Bradley Walsh gobsmacked as Blankety Blank player walks off set mid-conversation

Bradley Walsh was baffled when a Blankety Blank contestant walked off while he was still talking.

The presenter was standing next to mum-of-two Katie, who had made it to the final round and won £750 although she missed out on scooping the top prize.

He was talking to Katie about how much he liked Swansea, where she was from, and was wishing her well on her journey before she set off home.

"Of course you've got £750 plus a Blankety Blank check book and pen, " he said.

"Is that all alright?"

"Brilliant! Thank you!" said Katie, beaming at the audience and giving a little wave before turning around and walking off set.

Bradley, 62, didn't spot her leave and carried on talking, completely oblivious to the fact that she wasn't beside him any more.

He suddenly clocked it and, speechless, started looking around to see where Katie had gone.

Twirling about, the TV star was left scratching his dead as he tried to work out what had happened.

Behind the scenes, Katie was presumably told that she meat to still be on set and she suddenly reappeared, exclaiming that she was "sorry" as Bradley continued to look confused.

Comedian Jimmy Carr was also on the quiz show and thought the whole thing was hilarious.

Laughing, he quipped: "That's the right attitude. If you don't win, just do one!"

Blankety Blank started in 1979 and originally aired until 1990, with hosts including Les Dawson and Terry Wogan.
