Fans were left to congratulate Barclay after accepting the high offer of £ 80,000 – and duly returned home to his squad safe with the huge sum.

And another said: “I really hope they win the final pursuit. Barclay was superb.”
And another The Chase fan added, “Barclay needs to get out more.”
Another commented: “Damn, Barclay needs his own bank! And £ 30,000 is a good start! I say a 20 and win, maybe …”
And another said: “A stellar performance from Barclay there. He holds his cool admirably.”
And another The Chase fan added, “The best Barclay player.”
Another commented: “Amazing what a trick, I hope they win it all now, Barclay should keep £ 73,000, the others didn’t want him to play.”
