The Chase is back on our screens for Beat The Chasers, whereby challengers will go head-to-head with all six Chasers.

Bradley Walsh continues to deliver his charm and wit when presenting the popular show and no doubt he hopes his serious eye condition will not be affected anymore.

Bradley spoke about his condition on This Morning with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes and further explained his ability to change his appearance as symptoms flare.

“People don’t realize I have severe blepharitis,” he says.

“I have to take one pill a day for it, otherwise I really struggle.

“I’ll need eye surgery at some point to sort it out.”

The presenter further describes how it often worries eagle eye fans due to its red and swollen appearance.

Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids.

A person can be at risk when the oil glands near the base of the eyelashes become blocked, causing irritation and redness.

Blepharitis is often a chronic condition that is difficult to treat, says The Mayo Clinic.

The site adds: “Blepharitis can be uncomfortable and unsightly.

“But it usually doesn’t cause permanent damage to your vision, and it’s not contagious.

“If you have blepharitis signs and symptoms that do not seem to improve despite good hygiene — regularly cleaning and caring for the affected area — make an appointment with your doctor.”

Symptoms of Blepharitis

If you regularly experience any of the following, you may have blepharitis.

  • Weep
  • red eyes
  • A gritty, burning or stinging sensation in the eye
  • Oily eyelids
  • Itchy eyelids
  • Red swollen eyelids
  • Skin flaking around eyes
  • Lashes are scaly
  • Sticky eyelids
  • Blink more often
  • Sensitive to light
  • Blurry vision usually improves with blinking.

Who can get blepharitis?

The National Eye Institute warns about factors that can increase the risk of this condition, including people with dandruff, rosacea, oily skin, or any allergies that affect the eyelashes.

It adds: “Most of the time, blepharitis happens because you have too much bacteria on your eyelids at the base of your eyelashes.

“Having bacteria on your skin is normal, but too much bacteria can cause problems.

“You can also get blepharitis if the oil glands in your eyelids are blocked or irritated.”

“There have been many times where people have commented on how I look,” Bradley added.

This condition sometimes worries fans, who think he may have been drinking on set.

This condition causes the rim of his eyelids to become red and swollen, which can make him look as if he’s been drinking.

Bradley also admits that he doesn’t like taking medication no matter how much pain he’s in.

However, to reduce the appearance and unusual symptoms, he often finds it helpful.
