The Chases’s popular spin-off show Beat The Chasers is back with a big change – but not all fans are happy.
The hit ITV show will return on Saturday, March 27, with two celebrity specials leading the episodes for the first time.
It is the third series of the show – which became ITV’s biggest new entertainment series since the launch of Britain’s Got Talent and topped ratings records.
The celebrities taking part in the first special are Joe Pasquale, Katherine Ryan, Radzi Chinyanganya, Christine Ohuruogu and Shaun Williamson.
But some fans are not best pleased with the celebrity edition.
One wrote on social media: “Here we go again, ‘Beat the Chasers’ <<

Another said: “Beat the chasers is back on, yesssss! Oh it’s a celebrity edition, nooooooooo!”
Most fans were just really happy to see the show back though.
