Bradley Walsh was left shocked tonight as The Beast, Mark Labbett revealed what fellow Chaser Jenny Ryan's former job was.

Jenny is one of the brainiest Chasers, often managing to beat the team before her and her former job could be the reason for her success.

During tonight's show there was a question about "QI elves" and Mark was quick to explain how his fellow Chaser The Vixen was involved.

The Elves are the team of writers, researchers and comedians behind QI's shows, books and podcasts.

After Mark and contestant Nuala both got the question correct Mark said: " Jenny was a QI elf."

Bradley looked shocked and said: "She was not."

Mark replied: "Why do you think she has so many green outfits?"

Bradley said: "Are you on the wind-up?"

Mark said: "No I'm not, do you know where that knowledge base comes from, she genuinely was."
