The Chase’s Paul Sinha leads tributes as contestant dies in house fire
The Chase viewers were heartbroken tonight as they learned contestant Paul Green died in a house fire earlier this year.
Green, also known as Pete Travis, appeared on Monday’s episode alongside fellow contestants Tom, Estelle and Jessica.
He introduced himself to Bradley Walsh as a 72-year-old medieval trader from Norfolk.
However, tributes immediately began pouring in as locals recognised Green and revealed he had died this summer.
Paying tribute, Sinha – one of the game show’s Chasers – tweeted: ‘Saddened to hear that Pete from today’s Chase has since passed away in horrible circumstances. A true gentleman, a warm, engaging and thoroughly entertaining opponent.’
One of Sinha’s followers commented: ‘Pete was the Town Crier and lived about 500m from my house. It was a great shock to the local community. He had a great send off with a horse drawn procession through the town centre, with his family and Steam Punk friends following.’
The TV star replied: ‘That is really lovely to hear,Audrey. X.’
