The Chase presenter Bradley Walsh has revealed that the producers of the show purposely set him up by sneaking suggestive questions into the show.
It’s now a common occurrence for the 57-year-old host to be in a fit of laughter when he’s forced to read rude-sounding questions and answers out loud, much to the amusement of viewers.
Bradley told the Daily Star: “I start to go and then I can’t gather myself. I try to continue reading the questions but by the time I get to the next one I’m gone.”
“I’ll be trying to speak but I can’t. I get caught unawares.” he continued.
Some of the amusing names have included ‘Willy Wakker’ and ‘Fanny Chmelar’.
The popular host said: “They got me with Willy Wakker and Fanny Chlemar. And things like Chocolate Salty Balls.
“I’m more wise to it these days. I can almost tell with any question what the alternative answers might be.”
Luckily, the audience and viewers at home seem to love Bradley’s giggling fits.
It’s a different story for the production team behind the show, however, as it can cause chaos if it happens during a timed round.
“I don’t crack up laughing too often. But when I do it’s very funny,” he explained. “I start to go and then I can’t gather myself.
“I try to continue reading the questions but by the time I get to the next one I’m gone. I’ll be trying to speak but I can’t.”
The show has an average viewership of a whopping five million per episode making it incredibly popular.
You can catch The Chase weekdays on ITV at 5pm.
