What do The Chase fans want changed?

The ITV quiz show, hosted by Bradley Walsh, features canned laughter that is played at moments during the show.

However, viewers have become tired of it.

It seems this week was the melting point, as fans shared their frustration at the after effect to the ITV show.

Some fans were so desperate for the laughter to stop, they begged ITV to sort it:

Some fans even went to the lengths of swearing at the “annoying” laughter.

One tweeted: “Come on @itv stop with the[bleep]ing canned laughter – it’s annoying #TheChase.”

Another wrote: “[Bleep] off with the canned laughter! #TheChase”.

‘Nothing is that funny’

It’s also not the first time that viewers have been left exasperated by the laughter.

Viewers have complained in previous weeks too, with some saying “nothing is that funny”.

What else has been happening on The Chase?

Recently, the show saw drama as Chaser Mark Labbett stormed off the show after losing to contestants.

The TV quiz star was left frustrated by a result during an episode and stormed off before punching the set.

Four players made it through to the final chase and they beat The Beast with only a few seconds left on the clock.

As a result, they took home a whopping £21,000 prize but Mark found it hard to accept losing.

He later apologised on Twitter, and revealed he’s been struggling with his mental health recently. The star tweeted: “Apologies to those of you disappointed with my behaviour tonight.

“My mental health was shot before that game. It was storm off or break down in tears. A remorseless diet of quality opponents didn’t help #thechase.”
