The Chase star Mark 'The Beast' Labbett reveals he made £1M in a single month

THE Chase star Mark “The Beast” Labbett made more money in one month than he had in his life when he banked a whopping £1million.

Mark, 56, banked the seven figures after appearing on the US version of The Chase last year, but you won't see him spending it any time soon.

"It’s more than I earned in the first 49 years of my life,” he told the Mirror.

“I didn’t spend any of it, I just made sure pensions are topped up, and my son’s school fees are paid. I don’t need anything or want anything. I wear Clarks shoes and Marks & Spencers suits. I’m too old for fast cars. I’ve got a Volvo.

“I’m one of these guys who doesn’t need anything. I like a nice computer once in a while, I go round the world and it’s my office. I like my food but that’s about it.”

While Mark is busy not spending his money, he is also too busy to find love again.

The star and Katie confirmed their separation in 2020 after spending seven years wed — blaming their 27-year age gap and life in the Covid-19 lockdown for their troubles.

Mark, one of the six brainbox “Chasers” on ITV’s The Chase, hosted by Bradley Walsh, moved out of the couple’s Herefordshire home.

He set up a bachelor pad for himself closer to London and has no intention of sharing it for the time being.

“I’m too busy for a relationship,” he told The Sun in an exclusive chat.

Mark is not short on offers from the opposite sex though, with female fans getting so aggressive with their interest in him that he had to hire a personal guard.

Mark makes public appearances up and down the country and hired a minder after revealing he is regularly sexually assaulted at gigs.

But the 6ft 6in TV “chaser” said: “I can safely say on any given gig I get my a**e felt up to four times.

“Every gig I get sexually assaulted.

“The worst one, I was wearing jeans and the woman grabbed my meat and two veg through them.

“If I’d have done that to her I’d be in the cells.

“I felt violated.

“I’ve got a guy I work with now and he keeps an eye for me and will detect when something like that is going to happen.”

“I do a lot of student gigs and I get the young ladies who are only 19 or 20, I say, ‘love, leave me alone’."

Mark decided to leave his wife so she could move on with her lover, Scott, after their open marriage failed.

Nurse Kate, 29, and Mark cited his workload and worldwide travel as triggers behind their split.

The star first met Katie, his second cousin, via Facebook in 2010.
