The Chase has been branded a fix after Anne Hegerty, aka The Governess, was caught red-handed breaking the rules.
Naturally, viewers presume it’s the job of the professional masterminds to ensure the contestant does not win any money.
But surely The Chasers should beat them on their own?
During a recent episode, contestant Jan was asked: “Who became the governor of Idaho in 2007?”
Host Bradley Walsh began to read the answers: “Butch Otter, Study Muskrat or Gritty Beaver.”
While everyone was trying to control their laughter at “Gritty Beaver”, Anne selected her answer before Bradley had finished speaking – which is totally against the rules.
Instantly, she was given a telling off by the former Coronation Street star.
He shouted: “You’re not allowed to press that button until I’ve said the last thing.”
To which Anne replied: “Well, you obviously weren’t going to press [your button].”
But Bradley was clearly annoyed, saying: “It doesn’t matter, it’s against the rules. You’re not allowed to do that.”
Luckily, Jan answered correctly and managed to grab £5,000 for the prize pot.
Brad was clearly still very annoyed and said: “I’m going to report you to The Chase police!”
Anne, you’ve been warned!
