The Chase is taken off air

"The Chase" is being taken off air temporarily.

The popular game show - fronted by Bradley Walsh - will have a month away from screens from next week while Rylan Clark-Neal tries out his new programme "Babushka" in the 5pm weekday slot on ITV, according to the Digital Spy.

And it looks like the new series could give "The Chase" a run for its money as Rylan recently admitted that his show, which will use traditional Russian dolls - also known as matryoshka dolls, wooden toys that contain smaller dolls inside - to determine the prizes, is going to be the new "Deal or No Deal".

The 27-year-old presenter said previously: "It sounds crazy but it is so good. The reason I fell in love with it is the same reason all those years ago that everyone fell in love with "Deal or No Deal", it's all down to the [other] contestants to win the money. It is so good. It's brilliant and it is coming soon!"

"Babushka" has been commissioned for 20 episodes and the contestants will be in a chance of winning big cash prizes if a smaller doll is found within a bigger one. However, if the doll is empty, they will lose all of the money they have accumulated.

It is the latest TV project for Rylan, who as well as being part of the "This Morning" family also hosts "Big Brother's Bit on the Side" and late night chat show "Up Late with Rylan" on Channel 5.

But he now has his weekends free again as "X Factor" sister show "The Xtra Factor" - which he co-hosted with Matt Edmondson last year - has been axed from TV screens by ITV to move online.
