Fans of The Chase are certain something was up with presenter Bradley Walsh in tonight’s episode.

Some wondered if the Breaking Dad star was feeling a bit under the weather during filming, while others thought he might simply have not been interested in tonight’s line-up of hopefuls.

One viewer tweeted: “Bradley sounded like he couldn’t be bothered #thechase.”

Another wrote on Twitter: “Anyone else feel Bradley is a bit subdued and under the weather on #TheChase this evening?”

A third said of the hard-working TV host: “Bradley Walsh sounds like he’s got a right old cold. Have a day off hun. #TheChase.”

Someone else tweeted: “#TheChase even Bradley sounds like he can’t be [bleeped] and is going through the motions.”

All his enthusiasm has gone.

“There’s some days you can tell Bradley just cannot be [bleeped] with the contestants,” said a fifth, adding: “They get a short ‘what do you do, what are your hobbies, what will you do if you win’ and that’s it. Today is one of those days. #TheChase.”

Another, who put Bradley’s behaviour down to his team’s poor performance, said: “I reckon #Bradley has given up now lol. All his enthusiasm has gone. Bless him. #TheChase.”

“#TheChase Bradley doesn’t sound too good,” said another, adding in a separate tweet, “He’s not himself.” 😳

The team was well and truly demolished in tonight’s episode, leaving just one contestant, Rob, to taken on The Sinnerman in the final chase.

He was playing for £80k which, if he had been victorious, would have been the highest winnings in the history of the show (for a single player).

But unfortunately, Paul caught him comfortably – denying him his five-figure winnings.
