A Suffolk man put his trivia knowledge to the test when he tried to win big on a popular TV game show.

Nigel, 62, is a sustainability consultant from Stowmarket who appeared on Monday’s episode of ITV’s The Chase.

Host Bradley Walsh questioned where the Suffolk town was located and Nigel clarified that it’s not far from Ipswich.

He said that if he were to win the jackpot he would want to spend the money on his 30th wedding anniversary celebrations.

During the Cash Builder round, where every correct answer is worth £1,000, Nigel managed to get five correct answers.

He then went head to head with Chaser Paul Sinha, The Sinnerman, and managed secure £5,000 for the team and a chance to play in the final.

After two of his fellow contestants were caught by the Chaser, Nigel ended up in the final round with Anna from Nottingham to play for £13,000.

They were able to answer 15 questions correctly – however The Sinnerman managed to catch the pair with only one second remaining.

Bradley Walsh said: “You played so well. I hope you’ve enjoyed the day, Nigel.

“It’s lovely to meet you, mate. Fantastic contestant.”
