The Chase's Bradley Walsh was left a little bemused with the 'unfair' question a contestant was asked on Wednesday night's episode (29 Sept).

Contestant Jill was up against Shaun Wallace (aka The Dark Destroyer) and was on track to having a good round with two correct answers on the bounce.

Walsh read out the question: "In what year were the princes in the tower thought to had died?

"A. 1463, B. 1473, or C. 1483."

However, Walsh was clearly bemused with the fact that all three answers were so close to one another, time frame wise.


He fumed: "What sort of a question is that?

"Give us a chance! You could have said 1363, 14 something and 15 something!

"Give us a bit of a chance, they're right next door to each other, what chance we got?"

Jill, rather unfortunately, answered the question incorrectly and picked option 'A. 1463'.

The correct answer was, in fact, 'C. 1483'.

Despite getting the question wrong, she managed to still get back to her team, banking £3,000 in the process.

Although, the rest of the Jill's teammates weren't getting the same lucky breaks and 'The Dark Destroyer' sent them all sent home.

Jill was up against the quizzer yet again but was unable to capitalise and was beaten by the Chaser.

Well, if you've ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of The Chase, Walsh recently shared some secrets from the show.

He has fronted The Chase since it first hit our screens in 2009, so he's in the perfect position to let us know what really goes on during filming.


Speaking to the Radio Times, Walsh revealed that the final chase is almost always filmed in one go and that he's as in dark about which Chaser the contestant will face as any of us.

It's also been revealed that three episodes of the show are filmed in a day, so it only takes a day and a half to film a whole week's worth of episodes.

He told The Radio Times: "If there is a slight misread, I am stopped immediately - bang - by the lawyers.

"We have the compliance lawyers in the studio all the time.

"What you have to do is go back to the start of the question, literally on video tape where my mouth opens - or where it's closed from the previous question - and the question is re-asked.

"It is stopped for a split second.

"It means no time is lost for either the contestant or the chaser."
