The Chase host Bradley Walsh has come under fire from viewers of the hit show after a rude remark about Chaser Shaun Wallace.
Popular presenter Bradley branded Shaun – aka The Dark Destroyer – the “weakest” player “statistically” on the daily show.
And fans were left shocked after Bradley told one of the contestants that Shaun has a habit of losing.
Bradley was talking to contestant James who faced Shaun having accumulated a commendable £5000 in the cash-builder round on the ITV show.
But fans were not happy that Bradley had taken a pop at Shaun.
One moaned: "Slightly enraged that he insulted Shaun. No one is allowed to insult our chasers but us."
"At least he was honest about why he wanted to face Shaun," a second replied.
A third commented: "And for flippantly disrespecting Shaun, he gets to face the *best* Chaser, what an absolute tool. Get him Paul."
A fourth said: "Oh man, blunt as f*** with the reason wanting Shaun, everyone else is like 'oo yeah, I’d like to take on Shaun, the mastermind champ' when in reality they know he’s s***."
"We all know it’s true but why he gotta do Shaun like that" another said.
"Contestant wants Shaun klaxon!" another joked.
Bradley, who is believed to be good mates with Shaun and who helped get him on the show, recently intervened when The Dark Destroyer and contestant Charlene White enjoy a flirty moment on the celebrity version of the show.
Loose Women presenter Charlene had just finished her cash-builder round when Shaun appeared to make his cash offers.

But quizmaster Bradley quickly jumped in after Charlene commented on Shaun smiling.
The 60-year-old broadcaster quipped “no flirting”.
However, Charlene teased: "You can see Shaun is desperate to smile, desperate."

"Yeah," host Bradley said before pointing his finger and warning the Chaser: "No flirting!
"Hi Charlene," Shaun said as he tried to brush off Bradley's words of warning.

He added: "After this head-to-head, you're going to be snout," referencing an earlier blunder the journalist had made during the first round of questions.
