The Chase’s Bradley Walsh was left raging after a contestant was given an ‘unfair’ question during Wednesday night’s episode,
Contestant Jill was the first player to face-off against Shaun Wallace – aka The Dark Destroyer – and had given two correct answers before being thrown off course with a tricky history question.
Reading it out, Bradley asked: ‘In what year were the princes in the tower thought to had died? A. 1463, B. 1473, or C. 1483.’
Immediately noticing the small timeframe between each choice, Bradley fumed: ‘What sort of a question is that? Give us a chance! You could have said 1363, 14 something and 15 something!
‘Give us a bit of a chance, they’re right next door to each other, what chance we got?’
Unfortunately, Jill answered the question incorrectly as the correct answer was C. 1483.
Although she didn’t get the question right, she was still able to get back to her team with £3,000 in the bank.
Sadly though the same couldn’t be said for the rest of the players as Jill’s teammates didn’t have the same luck and all three were sent home after losing against The Dark Destroyer.
Jill went head-to-head with the quizzer once again in the final but despite her best efforts, was beaten by the Chaser, who had one minute and five seconds remaining.
This isn’t the first time in recent weeks that a question has come under fire on The Chase.
In August, fans were left unimpressed with the show after Josh, a contestant who is blind, was asked about the colour of snooker balls.
After his quick-fire round, which saw him rack up £5000 to play for, the first question host Bradley asked him: ‘At the start of a snooker frame, which ball is placed furthest from the player?’
Josh incorrectly answered pink, with Mark choosing the right answer, black.
While some acknowledged that the questions are selected randomly, many weren’t happy that some of Josh’s questions made the cut.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
