Paul Sinha to miss third season of Beat The Chasers due to illness
The show has been a huge success for ITV.
The Chase's popular spin-off Beat The Chasers will return for a third season of the show, with not one but two celebrity specials.
However, it will do so without the services of chaser Paul Sinha who was forced to miss this season due to illness.
Writing on Twitter, The Sinnerman confirmed that he wasn't well for filming and would not be part of the show this time around.
"New episodes of Beat the Chasers are on their way," he wrote.
"Unfortunately, I wasn't well for the recordings and couldn't join in this time around. I'm feeling much better now."

Beat The Chasers is a spin-off of the hugely popular quiz show The Chase. Hosted by Bradley Walsh, it sees contestants choosing how many chasers they want to face in return for playing for greater sums of money.
Contestants start with a cash builder round before facing a series of offers from the chasers.
The first offer, with two Chasers, is for their cash builder total. The Chasers then offer the contestant increasing amounts of money and a decreasing time advantage.
The contestant must then choose one of the four offers. #TheChase #BeatTheChasers pic.twitter.com/rLdaj741Kq

The series first launched in April 2020 and ran for five consecutive nights, topping the ratings and making it the biggest new entertainment series in the UK since the launch of Britain's Got Talent.
There's no word yet on when we can expect the third season to be coming to our screens.
