The Chase host Bradley Walsh infuriated viewers tonight as he made a comment about a contestant.

Bradley chatted to yoga teacher Beth before she took on The Beast, Mark Labbett, who was tonight's Chaser.

Beth, 30, from Hertfordshire said that she had been teaching yoga for 10 years and before that was a photographer, a job she still pursued.

In her spare time, she said, she enjoyed ice skating and if she won money she wanted to buy a campervan and travel around Europe, going to festivals.

In her cash builder she managed to get £4,000 before she went up against The Chaser.

As Bradley told her what she'd scored he said "But you're a better player than that."

And viewers were annoyed, after hearing Bradley bring out the same phrase again to describe a mediocre contestant.

@Andi5008 said: "Is Brad on commission for the amount of time he says 'you're a better player than that'"

Andrew Johnson said: "They're ALL a better player than that but NONE OF THEM PROVE IT."

Rosie's mum said: "“Your a better player than that” Eh? Exactly what do you base that on??"

Beth went up against The Beast and decided to play for the £4,000 she had earned.

And she managed to get past him with ease, taking the cash back to her team.
