The Paralympic champion was one of four celebrities to tackle the panel of six quiz superbrains, consisting of Mark Labbett, Anne Hegarty Shaun Wallace, Paul Sinha, Jenny Ryan and Darragh Ennis, on ITV’s Beat The Chasers last week.

Host Bradley Walsh steered Will through the preliminary questions as he sought to build a prize fund – he then had to decide how many of the six panellists he wanted to take on and how much money he would try to win to boost the work of Brighton TTC, where he plays and coaches. His fellow contestants included interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, actress and presenter Shobna Gulati and former England international footballer David James

No spoilers here, but you can watch the episode on ITVX which was broadcast on Wednesday 8th May – Will is the last of the four celebrities to try to take down the Chasers.

The European champion said: “It was amazing doing Beat The Chasers. It was up there with the Paralympic final with nerves, for sure, but it was a good experience.

“I had to do a practice before and I didn’t get many questions right, so I was a bit nervous going on, especially when I had to choose how much money I was going to try to win. I went for one of the lowest ones – I was quite realistic!”
