"He carries himself with all the pomp and majesty of a medieval king who's fully aware that he knows quite a lot more about several things than most people. He's a readymade cult hero likeDavid Dickinson before him, he'll no doubt get his own show within the next couple of years, and he single-handedly elevates the whole thing to a level it wouldn't otherwise deserve. It may not be the perfect daytime gameshow but, thanks mainly to Labbett,The Chase can be horribly watchable entertainment"
TV critic Stuart Heritage credits Labbett for the show's success (2010)===The Chase US[edit source | editbeta]===
