Watch the moment Mark left the set below:
After the moment was broadcasted on Wednesday evening, Mark, who is known colloquially as ‘The Beast’, took to social media to apologise.
In a tweet posted on Wednesday, Mark said: “Apologies to those of you disappointed with my behaviour tonight. My mental health was shot before that game, it was storm off or break down in tears. A remorseless diet of quality opponents didn’t help.”
Mark’s outburst happened after he was beaten by four players: Simon, Trudy, Gurbinder and Tom.
All four contestants managed to progress to the final by beating Mark with only a few seconds to spare.
After Mark left the set, which can be seen in the video above, host Bradley Walsh issued an apology to viewers.
He said: “I apologise to all the kids watching. That’s not how you should take defeat.”
Mark’s followers on Twitter gave him their support after he confessed his mental health was ‘shot’ during the nail-biting scenes.
One fan responded: “Tbh you were kind and courteous to the team and their success then reacted angrily with yourself and that’s fine. It’s when the chaser is rude or short with the team that annoys me but you didn’t do that.”
Another follower praised Mark for being open about his emotions. “Everyone is allowed a bad day, and I will be showing your post to my 13-year-old tonight so she knows it’s OK to be frustrated sometimes, too.”
While a third wrote: “You should never have to apologise for the crime of "being human". I'd have been nowhere on those questions.”
Fans can watch episodes of The Chase on ITV Hub. New episodes air on ITV at 5pm.
