Dom Joly won big on a recent episode of Beat The Chasers.
The comedian won £50,000 for his charity of choice, Ataxia UK. Ataxia is a condition which affects balance, speech and co-ordination.
The 53-year-old had appeared previously on The Chase in 2012 when he took on The Dark Destroyer, Shaun Wallace. Joly said seeing Wallace "brought back nightmare memories".
'Look at the face on the Beast' - After Dom Joly's victory, he looked like somebody just him his cupboards were bare of any cake. #BeatTheChasers

Tough question for Dom Joly. Maybe he should have phoned a friend. On a giant phone.... How do we think he will do? All 5 is brave. #BeatTheChasers

Joly negotiated the first multiple choice question but failed at the second. In a race against the clock, he was offered £1,000 with a 23-second advance to take on two chasers, £10,000 with a 21-second advantage to face three, £20,000 with a 20-second advantage to face four and £50,000 with a 16-second advantage to take on all five.
Joly took the biggest prize on offer and what followed was far from the nightmare which he endured nine years ago.
