It's not uncommon for contestants to take a "guess" when answering questions on The Chase, but one contestant took guessing to an entirely new level!

After accumulating £5,000 in the cash builder round, Ryan - a young Greyhound trainer who's a self-confessed gambler - was presented with the option of competing for £500, £5,000 or £50,000 in the chaser round.

Of course, eager to take a gamble, Ryan opted for the £50,000 - and luck was on his side.

Ryan managed to guess the correct Icelandic translation of 'goodbye', before missing a question about English cricketer Phil Mustard's nickname.

He then went on to "fluke" four more questions by "taking a guess", before being faced with a difficult question about the origins of postcodes in Britain.

"I don't know, it's just a guess," Ryan said after entering his final answer, which was also correct.

No one could believe what had just happened - especially Chaser Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha!
