The Chase's Mark Labbett isn't called "The Beast" for nothing!

And one contestant learnt that the hard way after facing off against the unstoppable quiz titan during a recent episode of the hit series.

The 54-year-old chaser took issue with Karen after she stated her teammate was "the best player" she'd ever seen on the programme.

The moment came after fellow contestant Lucy was getting advice from her teammates on whether to take a higher offer of £36,000, sticking with the cash sum of £6,000 she accumulated or a lower amount of a grand.

With the offers on the table, host Bradley Walsh asked Karen for her thoughts on Lucy's options.

To which she claimed: "I think you are the best player I've ever seen on this.

"You're amazing. You were so quick. I'd go for the top offer. You are so going to do it."

However, the brainy quiz master wasn’t convinced.

"The best player you've ever seen?!" he said in astonishment.

"Do you not watch this show?! She's probably not the best player here today. In fact, she certainly isn't," he added.

Poor Karen!
