Speaking with the Daily Star, The Chase's Paul Sinha said: "I'm trying to prove to the world that Parkinson's doesn't have to be the end of somebody's story... that you can carry on doing the things you love. The important thing is to not let it define you."

The ITV star, who remains one of the top quiz stars on the show, added: "I take being on Beat The Chasers as a real point of pride because of the speed and reflexes required to be on the show.

"Whenever I buzz in and get anything right, it's a point of massive pride to me. I feel that I've shown in the past three or four years that you can do it whilst having Parkinson's. There's no limit to what you feel you're able to do.

"It's a good way of measuring its progression because my results haven't got worse since I got Parkinson's. It's a good way of measuring my brain's ability and function. I've always said that if I felt that the ability was going down, I'd call it myself, and I still stand by that. But it's definitely not going down, so that's fine."
