"22 deserves to win. Well played guys."

Meanwhile, on Monday evening's show (March 23), viewers were stunned when 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."

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.

Unfortunately for the team, The Governess beat them with 12 seconds remaining.

The Chase returns to ITV tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25, at 5pm.
