The Chase viewers were left amazed on Tuesday as 20-year-old contestant Eden made history with the biggest ever solo win on the show.
He scooped the prize after earning £3,000 in the cash builder and then choosing to go for the higher offer of £75,000 in the final round.
According to Bradley Walsh, this is the biggest ever win on a daytime TV Show by a solo player.

The host said: “I can’t believe it! This is incredible, he’s 20 years old and just won £75,000.”
“It’s the single highest win in daytime history.” He took the prize money home after answering 19 questions correctly, beating the previous record held by a contestant Judith who won £70,000 in 2019.
When asked how he would spend his winnings, Eden said he would buy a car.
He told the host: “I suppose a car would be nice. But nothing snazzy. Just anything with four wheels.’”
The young contestant was then congratulated by Chaser Darragh.
He said: “You did very well, it was all about the pushbacks in the end.”
Fans took to Twitter to congratulate him on his history-making win, calling the moment ‘sensational’.
One person said: “One of the all-time great performances on The Chase from Eden. Sensational stuff.”
Another added: “The most incredible episode of The Chase I’ve ever seen. Eden’s a brilliant quizzer who I can quite honestly say I fancied even before he had £75,000 to his name.”
It comes after the programme was criticised by fans on Monday evening for asking a contestant who was blind ‘unfair’ questions.
Astrophysics student Josh, was asked about the colour of snooker balls, much to fans dismay, and missed out on a cash prize.
