The Chase's Mark 'The Beast' Labbett secretly relocates to US and is ‘having the time of his life’

THE Chase's Mark 'The Beast' Labbett has secretly relocated to the US and is ‘having the time of his life’.

The popular brainbox has also been snapped up by a top agent in Los Angeles who hopes to broker The Beast lucrative TV and even movie deals.

A source told The Sun: "Mark secretly relocated to LA last month – and has been having the time of his life.

"They reckon Mark could become one of the biggest UK exports in recent times."

Mark, 55, will still continue his role on ITV's The Chase, hosted by Bradley Walsh.

The channel gave their blessing ahead of his move – and he is expected to return in the summer to film more episodes of the hit quiz.

6ft 6in Mark, who previously tipped the scales at almost 29 stone, is now a slimline 19 stone and a regular at the gym.

Adds a source: "Angelenos are famously health and weight obsessed.

"But TV execs reckon Mark has a real Clark Kent look about him – and he will be a real hit with the ladies."

The star is definitely on the verge of cracking the States after being signed up as head Chaser on the US version of the smash show.

Mark has signed a huge six figure deal with American network ABC, and was introduced to viewers in a teaser ad on Wednesday.

The source continued: "ABC poached him earlier this year because they felt the current Chaser panel was missing a bit of spark.

"After a screen test, they discovered Mark polled incredibly well with US audiences – and he was offered the gig on the spot."

The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
