    Fans of ITV's The Chase were left fairly annoyed with presenter Bradley Walsh after he appeared to tell a player that they were good for their age.

    The popular quizzing programme was back on screens on Tuesday afternoon with contestants Charlie, Molly, Keith and Carole hoping to win big.

    However it was 22-year-old contestant Molly who appeared to catch Bradley's eye when she managed to gain £5,000 from her cash builder round.

    Complimenting her success, host Bradley was blown away by her general knowledge and how young she was.

    But fans were not best pleased with the presenter's comments and took to Twitter to air their frustrations.

    One person wrote: "22,yr old student gets 5 general knowledge questions right … that’s not special, it’s bang average.. Brad."

    Another penned: "Good player for 22? Patronising much?"

    A third wrote: "Bradley has got to stop saying these university-educated 20+ year olds are 'good for their age.'"

    While a third added: "Anyone could have turned the 5k into 6k if they had more time Brads."

    Molly did end up doing well for herself on the show and sailed through to the final round.

    But just when viewers thought the show was becoming mundane, things changed dramatically.

    As all four contestants made it through to the final following their face-off with chaser Mark Labbett, fans at home were convinced that the game wasn't going to go in their favour.

    With £20,000 in the kitty, the team only managed to answer seventeen questions between them in the final round.

    But although fans thought the team would be annihilated by the chaser, Mark answered several questions wrong.

    The amount of push backs received certainly helped the team and with only a few seconds left, Mark was unable to beat the team.

    Shocked by the team's unbelievable win, fans headed over to Twitter to share their thoughts.

    One person wrote: "#TheChase amazing game today congratulations team on a fantastic performance."

    Another said: "Once again on ITVs #TheChase @MarkLabbett put his foot in his mouth by saying he was going to make the final contestant look like a proper Charlie."

    While a third said: "That was a brilliant game. The Beast rushing to answer a question that hasn’t even been asked yet was hilarious!"
