Bradley Walsh hosts this spin-off of the popular quiz show, in which contestants face head-to-head challenges with not one, but all of the Chasers. In the `Cash Builder’ round, contestants answer five multiple choice questions for the chance to bank up to £5,000. However, if they start with a wrong answer, they are out of the game.
Then they are given the option of facing between two and all five of the chasers. The more chasers they are against, the more money they can win. However, the time advantage against them will decrease. Those who do end up taking on all five of the chasers stand the chance of going home with a big cash prize. The game sees questions alternating between the contestant and the chasers. If either get the question wrong, the clock will keep running down until a correct answer is given. The first side to run out of time loses the game.

They defeated chaser Paul Sinha, but won just £1,575 each.
