A CONTESTANT from The Chase has revealed behind-the-scenes secrets from the game show – including what chaser Paul Sinha said to them that didn’t make the cut.
Rachel Warwick appeared in an episode that aired on 5 October, with the pretty brunette revealing that it had actually been filmed almost two years ago.
In a video shared to her TikTok account, Rachel attempted to answer as many of her frequently asked questions as possible – from how nice host Bradley Walsh really is, to how the costume department decide what the contestants will wear.
Speaking about presenter Bradley, she explained: “Bradley is lovely, you don’t get to talk to him that much before and after filming but when I did get to speak to him he is so nice and just as nice as on TV.”
Addressing her chaser Paul, Rachel added: “You don’t find out who your chaser is until the moment they come out and all the reactions are genuine.
“Even Bradley doesn’t know who your chaser will be so that’s quite exciting.”
She continued: “In terms of hair and make-up, you show up to the studio with your hair and make-up done and then the make-up team touch it up later in the day.
“And you bring five outfits with you that you’re happy to wear and then the costume department pick the best one and make sure nobody is clashing. They decide what you wear.”
In terms of technical details, Rachel told followers: “I applied in September 2018, had the audition in October, filmed the episode in December and it only just aired in October 2020.
“A lot of people have asked about the studio audience but there is no audience in the studio.
“I don’t know if many people know this; it’s the four contestants, Bradley, the chaser, and all the camera crew and producers and stuff but yeah there’s no audience…”
Rachel answered more questions in the video’s comments – including the tricks of TV filming after one fan asked: “When Bradley says ‘after the break’ did you just continue straight away?”
She answered: “Yes – everything pauses for about 10 seconds and then we kept filming.”
And when another asked whether or not she got caught, Rachel revealed what Paul had said that didn’t make the final cut.
She shared: “Unfortunately so, but even Paul said my questions were really hard!!!!
“They edited that out of the episode though.”

Last month, The Chase was hit with Ofcom complaints due to “alleged lack of social distancing”.
An ITV spokesperson said: “Series 11 of The Chase Celebrity Special was filmed using approved Close Contact Cohort protocols. As such, host Bradley Walsh and the celebrity contestants were able to physically interact for short intervals.”
