THE Chase’s Paul Sinha may have some explaining to do after branding his ITV bosses racist.
The part-time comic questioned the show chiefs’ decision to give his quiz expert co-star Shaun Wallace the nickname Dark Destroyer.
During a comedy gig in Lewisham, South East London, Paul also blasted his co-star Mark Labbett – aka the Beast – for “f***ing his cousin.”
Paul said: “In 2011, I landed myself the dream job on the enduringly popular ITV quiz show The Chase.
“I am the t**t in the white suit. I have two nicknames, they are the Sinnerman and the Smiling Assassin.
“I don’t mind as the other Chasers are called the Vixen, the Dark Destroyer, the Governess, the Beast.
“Anne Hegerty is called The Governess because she is bossy and cruel, and Mark Labbett is known as the Beast because he is f***ing his cousin. It is a distant cousin.

“Spare a thought for Shaun Wallace. He has been a barrister for 30 years and what do they call him? The Dark Destroyer? Because low evil racism is still allowed on an ITV game show.”
Paul added: “People always ask me, ‘Where is your white suit?’ What am I supposed to say to that? It’s on your grandad’s bedroom floor where I left it.”
I’d stick to the quiz shows, mate . . .
