The Chaser gave her the options to either take minus £8,000, keep her £4,000 or go for £46,000.

Pamela told her: "I wouldn't mind if you took the minus eight because that gives us a decent amount each.

I hate to do this because I always shout at people who take the minus offers.

"That or go big."

John added: "It's not really worth taking the middle one.

"By all means, take the minus eight but if you think you could do that £46,000 do it."

Susan said: "I hate to do this because I always shout at people who take the minus offers but what Jon said is quite true.

"I'm going to take the minus eight."

Susan made it back to the team and they played for £36,000 - which is £12,000 each.

The team bagged 17 steps ahead of the Chaser and it was enough so they took home the prize fund.

What did viewers say?

Viewers were fuming at Susan taking the minus offer and didn't want the team to win.

One person said: "What’s the point of the minus offer, no point at all.

"Susan will now sit back hoping the others will get her the dosh. No Shame."

Another ranted: "Susan taking -£8000 on The Chase. There is no place in the world for these monsters."
