ITV contestant The Chase stuns fans as she reveals Lord Sugar connection

A contestant from The Chase has left fans in awe as she reveals a personal connection to Lord Alan Sugar. Lisa, a property manager from Luton, took part in the hit ITV quiz show with fellow contestants Rebeckah, Aled and Hussain on Thursday March 24.

The 26-year-old qualified for the final pursuit after an impressive round of cash builder against Chaser Mark Labbett, aka The Beat. She managed to take her £6,000 into the joint jackpot.

But it was her previous career that really impressed host Bradley Walsh and viewers back home. She revealed that she worked in private aviation before her career in real estate.

Explaining her varied career at Bradley, Lisa said: “I started in aviation – so cliché, Luton Airport. I used to work in private aviation so we had two jets private jets and I ran Alan Sugar’s private jet when he wasn’t using it.

“I came out of that and thought what should I try, I became a bank manager. My boss came and told me what he had done and I thought yes, I’m going to get some a little.”

Viewers at home were also impressed with the connection to Lord Sugar, the business mogul behind The Apprentice. @XKaiser_FanX wrote: “Well well used to working for @Lord_Sugar #TheChase #Lisa didn’t see that one.”
