■ I’m very lucky
I’ve always loved quizzing but never realised it was anything special. I certainly never thought I could make a career of it as there wasn’t such a thing as a professional quizzer when I was growing up.
So to be Chaser now feels like the job I was born to do. I nearly missed out on The Chase job though as when they initially asked for people to audition, they didn’t say it was a professional gig and I almost didn’t pursue it until I realised last minute and organised an interview, following which I luckily got the part.
