Chase’s Bradley Walsh was left speechless by a real-age contestant.
A new batch of four contestants on the ITV quiz show try to take down a chaser in every episode.
On Friday, a player named Chris grabbed the audience’s attention with his surfer blond locks as he stepped out for his Cash Builder round.
Host Bradley, 61, asked Chris about himself and found that he had been learning Spanish for three years because his partner was from Madrid.
Bradley then asked: “How old are you Chris?” And the audience didn’t expect his reaction.
Chris replied: “37”, leaving Bradley and the people in the house stunned.
The presenter said: “Are you really? Wow, you look good for 37.”
Viewers agreed with a writing on Twitter: “Chap 37 on #thechase!! Looks like 24/25.”
Others were more distraught by Chris’s hair, with one writing: “Did Chris just stick a wig on his head?”
Another joked: “Is Chris’s hair going to answer questions of its own?”
While a third added: “Chris, Chris……… Maggie Thatcher is on the phone, she wants her hair back!!”
The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5 pm.
