David decided to take the minus offer in order to get back to the team.

He explained: "The most important thing is for me to get back. I know the team won't be too happy but to make sure I get back I'm going to go for the -£4,000."

The most important thing is for me to get back.

Viewers were fuming and shared their thoughts on Twitter.

One person said: "Oh dear David. I quite liked you too. Robber."

Another wrote: "Naaaaah. Someone just took MINUS 4 GRAND ON THE CHASE #TheChase."

A third added: "Hope this guy on #TheChase gets caught. Hate when they take the minus offer."

A fourth tweeted: "It’s bad enough people are taking everything off of the shelves," referring to the coronavirus crisis.

Another tweeted: "Whoa!! David’s shirt. Now that’s cheered me up."

A third added: "David's shirt was made by him walking under an artist's studio when she was emptying her paint."
