Bradley Walsh, 60, was joined on The Chase by four all-stars to try and win some money for their chosen charities with the fierce foursome compromised of Nadia Sawalha, 55, Gemma Atkinson, 35, Jimi Mistry, 47, and James Cosmo, 72. Before they could walk away with the cash prize, they needed to defeat The Barrister star Shaun, 60, who was on his A-game. However, when he was facing the latter, the quiz master was slammed by the host of the ITV quiz show as he noticed the general knowledge guru was talking to the audience.

After the presenter asked James and The Chaser what a group of badgers are commonly called, he addressed the apparent rule break.
“Who are you talking too?” Bradley asked, before adding: “Conversing with the audience – do you mind? I’m trying to run a show here.
“Who’s that? Members of your family in the front row?” the host jibed and was quite stunned when Shaun said they were.
“Is it really? I’m so sorry I didn’t realise,” the former soap actor remarked as he realised his error.
“Let’s get on with the game. No more talking to your family,” he continued.
Later in the round, when Shaun seemed to repeat a previous statement the host had made, Bradley lost his cool again.
“I already said that,” the presenter raged, before adding: “You’re too busy talking to your family.”
The Doctor Who actor then joked The Barrister’s guests would probably bring along one of his pets next time.
With all the interruptions throughout the head-to-head round, eventually it did come to an end for all involved.
Luckily, she managed to hold off The Barrister and made it back to the player’s table, bringing the jackpot up to £8,500.

Another added on the social media platform: “Actually Gemma won this for them! Well done lady!! Well done team! #TheChase.”
