Furthermore, the Chaser said: “He was an amazingly strong player, he would have been a tremendous threat in the Final Chase.

“I’ve done myself a big favour getting rid of him.”

It didn’t take long for ITV viewers to share their disbelief on Twitter.

One said: “No way did Marryk just get £10k on the cash builder and get every question wrong on the ladder.”

A second wrote: “The gentleman who just earned £10k in his cash builder had a ‘unbelievable’ hard set of questions against the Chaser. Makes you wonder how and when the questions are set.”

In addition, a third tweeted: “The best player got £10,000 in the cash builder then gets knocked out. #Unfair #TheChase.”
