Olympian Jade Jones Responds To Criticism Of Her Performance On 'The Chase'

I probably don't need to tell you that The Chase is the best show on the telly - or that it's been great to see its recent return to ITV, following a brief recess where it was replaced by a show hosted by former X Factor contestant Rylan.

In yesterday's celebrity edition of the show, Taekwondo champion Jade Jones appeared alongside comedian Arthur Smith, Strictly dancer Aljaž Škorjanec and 80s pop singer Paul Young.

Only Jade and Aljaž made it through to the final chase, where they came up against Shaun 'the Dark Destroyer' Wallace.

It didn't go great for the pair - while they were struggling on just three correct answers, it got even worse when host Bradley Walsh asked: "The Pixar film Brave is mainly set in which UK country?"

Jade buzzed and answered: "London," before Bradley corrected her by saying: "Scotland."


A lot of armchair commentators had something to say about her mistake:


But the Olympic gold medallist had a decent response to the criticism.


"Ima stick to taekwondo," the 24-year-old wrote.

Considering she won Britain's first Olympic gold at London 2012, you can't really argue with that, can you?
