The Chase fans heartbroken as contestant appears on show months after death

ITV The Chase viewers are sharing tributes to a late contestant who starred on tonight’s episode.

Pete Green, known to some as Pete Travis, died in the early hours of a weekend morning in June after a blaze tore through his home on Damgate Street in Wymondham.

Pete from Norfolk introduced himself as a medieval trader at the very beginning of the programme.

On Twitter, tributes flooded in as a news story was shared by fans – but some were left angry at the lack of acknowledgement from the ITV quiz favourite over his death.

Eaglesome tweeted: “Condolences to Pete and his friends and family. Big shame on ITV not giving him any remembrance at the end. They should know the sorts of things people say on here, especially to those who go low. R.I.P Pete. #TheChase”

Triple 6 tweeted: “The official #TippingPoint Twitter account had the courtesy to mention if a contestant had passed away. However, the official #TheChase account seems to be inactive.”

Chloe Stothers tweeted: “They could have mentioned at the start or at least at the end of the show that Pete had passed away, as a mark of respect #TheChase thats a shame what happened to him”

On Facebook, a friend wrote: “Calling all family, friends and acquaintances of Pete Green-travis, Tomorrow, 20th September 5pm, TV The Chase. The recorded session in which Pete took part. Going to feel very strange watching it.”

The loved one added: “Pete’s son Ben was contacted by the producer after he told them of Pete’s tragic death and they said they would let him know when it would be aired. xx”

“Thank you for letting us know. We’ll be watching x” wrote one friend.
