The Chase viewers in meltdown as contestant makes huge Glastonbury blunder: ‘I’m howling’
Bradley Walsh, 59, was joined by four new budding players on this evening’s edition of The Chase, the second of the New Year. With the aim of the game to build as much cash with as many contestants making it into the Final Chase, only two faced Paul, 49, made it into the concluding round of the ITV quiz show with £10,000 at stake. As they built up the points between them and the Chaser, one question regarding Glastonbury got tongues wagging online as viewers exposed a major error.
It was retired teacher David, 66, who made it through to the Final Chase alongside 25-year-old landscaper Joe.
Unfortunately, despite both getting £7,000 in their cash builder rounds, 43-year-old housewife Sara and store manager Alexis, 35, lost out.
They may have been needed in the concluding round as the men only managed to acquire 13 points between their jackpot and Paul.
However, they may have had better luck if they’d answered a question about Glastonbury correctly as their response left viewers in meltdown on social media.

Bradley asked the pair: “In legend, Uther Pendragon is buried at what Wiltshire monument?” to which David believed he knew the answer.
Replying to the question, the retired teacher said: “Glastonbury,” to which the host corrected him with the actual answer “Stonehenge.”
Glastonbury is the name of an annual music festival which takes place in Somerset, not a monument in Wiltshire.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote in response to 66-year-old’s answer: “Oh well. Not a hope in Glastonbury BWT #TheChase.”

Another asked: “#TheChase Glastonbury is a monument?” to which a third replied: “It’s not in Wiltshire either!”
Whilst a fourth remarked: “”Buried at what monument?” “Glastonbury” I’m howling!! #thechase.”
Unfortunately, their error may have been detrimental to their failure as the Chaser managed to defeat them with just under a minute to spare.
It wasn’t just the Glastonbury blunder which left viewers in a frenzy as they also scratched their heads about Sara’s hobby.

Before taking on her cash builder round with Bradley, the housewife told the host about what she gets up to in her spare time.
Admitting she has an allotment at home, the contestant told the presenter how she grew mainly weeds in her vegetable patch.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, one viewer wrote: “Did Sara just say her favourite thing to grow on her allotment is weed?”
Another added: “She grows weed? Brutally honest.”

Following a break for the past two months as Bradley’s other quiz show Cash Trapped took on The Chase’s 5pm time slot, it returned yesterday.
With the dawn of a New Year, the programme’s comeback was a hit with viewers, but it won’t be long before a spin-off show hits the screens.
Beat The Chasers will see Paul joined by Anne Hegarty, 61, Shaun Wallace, 59, Mark Labbett, 54, and Jenny Ryan, 38, to face budding quiz masters.
The show will air in due course, so will anyone be able to take down the formidable five some?
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
