Bradley Walsh was beside himself in yesterday's episode of The Chase after a contestant played for a whopping £101,000.

Ronnie became the first contestant ever on the ITV show for play for over £100k solo, after he successfully beat the Beast.

He was the last player left, after all his teammates were kicked out, and he was offered a lower offer of £1 and higher offer of £101,000 after winning £1,000.

He decided to gamble and play for the £101k, prompting host Bradley Walsh to exclaim in excitement and hug him.

In the Final Chase, Ronnie managed to answer nine questions correctly - but he was sadly beaten by the Beast with 1 minute 15 seconds remaining.

Bradley Walsh nevertheless congratulated him on his victory, saying: "You've just made history - the biggest amount played for by a solo player!"
