Viewers of The Chase have accused Jenny Ryan of “dragging out” the final and “purposely” getting questions wrong.
Contestant Laura was the only one to make it back for the Final Chase after her teammates were caught by The Vixen.
She bagged just nine steps ahead of the Chaser and told host Bradley Walsh: “That was awful.”
However, Bradley told her to remain positive and hope for some pushbacks.
Laura had six opportunities to pushback the Chaser and executed three.
Chaser purposely getting questions wrong in Final Chase so it doesn’t end in 20 second.
Unfortunately, Laura was caught by The Vixen with 31 seconds remaining.
However, many viewers have accused the quiz expert of dragging out the final and claimed she knew some of the questions she answered incorrectly.
What did they say?
One person said: “Chaser purposely getting questions wrong in Final Chase so it doesn’t end in 20 second.”
Another wrote: “Jenny’s trying to purposely lose.”
A third added: “Just get her off my TV, Jenny stop dragging it out.”
A fourth tweeted: “Yes of course Jenny didn’t know half those questions, did someone tell her we have 10 mins to waste.”

One branded the Final Chase a “shambles”.
They wrote: “What an absolute shambles of a team and an awful Final Chase.
“That Final Chase should have been over and done with in about 30 seconds.”

Meanwhile, viewers called out the show for using a question that was on a recent episode.
During the round, Laura and The Vixen were asked: “What did English footballers wear for the first time at the 1933 FA Cup final?”
The answer choices were numbers, shin pads or socks.
But many viewers spotted the question was used on Sunday evening’s episode (March 29) of The Family Chase.
One person said on Twitter: “Wasn’t this question asked on yesterday’s Family Chase??”

A third added: “Didn’t we have this question yesterday? The football one?”
