The Chase fans gobsmacked as player shares plan to buy luxury item with winnings

The Chase retuned to our screens on Thursday as ITV aired the latest instalment of the popular quiz show.

Host Bradley Walsh welcomed four new contestants to the show for the fourth episode of the week.

The cheeky presenter was eager to see them get through to the final with some money in-hand.

Anne "The Governess" Hegerty was in the hot seat tonight trying to prevent the hopefuls from going home with the cash prize.

Liam, Pen, Gaynor and Mel all took it in turns to take on the cash builder and later went head-to-head with The Governess in an intense round of general knowledge questions.

Maths teacher Liam was first up and he made it home and dry, putting £6,000 in the prize pot.

Contestant number two Pen wasn't so lucky and was sent packing after getting caught by The Governess in the head-to-head round.

Gaynor was the third player to take on the tough quiz show and she told Bradley, 60, exactly what she'd do if she was lucky enough to leave the studio with some cash.

"I'd buy a new handbag. Mulberry has a new one out," she explained.

Bradley, 60, asked: "Have many handbags have you got?"

Gaynor replied: "The last time I counted I had around 64. Not all designer though."

The gobsmacked presented wondered: "Do you use them all?"

"I've got to say yes otherwise by husband won't let me get any more," she replied.

Viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to discuss the amount of handbags Gaynor owns.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Don't get the handbag thing. 64? Been using the same one for the last five years."

A second person posted: "64 handbags? I don't even own one handbag."

Another added: "64 handbags? Who the hell needs 64 handbags? Mad woman."

Gaynor answered six questions correctly in her cash builder, earning a sound £6,000.

She decided against taking the low or high offer from The Governess and she made it home and dry, boosting the total to £12,000.

After being defeated by another contestant, Anne declared: "I've got a game on my hands.

"I haven't answered a question wrong and two contestants have still managed to go through."

Things got even worse for The Governess when Mel also made it through to the final chase with £3,000 in his hand, making the grand total £15,000.

The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm
