressing her absence at the beginning of the episode, host Bradley Walsh said: “Still no Anne.”

The quizzer was soon on the receiving end of jokes from her cheeky co-stars.

Comparing her absence to Disney villain Cruella De Vil, Paul Sinha added: “We don’t know where she is.

“Our only clue is her 101 Dalamations have gone missing as well.”

Keen to add further fuel to the fire, Darragh compared Anne to horror legends such as Candyman and Bloody Mary.

He said: “It doesn’t matter, Brad. We can get her back whenever we want.

“You just look in a mirror and say her name three times.”

The gag went down well with fans on Twitter, with one viewer commenting: “Candy Anne, Candy Anne, Candy Anne.”

And Anne herself also clapped back at the comments.

Sharing her own opinion on Darragh and Paul’s digs in a tweet, Anne wrote: “My colleagues are evil.”

It appeared Anne hadn’t taken her co-stars comments to heart however, as she followed up her tweet with a laughing face emoji.

Following her absence, Anne was swiftly replaced by Australian Chaser Issa Schultz.

Anne recently shed light on who she believes is the best chaser on the popular quiz show and why she believe’s it’s not her.

Appearing at the MEN Pride of Manchester awards earlier this month, Anne revealed: “It’s not me, Paul is the best – well Paul is the best quizzer.

“But Paul and Mark are both the fastest – so it would be out of them.”
