The Chase fans baffled as Shaun ‘throws final’ with embarrassing pig blunder

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

The Chase fans were left baffled on Thursday as chaser Shaun Wallace made a pig’s ear out of a very simple question.

During the Final Chase, presenter Bradley Walsh asked Shaun: "What four letter word represents the sound a pig makes?"

The answer, obviously, was 'oink'.

But viewers were left scratching their heads when Shaun passed on the question, leaving the four person strong team of contestants to answer correctly.

"He made a pig’s ear out of that didn’t he!" one incredulous fan wrote on Twitter.

Another added: "How could Shaun not know a pig goes oink?" accompanied by a row of cry-laughing emojis.

A third Chase fan wrote: "Well done team! Dark Destroyer had a mare!"

Someone else penned: "Bradley: What 4 letter word is the sound of a pig's grunt? Shaun: Pass. Bradley: Oink".

And a fifth laughed: "Shaun doesn't even know the sound a pig makes!"

The team managed to win the Final Chase and walked away with an impressive £42,000 to split between the four of them.

Shaun said he was just having "a bad day at the office" as he mucked up the nursery style question.

And some fans fell head over heels with final contestant Justin, who they said was "adorable".

Justin won £4,000 for the team and answered an overwhelming number of questions during the final round.

He was planning to spend his winnings on a grand wedding to his boyfriend.

Someone commented on Twitter: "Buzzing for this team. Especially Justin!" with a heart-eyed emoji.

Another fan gushed: "Justin was fab. Slipped up on a few but good job lad."

When Justin donned a pair of reading glasses to face up to the Dark Destroyer, one fan simply posted a GIF with the caption "that's precious."

And someone else was obviously feeling the love too, writing: "Justin looks better with glasses. Seems like a nice, funny lad. I'm cheering for a team win."

Another viewer spotted an uncanny resemblance between Justin and a popular ITV soap character, writing: "Justin is like a young Sean [sic] from Corrie."

Viewers found themselves gobsmacked during Wednesday's episode of The Chase, as two teammates shared a kiss to celebrate their victory.

Drama teacher Zoe congratulated her teammate Ash with a peck on the cheek when he made it back to the team after facing Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan.

And later, when Zoe managed to return to the team with money in hand, Ash appeared to return the chaste peck.

"A kiss for Zoe there," chimed one viewer, as a second wrote: "Not Ash going in for the kiss!"
