The Chase is one of the most loved shows on TV, with millions of people tuning in every day.
But a recent episode of the hit series sent viewers hearts into overdrive when, for the first time in its history, a "fifth team member" featured on the show.
Before going head-to-head with Anne "The Governess" Hegerty, Craig introduced himself and Fred to Bradley Walsh.
Craig said: "I'm registered fully blind but I have a small amount of functioning vision."
"You have to have a guide dog, of course, and here he is, it's Fred," Bradley added.
Talking to the furry quizzer, Bradley asked: "You alright, Fred? You enjoying it? How long have you been with Craig, Fred?"
Answering on Fred's behalf, the 29-year-old said: "He's been with me for five years now."
When asked by Bradley what he would spend the money on if he managed to beat The Governess, Craig confessed: "I need a bigger telly because of my eyesight."
Fans of the show flocked to social to praise the contestant and his guide dog.
One wrote: "Fred is my favourite ever contestant #TheChase."
Another exclaimed: "Craig MUST win so Fred can have boneys #TheChase."
"Fred the guide dog is gorgeous, such a good boy #TheChase," said someone else.
Unfortunately, there won't be any "boneys" for Fred, as Anne caught the team with just five seconds spare.
