Bradley Walsh slams Mike Bushell as he picks random answers on The Chase

Bradley Walsh was left baffled when BBC sports presenter Mike Bushell revealed a rather quirky tactic for answering a question on The Chase.

Monday's episode of The Chase: Celebrity Special was a re-run of a previous celebrity episode that aired in 2018, but it certainly wasn't short of drama.

The celebrity edition of the game show saw Mike Bushell, Rhea Bailey, Annabel Croft and Rylan-Clark-Neal face Jenny "The Vixen" Ryan in a bid to earn money for their chosen charities.

First up to face the music was BBC sports presenter Mike Bushell, who managed to bag an impressive £7,000 in his cash builder round and went on to face Chaser Jenny "The Vixen" Ryan.

However, despite his strong start on the game show he soon got a lashing from presenter Bradley Walsh.

When Mike faced a question about the rock band XTC, he became visibly excited and proceeded to show off his extensive knowledge on the Swindon band.

Bradley then pulled Mike to the side and put his arm around the player before giving him a warning.

Bradley told him: "Don't come on here showing off."

Mike replied: "I won't, Bradley, I promise I promise!"

However, Mike got another telling off from host Bradley when he came up against a question that he wasn't so sure of.

The question read: "Which singer called the head of Apple to get him to change the pronunciation of her surname on the voice program Siri?"

Discussing his unusual tactic for picking A (Katie Melua), Mike said: "I was wavering. I've had a lot of Cs [as an answer], had a B.

"Haven't had an A for a while."

A baffled Bradley replied: "What sort of logic is that?" to which Mike admitted: "Well there isn't any logic."

Although he didn't get the question right, with the correct choice being Barbra Streisand, Mike went on to beat the Chaser and return to his team.

Sadly though, the team didn't get the better of Jenny in the end and they lost out on their chance to bag £16,000 split between them.

This Morning star Rylan got caught out by Jenny, too, after bravely opting for her risky offer of £74,000 and losing out.

The Chase airs week days at 5pm on ITV.
