The Chase viewers were left angry today after a contestant made a big blunder on the show.

Special educational needs teacher Alan from Manchester chatted to host Bradley Walsh before going up against The Governess, Anne Hegerty, who was tonight's Chaser.

In his spare time Alan, 34, said he liked to play golf and cook spicy foods like curries and Thai cusine.

If he won some cash Alan said he wanted to buy his other half Gina a car so she could pick him up from the pub.

Alan scored £6,000 in his cash builder and decided to play for that amount in his head to head with Anne.

Alan was doing well with his questions, but on his final question he made a big error which viewers were quick to pick up on.

The question asked which tourist destination was the furthest North and Alan correctly chose 'The Golden Mile'.

He said: "It's in Edinburgh isn't it?" Bradley agreed with him and he went back to his team, but not before Anne said: "It's the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, The Golden Mile is in Blackpool."

And viewers were quick to slam Alan's answer on Twitter.

Kevin Field said: "The Golden Mile, with the "Edinburgh Tower'"

Gary B said: "The Golden Mile is Blackpool you plank."

Lois Prior said: "Omg Edinburgh??! #TheChase "

And Ryan Glendenning said: "Everyone in Blackpool feeling insulted that Alan doesn't know the golden mile."

*The Chase continues at 5pm on ITV tomorrow
