The Chase fans slam ITV show as Scottish answer is disallowed over pronunciation

The Chase fans have slammed the show for not accepting an otherwise correct answer due to a contestant's pronunciation.

Tuesday's episode of the ITV quiz series welcomed players Ellie, Roddy, Phil and Jan to take on Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty.

During her solo cash builder round, Ellie was asked "which Scottish whisky has the slogan 'Famous for a reason'?"

Ellie, who was dressed in Tartan, replied: "Famous Groose."

She was then informed that this answer was incorrect and the answer which host Bradley Walsh was looking for was "Famous Grouse."

The mistake saw Ellie only score £3,000 in the cash builder, but Bradley was quick to point out her near-miss whisky blunder.

He said: "That's bad luck.

"I can't give you Famous Groose unless you were doing it in a Scottish accent. You were unlucky with that."

Of her Scot-inspired outfit, Ellie jokingly replied: "It was the dress. It brought it over me."

While Bradley wouldn't accept Ellie's answer, The Chase fans on Twitter swiftly slammed the decision.

Explaining that Ellie's answer would have been accepted by Scots, they insisted she should have been awarded the point.

One fan wrote: "Give her the point for famous groose! Loads of Scots up here say it."

Another replied: "Famous Grouse not allowed cos she pronounced it differently?"

Meanwhile, a third viewer complained: "Gotta deserve the point there surely."

A fourth added: "Poor Ellie! Famous Groose is how a lot of people say it."

"She got that right! Should get a bonus point for the accent," a fifth fan concluded.

Ellie's whisky error followed Bradley admonishing her for being a fan of Love Island in a savage swipe at the ITV2 dating show.

The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
