The Chase star Bradley Walsh has met tons of fascinating guests during his time presenting the ITV game show, but he was shocked to discover one player's royal connection.

The contestant's regal links came to light when Bradley asked him about his job as a cabinet-maker, and it turns out one of his clients was British equestrian Zara Tindall MBE.

The hit ITV quiz show returned to screens on Thursday (March 17), and it saw teammates Will, John, Lauren and Mamta take on Paul The Sinnerman Sinha in a battle of general knowledge.

With the hope of taking home a hefty cash prize, the players are tasked with answering questions on varying topics as they try to avoid getting caught by the show's genius quizzers.

When Jon stepped up to the podium, he told Bradley he used to play in bands, but later ditched the dream to make cabinets.

Upon learning about his crafting-related profession, Bradley asked the handy-man what the best thing he's ever designed was.

Bradley asked Jon: "Nicest thing you've made thus far?"

The craftsman replied: "Probably a huge dining table for Zara Tindall."

Impressed, Bradley excitedly cried out: "Did you really!", to which the cabinet-maker confirmed: "Yeah."

Bradley said: "Nice! Very good."

It was then that John revealed that he was once comissioned to build a table for none other than Zara Tindall MBE OLY, the daughter of Anne Princess Royal and 21st in line to the throne.

It means she is the eldest granddaughter of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth and the late Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The award-winning British equestrian was appointed a Member of the Order to the British Empire for her services to the sport in 2007.

Later in the game, just Jon and his teammate Lauren made it to the Final Chase against The Sinnerman – with a total of £9k up for grabs.

Sadly, though, their efforts weren't good enough as they were caught by Paul with over 10 seconds remaining on the clock.

Despite this, Paul complimented the duo on their quizzing skills, saying they played well in the final.
