On Monday night's episode of The Chase, a team became record breakers when they scooped a £100,000 (NZ$196,000) prize.

Diane, 52, a housewife from Lancaster, Luca, 21, a medical student from Cardiff, Tim, 62, a retired database administrator from Northamptonshire and Gayna, 38, a laundry assistant from west Yorkshire, answered 17 questions correctly and took home £25,000 each.

They were up against professional quizzer Anne Hegerty, known as the Governess, who had to get more questions right than they did in order to knock them out and send them home empty handed.

Topics covered in the questions included pop culture, history and maths questions, and their answers earned them the highest amount ever won on daytime TV.

In The Chase a team of four players each takes it in turns to win some money in a quick fire round, but will join together in the final chase to take the money home.

In between those rounds they face The Chaser, and if they get more questions wrong than the professional quizzer they're out.

If they pass through that round their money is added to the bank with the remaining players' money.

In the final chase the team has two minutes to answer as many questions as possible, but if The Chaser gets more points they will go home empty handed.

Hegerty got several answers wrong allowing the team to push her back on the board, alloting her less time to knock them out of the game.

She ran out of time with just 14 questions correctly answered, giving them their huge win.

Speaking after her defeat, Anne said: "I hope The Ritz does do takeaways because you deserve it – you all do. Very, very well played.

"I didn't expect to win that one to be honest. Very good indeed."
