The Chase: Viewers miffed after Bradley Walsh appears to accept wrong answer

Hell hath no fury like a Chase viewer scorned.

Another day, another scandalous incident on The Chase: and this time, plenty of fingers were being pointed at poor old Bradley Walsh.

Which deeply intellectual topic sparked this, we hear you ask? Well, the age-old hoover/vacuum debate, of course.

Our host, however, caused a bit of an uproar as he accepted the answer and swiftly moved on to the next question, with Shaun ultimately triumphing in the game.

Cue Chase consternation.

Hoover, it’s long been argued by anyone with a certain passion on the subject, shouldn’t be a synonym for a vacuum cleaner, as it’s technically a brand name.

So, were yesterday’s contestants robbed?

Well, the majority of tweeting viewers thought so – although at least one viewer had a little bit of sympathy for Bradley’s quick acceptance of ‘hoover’.

That doesn’t give Jo, Jimmy and Vee back their £30,000 though, does it?

Although, to be fair, even if Bradley had ruled ‘hoover’ out as an acceptable answer, it’s likely that Shaun still would’ve been victorious, given that he beat the team’s score with more than 30 seconds on the clock.

Maybe it just wasn’t to be, folks.

You can catch The Chase weekdays on ITV at 5pm.
