The Chase's Anne Hegerty reveals her biggest fear on every episode of ITV quiz show
THE Chase's Anne Hegerty has reveals her biggest fear on every episode of ITV quiz show.
The quiz master, 62, admitted that she worries about being "found out" and "looking like an idiot" on TV.
Anne, who presents Britain's Brightest Celebrity Family, opened up about the differences between hosting this show and appearing ITV's The Chase.
She told the Metro: "It’s nice that I haven’t got to answer difficult questions.
"On The Chase there’s always this feeling of, oh no, today is the day I get found out, today is the day when they put a whole load of really tough questions in the final Chase on subjects I don’t know about and I look like an idiot."
Anne aka The Governess also revealed the dreaded category that she fears the most is sport.
She continued: "I'm really not great on sport. The only sport I really do quite like to watch is tennis."
The TV genius also let slip what it's like behind-the-scenes of the hit quizzing show.
She said: "On The Chase it’s just, ‘Can you come in half an hour early, please? Bradley’s got a thing at the other end of the day…’ It’s nice not to be on other people’s timetable.
"But I think I’m quite good at not being a diva because I’ve seen so many people be difficult.
"I just think there’s no point in strutting around, saying to people, ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ – you’re gonna make an awful lot of enemies."
Anne has been entertaining viewers since 2010 with her quick thinking and rapid answers.
She admitted she struggles with physical intimacy as her Asperger syndrome means she "zones out" during sex.
Anne told The Sun: “It took years of psychotherapy before I even considered dating. I lost weight, replaced my glasses with contact lenses and felt a lot more confident, but I find it really hard to hold down a relationship.
“The longest was with a man I met at the Mastermind Club. I’d fancied him for years and we were together for four months.
“Even though he lived in Brighton I still felt suffocated in Manchester. And sex was always better in my head, I felt like I was somewhere else while it was happening.
“It made me realise I needed space both mentally and physically in life, and I can’t make it work."
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
