For me the set lets it down, it's much smaller than other versions so the massive arena style is lost (I was pleasantly surprised that the Dutch version did such a good recreation to be fair). Offers are also interesting. €500 per question for the cash builder and (as suspected) you face one chaser for the cash builder amount. Some of the top offers have been quite harsh on time (59 seconds for €30k/40k - I think we've only seen times that harsh on the Aussie version).

Now off to the edit. ✂️#TheChaseExtra, available soon on the @itvhub
Think this is just a return of the online episodes they did in lockdown 1.0.
Here's the latest episode for reference (according to a few on Twitter it's the biggest Chase win ever):
Don't know too much about Oz TV but apparently he used to host The Price Is Right, Cash Bonanza and Wheel Of Fortune
Interestingly they're moving production from Melbourne to Sydney to accomodate his Morning Show commitments, just the 400 odd miles difference!
He seems like a genuinely nice guy and hopefully he's a good fit for the show.
The presenter also says the set is getting a bit of a revamp, wonder whether they'll take cues from the UK set with more screens for the floor etc or whether they'll take some aspects of the new US set. Something between the 2 could be nice.
Are 5 shows a week just not enough? Well now you can get more of us on the brand new series of #TheChaseEXTRA is coming to the @ITV Hub next Monday, the 8th of March at 6pm. pic.twitter.com/PPI3psCqo4— Darragh Ennis (@bones_giles) March 1, 2021
