The Chase fans ecstatic as 'awesome' grandad wins massive prize

A man now has enough money to visit his grandchildren Down Under after a HUGE win on The Chase – and viewers are feeling all warm and fuzzy about it.

Contestant Eamonn was cheered on by viewers as he secured a hefty pot of £75,000 in the ITV show, hosted by Bradley Walsh.

Earlier the Irishman said he and his wife Pauline were desperate to jet off to Australia to see their grandchildren, explaining: “We don’t get to see them enough. One lives in Chicago and three live in Australia so I would use the money to try to get out to see them.”

Fans could not be happier about his victory, declaring him “adorable”, “awesome” and a “cute little ledge”.
