Although the BBC has not officially revealed that they have cast Walsh, a source has told The Mirror that Walsh is "super excited" to be taking on the role.

"It means that his schedule over the coming months will be jam-packed so he won’t be able to continue with the full range of programmes he currently makes for ITV."

However, the source confirmed that Walsh's role on The Chase would not be compromised. Thanks be to God.

If it's true, Walsh will be starring alongside the newly announced doctor Jodie Whittaker, the first female to take up the role in the franchise's history.
