The hit ITV quiz show was a celebrity edition, and saw journalist Giles Coren, presenter Chris Packham, comedian Josie Long and journalist Rachel Johnson, sister of Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Following Rachel’s first round of questions in The Chase, Bradley Walsh made a jokey remark about her performance.

Giles kicked off the quiz as he managed to bag £40,000 for the prize pot.

He was followed by Rachel who chose to play it safe and won £4,000 and returned to the panel for the Final Chase.

But following her initial questions before she went head-to-head with Chaser Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, Bradley commented: “The shocking inditement is tonight of course, you not knowing Veuve Clicquot, which is my favourite champagne.”

Rachel replied: “I felt like I got more right, but I’m always very over optimistic. Sad isn’t it?”

Bradley said: “No, no it’s okay – delusional, but okay.”

He then asked: “So, £4,000 are you ready?” But Rachel seemed a bit confused as to what was coming next.

She said: “I’m sorry I don’t know what’s happening.”

“Good, time to face the Chaser,” Bradley joked.

Luckily, Rachel wasn’t caught by The Chaser and join the team in the next round.

Chris unfortunately took a risk to play for £50,000 but lost at the final hurdle.

It was then up to Josie to win more money but make it back for the final round.

She opted for the lower offer of £1,000 and won, taking the total to £45,000 to be split between the stars’ chosen charities.

The trio managed to answer 17 questions correctly and had an additional three steps in the Final Chase.

But in a devastating turn of events, the trio lost a huge sum of £45,000.

It seemed as though they could win as Paul answered several questions incorrectly giving them the chance to push back.

While some push backs were executed correctly, it wasn’t enough to slow down the Chaser.

Speeding up as the Final Chase came to an end, he robbed the celebs of £45,000 in the final two seconds.

The team were devastated by the loss with Josie exclaiming: “Brutal!”

Viewers were quick to take to Twitter, with one writing: “Gah. Worst way to lose. He did a Mark there #TheChase.”

Another said: “Why would he do that. When its for charity. #TheChase.” (sic)

“That amount of money would have been so welcomed and needed by their charities #TheChase,” one viewer wrote.
The Chase airs weeknights on ITV at 5pm.
