THE Chase's Paul Sinha has revealed that he won't be on the upcoming series of Beat The Chasers because he was too ill to film show.
Paul, known as the Sinnerman on the popular quiz show, reassured fans that he was feeling much better now.
The quizmaster, 50, took to social media writing: "New episodes of Beat the Chasers are on their way.
"Unfortunately, I wasn't well for the recordings and couldn't join in this time around. I'm feeling much better now."
The genius quizzer was flooded with well wishes from fans, with one writing: "As long as you're better mate. You're an inspiration and can't wait to see you on there again. We're all behind you!"
Another posted: "So sorry you won't be appearing. Look after yourself and get better very soon. You are a joy to watch and your sense of humour is great."
A third added: "Sad to read that Paul, you are so kind to the contestants. You are one of the highlights on the show. But good to hear you are feeling much better now."
Paul is one of the six Chasers on the ITV game show The Chase, alongside Mark Labbett, Jenny Ryan, Shaun Wallace, Darragh Ennis and Anne Hegerty.
The show’s spin-off Beat The Chasers first hit our screens last year and returned for series two back in January.
The TV star did not give further details about his health, but has recently opened up about his fears since being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2019.
Paul previously said he was terrified that his Parkinson’s diagnosis will rob him of his quizzing skills. saying "my brain is my job".
He said he wants to remain upbeat and positive as he fights the disease.
Speaking on Loose Women, he said: “I refuse to live in the future. I only want to live in the present and enjoy the present.
“Because I don’t know what my future is. I don't have the time scale and I don’t know when I’m going to start deteriorating."
Parkinson's disease is a condition where parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.
He added: "But I have to deal with it, the best that I can. How can I not? The brain is my job… it worries me, I want my brain to be as good as it can be.
"What pleases me is that my brain seems to be operating at full [potential]."
The Sinnerman then revealed he does get tired occasionally but he is still 'quizzing' really well.
“I’m tired from time to time, but anyone that’s quizzed with me in the last six months will tell you I am answering questions very very rapidly indeed.
Paul also revealed that he will quit his role on The Chase before the producers can fire him.
“I don’t know what my future is, I don’t know my time-scale, I don’t know when I am gong to start deteriorating,” he said.
“I do know that when I stop answering questions at speed, The Chase won’t fire me, I’ll say, ‘It’s been a lovely journey, you’ve treated me very well, see you later.’”
