The Chase presenter Bradley Walsh, as well the contestants, were left stunned on Thursday’s episode as Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett seemed to think a popular Christmas song included lyrics about vaping. It came as the ITV show aired a celebrity Christmas special featuring festive-themed questions. After Mark’s blunder, Bradley was shocked and exclaimed the Beast had “never done that” before.
Comedian Josie Long appeared on the gameshow alongside fellow famous faces; broadcaster Anne Diamond, athlete Colin Jackson and presenter Nicky Campbell.
During Josie’s round, she and Mark were asked: “Which of these feature in the lyric of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’?”
The options were Barons a-bouncing, Lords a-leaping and Viscounts a-vaping.
The audience laughed as the last choice was read out.
Speaking to Josie, Bradley commented: “Okay, you’ve put – quick on the buzzer there – Lords a-leaping.”
The comedian replied: “Yeah, I’d love it if it was the vaping one, but it’s definitely Lords a-leaping.”
Bradley replied: “The correct answer is…” as the Lord a-leaping option flashed green.
“Well played,” the host commented. “Step closer to home.”
He continued: “Chaser’s put… oh.”
The contestants were stunned as it emerged Mark had selected ‘Viscounts a-vaping’ as the answer regarding the well-known Christmas carol.
“What?” asked Jodie, shocked.
“Don’t ask me why, but I read ‘which of these do not feature’,” the Chaser explained.
“I saw a ‘not’ in there that isn’t there!”
“What’s the golden rule?” Bradley asked.
“Read the question,” the Beast replied, looking embarrassed.
“Read the question!” Bradley repeated. He added: “We are now three steps ahead of the Beast, it’s a good omen.”
Turning back to Mark, he added: “You’ve never done that before!”
“Can I just say, if you want to do it again and again just treat yourself!” Josie quipped.
The players competed against each Chaser but would have to defeat Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace in the Final Chase to secure the money for their charities.
Shaun faced an unlucky round, leading to the contestants winning an impressive £35,000 each to donate to their respective causes after splitting an enormous £140,000 jackpot.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
