Viewers left stunned by Bradley's reaction to rude answer on The Chase

And even the contestants were unable to resist the giggles

Bradley Walsh is known for getting the giggles while on the job, so how he kept a straight face during a recent episode of The Chase is anyone's guess.

And 53-year-old contestant Chris from Leeds only just managed to do the same thing.

It all started innocently enough when host Bradley asked Chris: "What was the first Eric Hill book to feature Spot the Dog?"

But as soon as the answer options were revealed, it was obvious someone in the questions department was having a cheeky laugh at the contestant's expense.

The sales manager was left with three answers to pick from: "Hot Spot, Where's Spot? and Gee, Spot!"

As Bradley read out the third answer, Chris nearly lost his cool.

However, after spending just a few seconds deliberating - and a few more laughing - Chris was able to get the right answer and keep The Sinnerman off his tail.
