The Chase viewers were left feeling gutted for comedian Joel Dommett during The Chase: Celebrity Special on Sunday.

The ITV show, hosted by Bradley Walsh, sees four contestants take on a Chaser to try and win a cash prize to share.

And tonight Joel, who starred in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and came in second place, didn't do so well on this game show as he missed out on winning the programme's biggest ever single prize pot.

He was the only player out of four of them to get through to the final stage of the celebrity version of the show this evening.

If he had won, Joel would of won £150,000 for his chosen charity – The Teenage Cancer Trust.

However, he failed to beat Chaser Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan after only managing to rack up 11 tiles in the final chase.

Joel appeared to panic a tad during the final round as he failed to answer many of the questions that host Bradley asked him.

Despite losing out, Jenny kindly reminded him to be proud of himself.

Joel is an English comedian, TV presenter and actor. He is best known for his roles in Skins, Live in Chelsea and Impractical Jokers.

It comes after Joel got his timings majorly wrong and rushed on to his webcam for a half-naked video chat with Ranvir Singh on Lorraine.

The television hunk appeared via video link without his shirt and explained he'd got his timings mixed up and had still been asleep until Andi Peters had called him about the interview.

Luckily Lorraine and viewers found the whole thing hilarious.
