Paul Sinha has led tributes after a ‘Chase’ contestant from Monday’s show (20.09.21) died.

The 51-year-old quizzer took to Twitter to remember pensioner Pete Green, who he went up against on yesterday’s episode, after he passed away in a house fire.

Paul tweeted: “Saddened to hear that Pete from today’s Chase has since passed away in horrible circumstances. A true gentleman, a warm, engaging and thoroughly entertaining opponent.”

Pete, who was the town crier in Wymondham, Norfolk, passed away in June aged 72, but he didn’t get the chance to watch his pre-recorded ‘The Chase’ episode.

A Twitter follower of Paul’s tweeted: “Pete was the Town Crier and lived about 500m from my house. It was a great shock to the local community. He had a great send off with a horse drawn procession through the town centre, with his family and Steam Punk friends following.”

Paul replied: “That is really lovely to hear,Audrey. X (sic)”

Following his death, Pete’s family told the Eastern Daily Press: “You touched so many lives and leave us all with the fondest memories, which will carry us through the tough times ahead.

“A much-loved character across Wymondham, re-enactment and steampunk communities to name but a few.

“Father of four, grandfather to eight, and companion to Kiki the Jack Russell. You will be sorely missed.”

Mayor of Wymondham Kevin Hurn described Pete as “an absolutely sterling character who will be a great, great loss to the town”.

He added: “He was a terrific orator, but also a great listener and was a regular face around town.”
