Australian writer Germaine Greer will this evening star on a celebrity special of ITV1 quiz show, The Chase. She will be appearing alongside Toyah Willcox, John Barnes and Audley Harrison. The celebrities will have to try and beat the chaser to win money for their chosen charities.
Germaine, 80, is an outspoken figure and is thought of as one of the major voices of the second-wave feminist movement in the latter half of the 20th century.
Her work focuses on literature, feminism and the environment, and she has written more than 20 books.
Germaine has previously claimed to have known the real reason for Thomas Markle’s feud with the Royal Family.
Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain in May 2018, Germaine sensationally claimed the Royal Family had no intention of inviting Meghan Markle’s father Thomas to his daughter’s wedding.

Germaine said: “I very much doubt the firm, the palace, thinks it’s a disaster because I don’t think the [royal family] had any intention of him at the wedding in the first place.
“Their problem was if he was seen to be excluded, the British public would react.
“So he had to exclude himself.”

Germaine responded: “I don’t know what he’s done, frankly, at this point.
