Not really sure they've many left anyway - they held back most of the episodes recorded in 2018/19 from the Spring to the autumn and I think had only just started recording in the Spring before the first lockdown. These new socially distanced episodes are still technically part of the same series.

Today’s episode I think is the first of the regular version to be filmed with social distancing which is surprising considering they still have episodes that they filmed in 2019 in the can.


First one was on the 1st Jan.

Really on the 2019 eps? As Obviously Darragh now in. They wouldn't intro him in then go back to repeats with him not involved. Indeed I think reason why Darragh isn't in BTC was because they weren't sure when his eps would air/run out at time of recording and knowing when BTC would air. Could have risked having him on air on BTC before appearing on the Chase transmission wise.


The current series of BTC was filmed on the same week Darragh made his on screen debut - both he and Jenny were on This Morning that week and talked about it.

Anyone know where they actually filmed this? Credits say LH2 but Elstree tweeted this the other day.

Stay at Home. Watch TV. Post about it on TVF.

The amount of Chasers you take on doesn't make a difference really? They are going to get most questions right anyway but can have the odd slip up.

Sometimes having more can be an advantage as they can get competitive against each other. They seem to be calmer when there are only 2 or 3 of them.


As for where it was recorded Jenny Ryan said Elstree when she was on This Morning during the period they were recording - the last series I think was in LH2, so perhaps just not updated the credits.

I'm surprised we don't see more shows record at LH2.

It's not built as a TV facility though - it's just a big empty building with a strong roof, flat floor and a decent amount of power.

And to be fair it has actually been used quite a bit since it opened.

I’m pretty sure the first series was Elstree, as I think someone on here said it was the old Millionaire studio. So that’s probably where the confusion lies.

Isn't it the old Millionaire studio they film the regular Chase in - I assume it's one of those three smaller studios (7.8.9) in the middle of Elstree Studios. I was wondering if this was actually filmed in their regular studio as the set does look smaller than the arena style set last series, which was presumably filmed in a bigger space.
