The Chase contestant breaks record for highest ever win by a solo player
Judith earned herself £70,000 and a standing ovation from the Chaser.
We're big fans of The Chase here at JOE.
Why, just this week we penned a very necessary tribute to the game show, breaking it down bit-by-bit in an attempt to explain just how great it is.
As any avid viewers will tell you, usually, when a contestant is left to to face the final round on their own, it usually only ends one way.
That wasn't the case on Friday as contestant Judith defeated 'The Vixen' Jenny Ryan to take home £70,000 - the highest ever amount ever won by a single person in the show's history.
After the rest of her team had been knocked out before The Final Chase, Judith set herself up for an incredible victory by setting the Chaser a target of 20.
The Vixen never really had a chance, with Judith pushing her back on numerous occasions, leaving her ten answers from victory when time eventually ran out.
WOW. We are in shock. 😮@jenlion took out the rest of her team, but Judith played an INCREDIBLE game. What an exceptional performance. 🏆🎉
Don't forget #TheChase is on tomorrow at 2:40 PM on @ITV and @WeAreSTV. Have a lovely weekend! 📺 pic.twitter.com/cgWbRxdC1h

"Extraordinary, £70,000, extraordinary," said host Bradley Walsh.
"The highest figure ever won by a solo player, sensational."
"I've never done this before," Jenny said, before standing to applaud Judith.
Those watching at home were also astounded, as the reaction on Twitter showed.
Bloody hell Judith. Had her back against the wall from day 1. Blood, sweat and tears were shed. But she battled on and came out of it with £70,000 which will pay for her pottery classes. One for the history books. A god amongst woman. Judith. #TheChase pic.twitter.com/lX1z7z8ddf
