The Chase fans stunned as contestant ignores teammates' advice and goes for £48k

She went big!

Viewers of The Chase were left stunned as a contestant ignored her teammates' advice and went for the high offer.

Lorraine bagged a modest £6,000 in her cash builder round and went on to face Chaser Anne Hegerty - aka The Governess.

Lorraine was offered to go low and play for minus £3,000, stick with her £6,000 or take a whopping £48,000.

Her teammate Sandy said: "Don't take the minus £3,000. That's just rude. If you want to go high, I haven't got a problem but I'd like you to take the middle offer."

Mark also agreed, saying: "The minus offer is an insult, take the £6,000."

If you want to go high, I haven't got a problem but I'd like you to take the middle offer.

However, turning back to the table, Lorraine said: "£48,000," as Sandy threw her hands over her mouth.

Lorraine managed to beat the Chaser and made it back to the team with her huge amount to add to their £12,000.

The team then played for a huge £60,000 and bagged 16 steps in the Final Chase.

Host Bradley Walsh admitted their score "wasn't bad" but said they may need a couple of pushbacks.

One person said on Twitter: "Sandy is gobsmacked, literally!"

Another added: "Lorraine on #TheChase absolutely banging it - what it’s all about! Go on girl."

A third tweeted: "Get in chick!!! Well done Lorraine!"
