The Chase was airing a celebrity special this evening and viewers tuned in to see four hopeful famous faces take on a quizmaster.
Matt Allwright, Stacey Solomon, Louise Minchin and Keith Allen joined Bradley Walsh for the episode, and they faced Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty.
Up first to face The Chaser was Matt who managed to secure a stellar £10,000 in the cash builder round.
After correctly answering the first two questions, Matt was asked about a famous poet and Bradley was left confused when Anne tried to explain the answer.
“Which poet wrote: “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love”? A) Byron, B) Shelley or C) Tennyson.”
Matt answered A) Byron but got it incorrect as C) Tennyson was correct.
After Anne got the answer right she said:”It’s from a poem called Locksley’s Hall.”
“Oh, as in Robin the Loxley, Robin Hood?” Bradley asked.
“It’s not, it’s spelt Locksley.” And Bradley cheekily added: “What’s that got to do with it?”
“Because Robin Loxley was spelt Loxley,” The Governess clarified, but Bradley was left perplexed and grunted: “Huh?”
Nevertheless, Matt selected the right answer and won the £10,000.
However, the show got incredibly tense when it was Stacey’s turn.
After securing a steady £7,000 in the first round, Anne offered the Loose Women panellist a whopping £70,000.
Following much deliberation, Stacey took a gamble and accepted the high offer. And it paid off.
Anne managed to answer one question incorrectly which pushed her back and put three spaces between her and Stacey.
With only one question between winning the money and being caught, Stacey got two questions wrong.
But answered the final question correctly and bagged the £70,000.
Up third was BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin.
She struggled to gain momentum in the cash builder and settled for the low offer, a measly £346 when she faced Anne.
Surprisingly she managed to answer every question right and added her money to the jackpot fund.
Keith Allen also secured another £1,000 for the prize fund.
With all four celebrities ready to face the final round, it was game on.
With a four space head start the celebrities managed several pushbacks and the time caught up with Anne.
Between the four celebrities, their charities won a staggering £71,346.
And on their win The Governess said: “Yes, really well done.
“It was always a good target and I thought I was going ok, but you just pushed me back too many times.”
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV and the celebrity special returns tomorrow night at 7pm on ITV.
