The Chase fans furious as team lose £46,000 in 'disappointing' ending
The Chase returned to ITV tonight with another four contestants hoping they had what it took to beat the Chaser and go home with the jackpot prize. Throughout the instalment, the end result looked extremely positive, but when the final chase came to head, the team couldn’t do enough to beat Paul ‘Sinnerman’ Sinha. And fans were not impressed.
Joining host Bradley Walsh for tonight’s game was Ewan, Susie, Amy and Mick.
Together they managed to accumulate £46,000 for a possible jackpot prize, they sadly fell short when answering the final chase questions.
With 20 seconds to spare, Paul caught up with them and their 17 steps and the game was over.
Many of those watching at home were unhappy by the result and took to Twitter to discuss.The Chase: ‘Poorly played’ Fans annoyed as team lose £46,000 in 'disappointing' ending (Image: ITV)
One said: “Gutted…they could have done a lot better in the final chase and it was easy for Sinnerman #The Chase.”
“That was disappointing #TheChase,” another remarked.
A third added: “Way too slow, they just stood there and didn’t answer…#TheChase.”
“Rubbish. Good team, poorly played #TheChase,” one wrote online while someone else suggested: “They there that away #TheChase.”The Chase: Paul brought the game back (Image: ITV)
It came after the show got off to an incredible start by Ewan, a 45-year-old firefighter.
He managed to answer a whopping eight answers in his cash builder and faced the Chaser with £8,000.
Before Paul was announced as today’s competitor, Bradley warned the contestants.
“Paul’s not the one you want really, he’s the 11th best player on the planet, he’s the best,” Bradley explained.

Paul then walked out of the tunnel and Bradley commented: “Right, just as I mentioned, 11th best, and the one we don’t want walking down the tunnel.”
“I’ve come 12th now after that performance,” Paul remarked in reference to Ewan’s stellar efforts.
“Great start to the team, not often we get players on £8,000 to go for it,” Bradley added.
Ewan then said he would take the high offer of £30,000 and Paul said: “Fair play.
“Not just a great player, you’re a brave player. Good luck to you.”
It seems luck was on their side as Mick, a 58-year-old charity worker beat Ewan’s £8,000 cash builder and got £9,000.
He decided to stick with his sum instead of gambling and it paid off as he added it to the jackpot.
But sadly they were caught and went home empty handed.
The Chase airs weekday evenings at 5pm on ITV.
