Jay Rayner, Lucy Porter, Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Steve Davis are the biggest winners to date

Everybody loves to see the Chasers lose – except the Chasers, of course – and the only thing better than seeing them lose is seeing them lose BIG.

Because the Chasers get more generous with their high offers in the Celebrity Chase shows, there are more massive team wins than we see in the daytime series.

In series 6 The Governess found herself up against a real celebrity super-team of food writer Jay Rayner, comedian Lucy Porter, news presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy and snooker player Steve Davis. They scooped £152,000 and this is what they were asked.

21) Water that has frozen and become solid is called what?

22) Neufchatel cheese comes from what country?

23) Who was top scorer for Wales at Euro 2016?
