Tense scenes on tonight's celebrity edition of The Chase, as comedian Joel Dommett just missed out on the biggest ever offer in the show's history.

The Masked Singer presenter was the last man standing after his fellow celebs crashed out, caught by the encyclopaedic knowledge of Jenny "The Vixen" Ryan.

And after securing £4000 in his Cash Builder, Jenny decided to up the stakes by offering him £150,000 - the highest offer even made to a single player.

Joel lunged at the challenge, and by the end even Jenny admitted she was impressed.

He managed to make it to safety with the hefty sum, but the Final Chase was another matter.

Joel narrowly missed out on the biggest single prize ever

Scoring a none-too-shabby 11 points, Jenny surpassed his score and scuppered his hopes of a grand victory.

In the end, Joel managed to earn £1000, which he generously announced would be going straight to a great cause - The Teenage Cancer Trust.

"Ahh, tough on your own Joel," one viewer sympathised.

"I feel physically stressed out watching Joel answer these questions on #TheChase," a third remarked.

A fourth shared a string of clapping emojis alongside the words: "Yeeeeessss Joel!"
