The Chase's Bradley Walsh left red-faced as dig at contestant's answer majorly backfires04/01/2021
THE Chase's Bradley Walsh was left red-faced as his swipe at a contestant's answer majorly backfires.
Wednesday's episode of the popular ITV game show saw the host looking a little embarrassed after a question regarding singer Aled Jones.
Bradley, 60, witnessed contestant Melanie take on Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha in a bid to make it to the Final Chase.
Melanie had performed pretty well in the round, but Bradley as sure she got a question wrong about one of Aled Jones' songs.
Reading the question aloud, Bradley said: “Aled Jones forgot the words to what song while singing at the Royal Variety Performance?”
The first of the possible answers was Aled’s famous single Walking in the air and answers B and C, respectively, were Land of My Fathers and Memory.
The former Doctor Who began to chuckle after hearing the third option, thinking there was no chance it would be the answer.
“Memory, very good,” Bradley giggled before cutting to see what answer Melanie had selected.
However, Walsh was left with his tail between his legs when he discovered it was actually the correct answer.
The Sinnerman, who sported a wry smile after Bradley's blunder, also knew the correct answer and also selected Memory as Bradley began to explain himself.
Bradley saw the funny side as he said: "Step closer to home, that is brilliant. I did not know that fact."
Melanie was successful in making it to the Final Chase but was only accompanied by teammate Jenny after the other members on their team Will and Andy, were eliminated.
The players were able to win the £5,000 they'd taken to the Final Chase after several mistakes from Paul in the last head-to-head.
The Chase continues weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
