The Chase's Bradley Walsh is easily one of the most loved television stars on the planet, but the host shocked his fans late last year when he revealed his plans to retire in a couple of years.

Not only has Walsh fronted the reality quiz series for over a decade, but he's also starred in a number of other shows in a career spanning 40 years, but he has now hinted that he can see himself wrapping up his showbiz career in the not too distant future.

Speaking on the Sliding Doors podcast, Walsh said: "You know what, in a couple of years' time I won't have to do any of it, I'll be retired and that'll be it."

However, now co-star and colleague Shaun Wallace has spoken out about Walsh's retirement saying he won't be leaving anytime soon if he gets his way.

Speaking to Express, the Dark Destroyer said: "Let's hope not, I've not heard that, but if I've got anything to do with it, he'll be going until his last breath."

He also added that without Walsh the show "won't be the same".

Walsh has also hosted game shows such as Wheel of Fortune, Odd One In and Keep It In The Family.

He's also starred as Pop Larkin in The Larkins, as Danny Baldwin in Coronation Street, as DS Ronnie Brooks in Law & Order: UK and most recently as Graham O'Brien in Doctor Who.

On top of that, the father-of-two has fronted his own show, Bradley Wash & Son: Breaking Dad, where he stars alongside his son Barney.

If that wasn't enough of a CV, Walsh has released two albums; Chasing Dreams (2016) and When You're Smiling (2017).
