Mark Labbett, 54, has joked it is important for any trainees working on his show The Chase to ensure he’s “fed and watered” at all times, as he quipped about potential applicants needing “a high degree” of fitness for his culinary needs. The Beast star’s warning came after his colleague and fellow chaser Darragh Ennis tweeted out a job advertisement for a “trainee researcher” position on the ITV quiz show.

A high degree of physical fitness required

Darragh typed: “I love working on #TheChase. It’s great fun and everyone is so nice. 

“Now you could join us. @PotatoITV, the production company behind #TheChase and #BeatTheChasers, are launching a new trainee researcher scheme to help people make their first steps into the world of television!

“The 12-month position aims to teach the ropes of TV production, while also working with you to build the skills to start off your TV career.

“Applications are open until 21st February. Find out more and apply via the link in the bio. And if you know anyone who would be suitable tag them below in the comments,” he added.

Mark responded to the thread with clear instructions on how trainees can impress him.

He wrote in view of his 140,500 followers: “Warning: trainees will be expected to keep me fed and watered so high degree of physical fitness required.”

Darragh responded jokingly: “Experience with large wild mammals would be advantageous.”

While fans laughed off Mark’s warning, they claimed they would “welcome the challenge”.

One said: “Last time I checked any man is happy as long as they are fed and watered and regularly challenged. I don’t think I’ll have any problems. I welcome challenges.”

A second replied: “I can keep you watered fed and happy no worries x I do expect perks though.”

A third commented: “That can be done X.”

While a fourth remarked: “Easy done Mark, I’m a great cook and can do beast type portions and not these namby pamby snacks…” (sic)

It comes as Mark personally addressed one of his followers on Twitter, after they said it was “disappointing” to see him skip out on “glamping” during his new programme The Chasers Road Trip.

The Beast star explained he and his fellow chasers, including Anne Hegerty and Shaun Wallace were unable to fit in the camp’s “too small” beds.

Opening up on their thoughts on the new programme from The Chase stars, one fan wrote: “@MarkLabbett @TheShaunWallace  @anne_hegerty #ChasersRoadTrip Honestly folks that was disappointing skipping on the glamping…. What was that about!!

They added: “Have you tried it before?”

Mark, however, provided a simple reason as to why they could not take part in the activity.

He responded: “Beds were too small.”

The Chasers Road Trip sees the stars travel across America to explore the future of intelligence, from a self-solving puzzle cube, to facial recognition technology.

However, all three chasers made it clear that camping was off the agenda for them, as Mark even threatened to call his agent over the mere suggestion of sleeping under the stars.
