Darragh ‘The Menace’ Ennis has quickly become one of The Chase’s most popular brainboxes since he joined the line-up of Chasers last year. And while Darragh may be the newest face on the ITV quiz show, presenter Bradley Walsh has been on the show from day one. Having been the frontman for over a decade, question marks have surrounded the 61-year-old’s future on the show ever since he hinted at his retirement plans earlier this year – and now Darragh has weighed in.
Speaking to Express.co.uk at this year’s TRIC Awards, Darragh opened up on how life has been since joining the ITV show.
“It’s been lovely,” he said. “It’s the best job in the world.”
Discussing Bradley, Darragh first revealed how managing to get one over on the Chase presenter is, without doubt, his favourite part of the show.
“Making Brad laugh so much he had to sit down,” Darragh recalled when asked about his favourite memory.

Bradley also missed out on award himself alongside This Morning’s Alison Hammond.
Ant and Dec bagged the TV Personality award over their ITV co-stars.
Darragh’s comments on Bradley’s future come after the veteran presenter admitted in an interview he’d be looking to retire in a few years time.
“You know what, in a couple of years time I won’t have to do any of it, I’ll be retired and that’ll be it,” he told The Sun.
The presenter added how The Chase and Beat the Chasers only takes up about 12 weeks of his schedule a year.
“I don’t actually have time off,” he told the publication back in July.
“I have meetings, I have personal appearances I have to make and stuff like that with other things I’ve got going on, so it’s quite tricky to juggle it about.”
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
