The Chase contestant Rebecca was corrected by Bradley Walsh on the show today after she called him a cockney.
During Wednesday (November 18) afternoon’s episode, the 26-year-old from Leeds told the host she works as a German translator.
What did Bradley Walsh say on The Chase?
After Rebecca took her cash-builder round and stepped up to face chaser Jenny Ryan, The Vixen made a joke about Brad and said she struggled to understand him.
And when Rebecca got in on the gag, Bradley corrected her about where he was brought up.
“Hello, be prepared Rebecca,” Jenny said, adding: “It’s a good job you’re a translator, I think you can help me out.
“Sometimes I can’t tell a word he’s saying.”
Rebecca then said: “I don’t do cockney.”
Awkward laughter followed, while Bradders stood looking flabbergasted.
“Ouch!” Jenny said.
Brad then turned to Rebecca and said: “I’ll have you know, I’m from Hertfordshire. I’m from Watford in Hertfordshire, in actual fact Leavesden.
“Do you know where Leavesden is? Harry Potter film studios.
“That’s where I worked, I worked for Rolls Royce.”
I’ll have you know, I’m from Hertfordshire. I’m from Watford in Hertfordshire, in actual fact Leavesden
He continued, slipping into a jokey posh accent: “I’m actually a jet engineer don’t you know. Not just a cockney person.”
“Apologies!” Rebecca said and Bradley replied, still putting on a posh voice: “Accepted.”
Rebecca and two of her fellow contestants, Richard and Alex, made it to the final round and ended up winning £20k each.
Jenny Ryan pokes fun at Bradley Walsh’s age
It follows an episode earlier this week that saw Jenny mock Bradley Walsh‘s age.
The Vixen quipped that Brad was old enough to have bought the first ever number one album by a British artist when it was released.
The presenter had read out the question: “Who had the first album by a British act to reach Number One in the UK?”
When the contestant got it wrong, Brad said he thought it had been an easy question and Jenny joked, leaving him speechless: “Well, you’re old enough to have bought it.”
