As per usual on The Chase, the first player, who tonight was Tom, takes on the cash-builder round unbeknownst as to which Chaser they’re going to be facing. Tom racked up a modest £3,000 on Wednesday’s episode on ITV with Bradley soon after reeling through which quizmasters he could be up against. In typical Bradley fashion, however, he couldn’t resist a swipe or two at the Chasers, including a jibe that Anne looked like a “Russin shotputter”.

Bradley told Tom: “It’s time to face the Chaser, but who will you be playing today?”

First up was Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha followed by Jenny ‘The Vixen Ryan, who was described by Bradley as “so hot, the last man who looked into her eyes needed a welder’s helmet.”

The third possible Chaser was Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett with Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace the fourth possible quizzer.

With Bradley reeling off the other four Chasers, Anne was the final possible quizmaster he said Tom could be facing.

As Anne popped up on-screen, Bradley quipped: “Or is it The Governess, she’s got the body of an athlete, a Russian shotputter.”

The joke brought murmurs of laughter from the players and ITV studio audience, with contestant Marie left open-mouthed in shock by the swipe.

He wasn’t done there as Bradley added: “Named Vlad the Bad, I just added that bit on. I thought it added something to it, it doesn’t.”

Tom then admitted he wanted to take Shaun because he gets “rattled the easiest” but The Dark Destroyer was not the one to walk around the corner.

When it was revealed to be Anne taking to the hotseat, however, Bradley quickly began backtracking for his swipe.

“Oops,” Bradley said. “Wish I hadn’t have said that now.”

“Please scrap that last remark, it’s Anne Hegerty” Bradley said as he let out a nervous laughter.

Used to the jokey back and forths with the host, Anne appeared unmoved by Bradley’s joke.
