Coronation Street’s Colson Smith was overjoyed as he was mentioned on The Chase in a question during last night’s episode (Tuesday, March 24).
Colson reacted on his Instagram story, tagging Coronation Street, The Chase and Bradley Walsh.
In a video which had “day made” written on it, he had The Chase on his TV and said to fans: “Listen. Not this one. Listen.”
In the episode during the final chase, Bradley asked the contestants: “Craig Tinker is a character in what long-running ITV soap?”
Colson yelled: “Corrie, Corrie, Corrie!”
The question was the last one and as Bradley revealed they got the answer correct just before the timer, Colson yelled: “Just in time! There we go, thank you. Well done Pat! Well done.”
He later posted a picture which said: “My day peaked at being a question on The Chase, what about you?”
He decided to post the video to his Instagram page where his fans and co-stars shared their excitement.
Sally Ann Matthews, who plays Jenny Connor wrote: “You’re finally famous.”
My day peaked at being a question on The Chase.
One fan wrote: “You know you have made it when you are a question on The Chase.”
Colson’s day, like most of the British public, was spent at home in isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
