Bradley Walsh was left gobsmacked when a 20-year-old player made history on The Chase – by winning a whopping £75,000 all by himself.

On Tuesday's episode of the ITV game show, Eden was the last remaining contestant on his team.

His three fellow teammates – Gemma, Elisabeth and Sydney – had been knocked out by genius quizzer, Darragh "The Menace" Ennis.

However, 20-year-old Eden was about to make daytime television history by winning a massive £75k in cash – the highest ever win by a solo player.

Eden, who is a trainee underwriter from Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire, was visibly surprised to have made it so far in the game.

Before the Final Chase, he was given the option of going for the lower offer of £1k and the huge amount of £75k before proceeding to the Final Chase – but the player decided to take a risk and go for £75k.

The gamble paid off in a huge way, because the young quizzer managed to beat Darragh in a nail-biting Final Chase – with just a few seconds remaining on the clock.

Eden was even able to push Darragh back on multiple occasions after the Chaser answered some wrong questions – with Eden answering them correctly.

Brain box Eden had built up a hefty lead of 18 correct answers – and in the end his 18-point-lead was too much for Darragh to catch up to as he still needed three more.

Host Bradley erupted in joy and threw his arms around the winning contestant – crying out: "I can't believe it! Seventy five grand! Who's your best mate?"

Eden jokingly replied: "This man!", gesturing to Bradley.

Bradley said: "What a show," as Darragh agreed, saying: "What a show, and absolutely brilliantly played Eden.

"You set a very high target, you pushed me back I don't know how many times but enough to win the money. Very well done."

Excited Bradley was delighted as he announced to Eden: "That is the single highest win on a daytime show ever – and you're only 20!"

He added: "Let me tell you – this is the best quiz on TV. Bar none. Because this just does not happen on any other show."

When Bradley asked Eden what he was going to do with the money, he quipped: "Just look at it in my bank account."

Delighted fans rushed to Twitter to celebrate the contestant's big win – with many praising the player's performance.
