Ingenious schemes from Beat the Chasers are said to be driving their tailors around the corner by requiring them to wear Savile Row suits on the ITV set, an insider says
It’s not just contestants who have a hard time with the brilliant minds in Beat the Chasers.
Trivia titans The Beast and The Sinnerman are already driving their tailors.
Both Mark Labbett (The Beast) and Paul Sinha (Sinnerman) like to wear Savile Row suits on set.
But their yo-yoing weights while struggling to stay in shape can create wardrobe troubles behind the scenes.
An insider says professional Savile Row outfitter William Hunt always has to be ready to cut for the Chasers pair as their weights change quickly.
The source said: “It’s not uncommon for the insane like The Beast to catch up or lose a stone in a short period of time, which makes our job difficult.
“We are constantly readjusting or sometimes even having to organize completely new outfits at the last minute.
“And the chasers aren’t afraid to speak their mind, so sometimes they throw a prank on it.
“It can get fiery.”
Paul Sinha, 51, has been candid about his weight struggles.
The stand-up comedian and Parkinson’s sufferer made lifestyle changes to improve his health and lost two stones after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2018.
He took part in the ITV documentary Fast Fix: Diabetes in which he was put on an 800 calorie a day diet.
His Beat The Chasers co-star Mark, 56, has undergone a dramatic body transformation.
He weighed 29th as a teacher and quiz show contestant in the early ’00s before rising to fame with 2009’s The Chase.
But in the last ten years he managed to lose 10th place.
