The Chase’s Darragh Ennis leads the mourning following the death of a Beat The Chasers contestant. ITV confirmed Mike Johnson’s death on its Instagram page.

Mr Johnson, pictured side by side with host Bradley Walsh, captioned: “We are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Mike Johnson.
“A fantastic Beat the Chasers and Chase player, our thoughts are with Mike’s family and friends during this difficult time.”
They added: “Bradley, the chasers and the production crew enjoyed meeting and spending time with Mike and making him part of the Beat The Chasers & The Chase family.”
