The Chase: Anne Hegerty quips she won’t take player ‘home’
Anne Hegerty, 62, has broken her silence after a moment between her and her The Chase co-star Mark Labbett, 55, sparked rumours that she fancies him. It comes after The Governess star appeared to be taking a glimpse at Mark, who is best known as The Beast on the ITV show, in his swimming trunks in their recent documentary The Chaser’s Road Trip: Trains, Brains and Automobiles.
However, Anne has blamed the programme’s “wicked” editors for causing the speculation.
While addressing claims she fancies her fellow Chaser, Anne said: “Let’s not go there.”
The quizzer went on to insist she isn’t interested in dating younger men.
She added: “I always say we’re not each other’s type and I don’t do younger men.

“I just looked over my shoulder at the sea and they cut in an image of Mark coming out.”
Hitting out at the show’s clever editing for the moment, she branded producers “wicked”.
Anne explained: “Producers just like to do that sort of thing.”
The star also said she didn’t take any noticed of what Shaun ‘The Destroyer’ Wallace looked like in his budgie smugglers.
Anne insisted: “I suppose I’m just used to not looking at the boys.
“I wasn’t aware of it until everyone started pointing it out.”
Anne previously shared that she struggles to find love, which she believes is partly caused by her autism.
On The Chaser’s Road Trip, she said: “One of the things that really goes along with autism is that I really can’t hold down relationships.”

Anne explained: “I’ve tried.
“My longest relationship was four months and that only lasted that long because he lived in Brighton and I lived in Manchester.
“He was a lovely bloke but I’m just not good with the sort of amount of attention that people need.”
Elsewhere, Mark previously took to Twitter to defend Anne as he explained why he and his co-stars were less than impressed when The Chasers Road Trip producers suggested they should sleep under the stars for a night.
Anne wrote in view of her 148,000 followers at the time: “#ChasersRoadTrip #TheChasersRoadTrip So, it’s quite possible that the campsite was actually extremely nice (I have since been told that it was).
“However, we had been promised a) a hotel, b) no more surprises. Ergo diva strop.”
Mark then replied to Anne and addressed the fact that autistic people “hate being surprised”, which couldn’t have helped the quizzer’s reaction due to her Asperger’s diagnosis.
He explained: “And having been told that autistic people hate being surprised, the producers promptly wasted 90 minutes of our time springing this surprise…”
He added: “It was 6.30 pm and I got Hangry.”
