What happened on The Chase yesterday?

Yesterday saw another four contestants take on the Chaser in the hope of winning big money.

One of the contestants on yesterday’s show was Layla – who seemed to impress both Bradley and the viewers at home.

The 20-year-old film student from Lancaster was third up and managed to pick up £4,000 in the cash builder round.

Layla then went up against Jenny Ryan, aka The Vixen, and walked away victorious. She then went into the Final Chase.

Bradley was seriously impressed with the student, repeatedly branding her as a “good player for a youngster”.

Layla may have been touched by Bradley’s words, but viewers at home weren’t.

Plenty of viewers took to Twitter to complain about Bradley’s “condescending” comment towards Layla.

“Good player for a youngster! Does that [bleep] Bradley even know what he’s saying?” one viewer ranted.

“For a youngster,” another wrote, adding an eye-roll emoji to their tweet.

“Good player for a youngster klaxon,” a third said sarcastically.

“Stop saying ‘for a young player’ you [bleeping] condescending [bleep] Seat 2 is about 100 and he was [bleep],” another wrote.

This meant that they went into the Final Chase with £16,000 on the line.

The team managed to build up a 20-step lead, and it proved to be too much for Jenny, who couldn’t catch them.

“20 [steps] was exactly what we needed,” Bradley said. “Perfect. Absolutely perfect game, the perfect storm, the perfect team!”
