ANNE Hegerty left The Chase viewers hot under the collar after a flirty remark to one of the contestants who ‘looks like Greg Rutherford’.
In the latest episode of the teatime favourite, 30-year-old Daniel from Scunthorpe tried his luck as one of the four contestants.
He appeared on the show in the hope of earning the money to take his family to Disney World in Florida, as well as being able to see an NFL game.
But when The Governness made her appearance, she couldn’t resist a bit of a flirt with the bodyshop manager, telling him: “Did you come here to quiz, or admire my body work?!”
A shocked Daniel responded: “A bit of both I think!”
Host Bradley Walsh looked blankly at the camera over the exchange, causing Anne to tell him: “You look unhappy, Brad.”
“Nah. That’s some chassis I’m thinking about,” he joked back.
Viewers on Twitter couldn’t quite believe it either - and couldn’t resist commenting on the ‘sexy’ contestant looking like Olympian Greg Rutherford.
“I love Anne when she gets her flirt on!!” joked one.
“Anyone else think Daniel looks a bit like Greg Rutherford?” quizzed another.
"Well done Brad, made me spit out my mince pie,” another said on Bradley’s shocked response. "How did Anne keep a straight face?!"
After gaining £6,000 in his cashbuilder, Anne offered him up to £39,000 in the head-to-head.
He remained in his place in an attempt to be safer, but Anne proved too quick and soon knocked him out.
Unfortunately, he was one of two players knocked out - leaving social scientist Sarah, and 23-year-old drama teacher, Ashley.
In a nailbiting final chase, Anne unfortunately managed to catch up with the remaining players, with just three seconds remaining on the clock.
Better luck next time!
The Chase airs weekdays from 5pm on ITV.
