The Chase viewers accuse Bradley Walsh of making a 'blunder' on the show

Fans think he gave 'wrong answer' as contestants lose the game

The Chase host Bradley Walsh had a bit of an awkward moment on the show, which caused viewers to complain.

Viewers were left disgruntled when Bradley told contestants that their answer was wrong, because they believed he was incorrect.

The 'blunder' took place when contestants Angie, Azhar, Jo and Stan were trying to make up distance between themselves and chaser Shaun, The Dark Destroyer, in the final round, and there was £20,000 at stake.

Bradley asked the contestants: "How many Americans were there in 60s band The Monkees?"

The teammates answered with four but Bradley told them that was wrong and said there were three.

The band consisted of Davy Jones on the guitar, Micky Dolenz on the drums, and Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork on piano. However, Davy was born in the UK.

But despite this fact, viewers went on to complain about Bradley's answer. After the team lost their chance at a £20,000 prize, fans took to Twitter to hit out.
