The Chase's Shaun Wallace hits back at 'nightmare' contestant after dig about 'gaps in his knowledge'

THE Chase's Shaun Wallace has hit back at a 'nightmare' contestant after a dig about 'gaps in his knowledge'.

On Tuesday's edition of the ITV quiz show, a contestant called Ellen was first up to take on a Chaser.

Ellen, a housing officer from Worthing, was asked by host Bradley Walsh about her hobbies and interests.

Theatre-lover Ellen replied: "I'm part of a drama group for Shakespeare actors, the last drama we did was A Midsummer Night's Dream."

She managed to secure £4000 in the cash builder before being asked by Bradley which Chaser she would like to take on if she had a choice.

She said: "I think Shaun. Where his gaps are I might have a bit of knowledge."

Fans of the show were surprised by her comment, with one writing on Twitter: "It's going to need to be pretty big gaps!"

Another joked: "I’d like to take on Shaun cos he’s the thickest….."

When Shaun was revealed as The Chaser for the episode, a third tweeted: "Yes!! It's Shaun and his gaps" alongside some crying with laughter emojis.

When Bradley told him what Ellen had said, he replied: "I heard. Forget Midsummer Night's Dream, you're about to have a late afternoon nightmare."

The episode also saw viewers swooning over 'hot firefighter' Josh, 23.

Taking to Twitter, one said: "Josh on The Chase is stunning."

A second added: "Josh on The Chase is a bit of alright ain’t he #TheChase."

The Chase continues tonight at 5pm on ITV.
