The Chase’s Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett punches the wall as he storms off after losing to contestants

THE Chase's Mark 'The Beast' Labbett proved just how much he hates losing - by punching the wall as he stormed off the show.

Brainbox Mark, 54, got beaten by two contestants on the ITV teatime quiz last week, leaving some fans fearing for the furniture.

One tweeted: "That set is being held together with duct tape, superglue and Blu-Tack - it can't take another hit!"

Most were delighted with the meltdown, with one viewer giggling: "The Beast throwing a strop."
Another wrote: "Would be brilliant if all 4 contestants took back the high offers and beat the chaser mark labbett the Beast, Mark would prob punch down the studio."

He got questions about EastEnders' Aunt Sal, where Canvey Island is, and the name of Africa's second-longest river wrong - leaving him fuming.
