The Chase: Anne Hegerty demands ‘have you finished?’ after Bradley Walsh speaks over her

No one messes with The Governess

| Updated:

The Chase star Anne Hegerty asked host Bradley Walsh “have you finished?” in last night’s (Thursday, November 26) episode of the hit quiz show.

Anne – nicknamed The Governess – rolled her eyes and tried to keep a straight face after Brad greeted her entrance with a wrestling-style intro.

And, despite the japes, Anne just wanted to get on with it.

Bradley then held his breath and carried on holding the end of her name for what seemed like an eternity.

He kept going, interrupting Anne every time she began to speak.

Bradley was clearly finding it difficult to hold in his laughter, but Anne had other ideas.

“Have you finished?” she snapped, before laughing.

“Have you finished?” she snapped, before laughing.

In the end, The Governess couldn’t land the killer blow and Liam took £6,000 back to his team.

And, ultimately, she couldn’t catch them in the final chase either, with the team walking away with £15,000.

What else has Anne been saying?

Behind the scenes, Anne revealed that the chasers will potentially be earning less from the show now that new Chaser Darragh Ennis is here.

She explained that the Chasers get paid per appearance rather than a flat fee.
