The ITV quizzer wrote: “Who can beat all six of us?” in response to his 19,100 followers. On Saturday at 8.30 p.m., @ITV will premiere a new #BeatTheChasers.”
Mark used the chance to respond to a tweet from a coworker, urging him not to get in the way of the stage microphone.
In light of his 141,000 followers, he tweeted, “Enjoy your first #NTAwards and don’t get between our producer and the mic if we win.”
“What chance do I have if you can’t stop them?” Darragh sarcastically answered.
“Find the Potato Sky Box,” Mark added. The wine will be flowing if we win.”
Later, the Chase favorite turned to Twitter to announce that he will not be attending the event tonight.
He sarcastically accused his co-star and friend Anne of having a negative influence.
“I’m sorry, but I won’t be able to attend the NTAs tonight. Mark commented, “I’m spending a peaceful night in because my liver can’t handle drinking at @anne hegerty’s rate.”
With a laughing emoji, Anne answered.
