Mark Labbett was forced to apologise to his co-stars on Beat The Chasers after his major blunder saw them lose £40,000.
The 55-year-old, known as The Beast on the hit quiz show, was uncharacteristically remorseful as he admitted he "screwed up" this evening,
During the first round of tonight's episode, the Chasers were up against Kev, who impressed after getting all five questions correct.
But the Chasers were wary and gave him incredibly difficult offers with limited time advantages, leading Kev to choose to take on four Chasers for £40,000.

Yet Kev was incredibly quick off the bat, while the Chasers came unstuck after Mark buzzed in several times and offered up several wrong answers, sparking annoyed looks from his co-stars.
This led Mark to sheepishly turn to his co-stars and issue them an apology.
Speaking to host Bradley Walsh, he held his hands up as he admitted: "I screwed up!"
This apology surprised viewers, who weren't used to Mark eating humble pie.
One tweeted: "Well played Mark.. for apologising #BeatTheChasers."
While another commented: "Always enjoy a contestant winning… And Mark having a shocking time answering plenty wrong."
A third wrote: "#Beatthechasers easy money for him mark f***ed up big-time."
