The Chase star Shaun Wallace has been a quizmaster on the show for 12 years, and while he has no plans to leave, he is keen to front his own programme at some point. The 61-year-old, who is also a barrister, has revealed the ideas he has in mind about his own television venture.

Aside from filming more episodes of the quiz programme, he is currently preparing for a new show alongside fellow chaser Anne.

Speaking to, as part of his involvement with the Action Medical Research Quiz, he said: “We’re chasing our DNA routes, so I’m looking forward to that, that’ll be very exciting.”

The Chase fans got to see a different side to Shaun, Anne and Mark Labbett earlier this year in their documentary The Chasers Road Trip: Trains, Brains and Automobiles.

There are currently no plans for a new series, but the quizmaster is hopeful that ITV will “have an appetite” to bring it back.

The quizmaster went on to say he’d love follow in the footsteps of his fellow chasers and have his own show.

“It’s good we have that exteriority.

“It would be nice, never say never, but I still have an important legal career which is very important to me, so let’s see how it goes,” he added.

“I’d like to do documentaries if I could probably chase something about law or something about history, history has always been a passion of mine.”

Shaun has also been working on a project titled My Inspiration, based on the heroes who inspire him.

“I’ve got a mural on my wall of the people I look up to in terms of my own heroes.

“So, I’d like to look at their life journeys if I could but who knows,” he spilled.

For now, the chaser is concentrating on filming new episodes of the popular quiz programme and his work as a barrister.

Addressing his 12 years on the show, he said hopes to continue for as long as possible.

“I don’t plan to leave, unless people get tired of me but I have no intention,” he added.

On December 5, Shaun will be hosting this year’s Action Medical Research Quiz.

The charity has over 65 years of history in funding medical research with many notable successes.

With the help of supporters, they have played a significant role in many medical breakthroughs, starting with the development of the first polio vaccines in the UK.

They have also helped to develop the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and test the rubella vaccine – helping to save thousands of children’s lives and change many more.

Shaun is one of the charity’s many celebrity supporters.

He said: “I’ve been involved with them over the last 10 years.

“I think it’s a wonderful charity in terms of finding groundbreaking research in order to find cures for babies and it’s just fantastic really.”

He also previously said: “There are still so many unanswered questions out there concerning such a diverse range of childhood conditions and illnesses.

“I love the fact that Action Medical Research works so passionately to help look for those answers and I’m proud to support their fight for tiny lives.”

The Action Medical Research Quiz takes place at the Peterborough Marriott Hotel in Lynch Wood, Peterborough on December 5 at 4.30pm.
