The Chase is on for Hussain Mulla who has landed a place on the hit quiz show.
The customer service adviser at Blackburn Town Hall will appear as a contestant on an episode of the ITV programme which is due to be broadcast at 5pm on May 3.
Filming took place at London’s Elstree Studios in October and Hussain (27) is under strict instructions to stay tight-lipped about how he got on.
But he did reveal that he had a good laugh with host Bradley Walsh and said:
Two of the things on my bucket list are to appear on TV and to be on a quiz show so I’ve managed to do both.
The Chase is great. I watch it every night while I am having my tea and I have always wanted to go on the show.
Contestants on The Chase go head to head with a quiz show genius known as the chaser to win money.
Hussain, of Audley andQueen’s Park, was persuaded to apply by his sister and added:
It was nerve-wracking but once I started making a few jokes I felt more comfortable and Bradley Walsh was hilarious.
I did try to revise as much as possible but there is only so much you can do when it comes to general knowledge. Regardless of the outcome of the show I hope I make everyone proud and make people laugh and smile.
