The Chase Wiki

Shaun Anthony Linford Wallace (born 2 June, 1960) has been a Chaser in the British version of The Chase since the summer of 2009 when the show premiered. In 2018, he featured as a guest Chaser on the Australian version of the show for just eight episodes, alongside fellow UK Chasers Anne Hegerty and Mark Labbett. He is a barrister by education.

He is known for sometimes breaking out into song and dance and once dressed as a very colorful large ugly sister for a celebrity Christmas Special.

Statistically, he is the weakest Chaser in the British version.
