Viewers of The Chase have branded tonight's final chase a "shambles" and "abysmal".

Rory, Sarah, Sophie and Tim appeared on Thursday evening's show (March 19) to face Chaser Anne Hegerty - also known as The Governess.

Canadian contestant Sarah wowed viewers when she went for a high offer of £35,000 despite admitting her British knowledge wasn't great.

Tim and Rory went on to face the chaser for £5,000 - which would bag them £2,500 each.

Rory caused a stir among viewers as he took minus £2,000 which took their total down to £5,000 from £7,000.

During the final chase, the pair bagged 12 steps and host Bradley Walsh admitted they will need some pushbacks "there's no doubt about that".

It comes after a contestant angered viewers on Wednesday's show (March 18).

David managed to get £5,000 in his cash builder round and went on to face the Chaser Paul Sinha - also known as The Sinnerman.

David was offered either a minus offer of -£4,000, to keep his £5,000 or take the high offer of £62,000.

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."
