Mark Labbett hits back as fan claims he’s being 'fat-shamed' by ITV writers on The Chase

Posting on Twitter, user Smarty Pants wondered: “Oh and why is it that on #TheChase the jokes about the chasers are always fat-shaming @MarkLabbett, making Shaun boring and @paulsinha too, and mean to all except about Jenny the Vixen being so hot?”

Mark was quick to respond to the viewer after he called out how he was introduced on it.

The star known as The Beast replied: “Because the joke writers have to mass produce 220 intros to each of us a year and certain themes develop…”

It seems there are no hard feelings from Mark’s side as he understands the necessity of the joke writers.
