Bradley Walsh red-faced as The Chase host leaves fans in meltdown over royal blunder

The Chase: Paul Sinha corrects Bradley Walsh

Bradley Walsh, 60, was on hand to help another four contestants walk away with a share of the jackpot prize following their participation on The Chase. However, the ITV quiz show presenter seemed to struggle when it came to helping contestant Lucy with a question focussed on Queen Elizabeth II. As a result, Chaser Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha, 50, had to step-in to correct his co-star and viewers too had their say on the royal blunder.

After accumulating £4,000 during her cash-builder round, contestant Lucy was hoping luck would be on her side as she came face-to-face with Paul.

As their head-to-head round got underway, Bradley asked the pair: “The Queen has how many great-grandchildren?”

The choices of answers were three, five, or seven to which the player opted to lock down the second option, five.

However, Lucy stated she was unsure of her guess and the host tried to work out whether she was right before revealing the right answer.

Luckily, the contestant was right but this led to the moment where the presenter got his facts about the monarch mixed up.

With Paul also guessing correctly, Bradley went on to say Prince Edward had two children and this would have been another two great-grandchildren.

The Chaser chuckled to himself as the host asked him if Edward was in fact the Queen’s grandson, to which the quizmaster replied he was incorrect.

Making light of the matter, the presenter reeled off a list of other names before trying to work out the answer to the question again.

Taking to Twitter, fans were sent into meltdown as one wrote: “#TheChase Shocked that Bradley doesn’t know the Queen’s children!”

Shocked Bradley doesn’t know the Queen’s children!

“#TheChase I hope The Queen isn’t watching this,” a second added, with a third offering more up-to-date information on how many great-grandchildren the Queen has.

“She has seven great-grandchildren, though… B****y repeat threw me. #thechase,” they posted.

After some deliberation over the royal blunder, Bradley proceeded to continue with the game at hand as Lucy made it back for the Final Chase with her winnings.

Next up, it was Vince, who also managed to secure £4,000 during his cash-builder round with the presenter.

Unfortunately, he didn’t find himself with the same luck as his predecessor as Paul managed to defeat him with ease.

The contestant did stipulate The Sinnerman was the only Chaser he hadn’t beaten on the app version of the quiz show.

Claudia and Carol also secured a place in the Final Chase, meaning the three contestants were playing for a jackpot of £12,000.

Putting their heads together for the first time, they accumulated 18 points that the quizmaster would have to match to steal the money from them.

Following a number of pushbacks, it was the team who were victorious as The Sinnerman failed to defeat them.

This meant each contestant walked away with a share of the jackpot at a sum of £4,000 and Paul commended the trio on their efforts.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer said of the result: “Let’s hear it for the girls #TheChase.”

Another posted: “Brilliant effort by the lasses on #TheChase tonight, well b****y done!”

The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
