Chaser’s Wife Left Fuming After Loose Women Bring Up Fact They’re Cousins


The Chase star, Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, appeared on Loose Women to discuss his relationship.

Taking to Loose Women, the 52-year-old Chaser appeared alongside his wife, 27-year-old Katie. However, things got really awkward when they were asked by host Andrea about the fact that they are actually second cousins.

Katie looks furious that the subject was brought up, as Mark manages to dodge the question.

Mark begins to waffle about being a bachelor, seemingly to change the subject: “I was so used to being on my own, and as a bachelor, you’re used to being selfish and doing things for yourself.

“The big struggle is having to do things for someone else.”

People soon began to comment on Twitter about the fact they’re related…

The pair got married back in October 2014 however at the time, they were unaware that they’re actually second cousins. Their fathers are first cousins.

In case you were wondering, it’s not illegal to marry your cousin. In the UK, marriages between cousins are completely legal.
