The Chase fans call out Bradley Walsh for accepting wrong answer

His actions caused outrage with viewers

Bradley Walsh should probably lay low for a bit after daring to anger The Chase viewers.

Quiz show fans proved they are not to be messed with when they strongly disagreed with one of Bradley’s decisions on yesterday’s The Chase (Wednesday 12 December).

Jeanette appeared on the popular afternoon ITV show hoping to walk away with a bit of extra cash in the run up to Christmas.

And, after a tense Cash Builder round, she managed to take £5,000 back to the team.

However, some viewers thought she had been incorrectly awarded an answer.

Bradley asked Jeanette: “Who is the only male English judge on Strictly Come Dancing?”

Unable to give the correct answer of Len Goodman, she passed on to the next question.

Jeanette was then asked: “The Joan Sutherland Theatre is part of which Australian Opera venue?”

Jeanette was able to answer this time, but she replied: “Sydney House.”

Bradley corrected Jeanette by answering “Sydney Opera House” but allowed her the point.

But viewers weren’t happy with the decision, believing she got the answer wrong.

One wrote on Twitter: “How is ‘Sydney House’ an acceptable answer?”

Another added: “Shouldn’t have given her Sydney house.”

Fans didn’t need to protest too much, though, as Jeanette didn’t make it through to the Final Chase to tackle the Dark Destroyer, while Hayley and Dave did managing to get 14 steps.

While this is not normally enough to worry The Chaser, Shaun Wallace must have been having a bad day as the pair walked away with £7,000 to share between them.

While The Beast Mark Labbett is considered The Chase’s most revered chaser, his popularity has now been surpassed by that of Anne Hegerty.

Anne surprised TV fans – and herself – by surviving several weeks in the jungle and talking candidly about her Asperger syndrome.
