The Chase: Edinburgh Airport worker wins nearly £7,000 on Bradley Walsh's ITV quiz show The Chase
and live on Freeview channel 276
Jim, who works at Edinburgh Airport, teamed up with Pam from Lincolnshire, Anna from Hertfordshire, and Jay from Loughborough, and soon got his new pals off to a flyer as he banked £9,000 in the cash builder.
The customer service assistant then continued to get the better of ‘The Governess’ before re-taking his seat alongside his team-mates.
Impressed, Walsh took a moment out to praise Jim’s native Edinburgh, calling the Scottish capital a “beautiful city”.
Jim told the host he loved painting mini figures for board games in his spare time. He said: “I set them up and have pretend battles with my friends."
The affable Edinburgher went on to say that, even though he already has thousands of the mini figures at home, he was desperate to win so he could buy even more.
He added, however, that should he win, his wife might have something to say about it all ... as she wanted the money for a house.
Next up was Anne, who studied at Edinburgh University. Having pocketed £2,000 from the cash builder, she played it safe and decided to stick with her lot, telling Bradley that her dad would probably kill her if she blew it.
Retired biology technician Pam joined forces with the pair in the final chase.
In the end, each player walked away with £6,750 – not bad for an evening’s work!
As it happens, contestants from Edinburgh have been doing well on The Chase recently.
Before her big win, she told host Walsh that she’d spend the money on a trip to London to see her favourite musical, Six.
When she and her two fellow contestants won £18,000 - thanks to a question about African country Sierra Leone - Katie beamed: “I think I’m going to see a lot of musicals!”
