Paul said it was ‘catchable’ but would have to play ‘out of his skin’ to reach the score.
He then answered a whopping 13 consecutive questions correctly, but slipped up with seconds to go.
With 17 seconds on the clock, he was pushed back and required three more correct answers to win the game.
The contestants watched on with trepidation as they were given hope they may win a hefty sum.
Wow: Even host Bradley Walsh was taken aback by The Sinnerman’s knowledge
But the doctor was undeterred and managed to answer three questions correctly, to the shock of the team Morwenna, Matt, Ali and Steev who lost out on £10.250 each.
Presenter Bradley Walsh said: ’13 on bounce from the Chaser. Unbelievable.’
Paul responded: ‘You deserved it. There’s not a lot more I can say about that. You played the game the best a team could have.
‘That was my best performance in a final chase. Brilliantly played and you just deserved better.’
