Bradley Walsh floored as The Chase contestant is unmasked as forgotten Coronation Street co-star | The Sun

BRADLEY Walsh was left floored after a contestant on The Chase was unmasked as a forgotten soap co-star.

During Monday's episode of the ITV show, Bradley introduced four contestants; Nina, Florence, Chris and Scott.

Nina was up first and Bradley, 63, asked her where she was from.

She revealed she lives in Warrington and has worked as a model booker for the last seven years.

Bradley wanted to know how she got into it, and Nina replied: "I was already on the books as a TV extra, did a bit of modelling myself as well so just ended up working in the office."

Bradley – who has had a long acting career as well as his presenting role on The Chase – immediately asked if she had been an extra on Coronation Street.

With a smile, Nina said she had "loads of times", and he asked: "Did you ever work on it when I was on it?"

She replied: "No unfortunately not."

Their exchange caught the attention of some fans of The Chase, who hadn't realised Bradley had starred in Coronation Street.

One wrote on social media: "#TheChase was Brad in corrie?"
