The Chase viewers were left baffled by Monday's episode following one contestant's 'bizarre' geography knowledge.

Contestant Laura was just one answer away from bagging £7,000 in the first round of the ITV show.

Having steamed through the questions impressively, presenter Bradley Walsh then asked the blonde contestant "which of these is an attraction are in Hampshire?"

The three answers that she had to choose from were: Postman Pat Planet, Peppa Pig World and Tombliboo Town.

Much to the surprise of viewers, Laura answered Peppa Pig World correctly despite suggesting an unusual driving route she used to get there.

Laura thought the Hampshire attraction was on the way to the lake District

"It's on the way to the Lake District," Laura suggested.

Bradley was certainly surprised by her directions, arguing that "the Lake District is further north than Blackpool."

Laura clapped back however, and left the audience in stitches when she defended her poor northern road knowledge.

The Chaser was also looking baffled by her response

"I get a nosebleed if I go past Guildford," she laughed.

Viewers were stunned by the strange route that Laura had suggested.

"The Lake District? I get a nosebleed if I go past Guildford? Frankly it’s all very bizarre #TheChase " wrote one Twitter viewer.

Despite the hilarious blunder, Laura managed to get through to the final

"Camberley to Paultons Park ( Peppa Pig World) is NOT on the way to the fucking Lake District, it is IN THE F***ING SOUTH" fumed another.

"Baffling episode of television so far" claimed a third.

Others thought their bad driving directions paled in comparison to Laura's hilarious blunder.

The running joke lasted throughout the episode, as in the next round Laura shrugged off her geography knowledge.

"See Geography, what is this about?" she said.

Laura was the only contestant of the evening to make it through to the final round.

With 30 seconds remaining on the clock, Laura eventually lost out to the Chaser and went home with nothing.
