What happened on Friday’s episode of The Chase?

Contestants Terry and Donna were doing fantastically well up until the final chase.

Quizzer Mark Labbett stumbled on multiple questions – allowing the competing pair to swoop in.

However, they flummoxed a couple of easy answers and were plagued with bad luck.

In one instance, Terry had the right answer but fatally went with Donna’s incorrect one.

Sadly they lost out, with a frustrated host Bradley Walsh saying: “Team, eight opportunities to push back, only three executed out of the eight.

“Caught with two seconds remaining.”

Sadly, their £13,000 was taken away – and they were left with absolutely nothing.

How did The Beast react?

Mark smugly reacted: “I don’t think I’ve ever played that badly and won.

“I’ve never got eight wrong before and won.”

Poor Donna sounded gutted in the background.

Bradley concluded: “Such perfectionists are our chasers. They’re down when they win!”

Viewers took to Twitter to share their frustration at their pair’s unfortunate loss.

One user shared: “Shouting at the TV because of #TheChase. This team are the unluckiest I’ve ever seen!”

Another viewer lamented: “This has to be the worst and most annoying chase I’ve watched! I’m so upset for them, I wish Donna was a bit more confident because she knew two push-back answers that would have made the difference, but allowed the guy overrule her.

“They lost with only two seconds to go #TheChase.”

But others weren’t so sympathetic and appeared to have lost their patience with the contestants.

One Twitter user fumed: “These contestants are annoying me. Look at all these rare chances they’re messing up. #TheChase.”

And a second echoed: “#thechase happy they lost, they annoyed me the way they kept blabbing.”

Further viewers were left worried about Mark aka The Beast’s surprisingly unimpressive performance.

One user shared: “The Beast miles off form, but luckily for him so were the team when it came to the push backs. They overthought the answers and ended up talking themselves out [of] the right answers.”

A second user wrote, “The Beast is playing so badly” and another posted, “The Beast is atrocious today.”
