The Chase fans slam Jenny Ryan for ‘insult’ about contestant’s teeth

Viewers branded her comment "rude" and "harsh"

The Chase viewers were left shocked when Jenny Ryan made a “rude” remark about a contestant’s smile.

Prison officer Ricky appeared on the game show last night and went up against chaser Jenny – who is know as The Vixen – after bagging £3,000 in his cash builder round.

Within seconds of meeting Ricky, The Vixen made a comment about the gaps between his teeth.

As she walked out on set, she told Ricky: “There are more gaps in your knowledge than there are in your smile.”

Ricky laughed as host Bradley Walsh moved on to discuss how much the quizzer wanted to play for.

Viewers watching from home were left shocked by Jenny’s remark, with many branding it “rude” and “harsh”.

One person said: “I can’t believe the Vixen just told Ricky on the Chase that he has bad teeth!! How bloody rude! She’s no oil painting #TheChase.”

Another wrote: “That was really rude and uncalled for @jenlion you should apologise … #thechase,” while a third added: “CANNOT BELIEVE SHE SAID THAT TO RICKY THATS UNBELIEVABLE. So rude…. #TheChase @ITV.”

A fourth tweeted: “Good for Ricky, he deserves that little victory after the chaser was so horrendously rude #TheChase.”

Ricky had spoken about his smile when Bradley asked him what he would do with the prize money.

He said: “You probably have noticed I have a little gap in the smile there. So the plan is if I get some money get a few facial repairs.”

Ricky managed to beat the Chaser and return with £3,000 for the prize fund.
