In his head-to-head round against Paul Sinha, The Chase player Ash made a mistake on one question that viewers just couldn’t believe.
It unfolded as Bradley Walsh read the question to Ash who seemed confident with his answer.
The question read: “Which of these thoroughfares celebrated in song is NOT in London?”
With possible answers being Baker Street, Electric Avenue or Penny Lane.
Ash plumped for the incorrect answer of Electric Avenue – and viewers were outraged.
Paul said with a smile: “One of The Beatles’ most famous hits.”
“Yeah, thinking about it, I should’ve got that,” Ash laughed.
Those watching at home appeared to have very strong feelings about his mistake and took to Twitter to comment.
Many were quick to point out the Beatles were famously from Liverpool so they were the obvious choice.
One viewer joked: “Penny Lane, the famous London road song written and sung by Liverpool’s one and only The Beatles…… #thechase.”
“This man on the chase thought Electric Avenue wasn’t in London but Penny Lane was…….. disgusting,” another said.
“Yeah cos Penny Lane is so not in Liverpool! #TheChase,” a fan exclaimed.
A fourth chimed in: “#thechase Penny Lane in London.”
“D**k head…..!!! Electric Avenue BRIXTON you fool #thechase,” a fifth added.
Nevertheless, Ash made it through to the Final Chase along with two other contestants.
Although, Bradley could help but express some surprise that he he made it past the Sinnerman.
The 57-year-old said: “Ash, you’ve done very well.
“I don’t know how you got there mate, but very good nonetheless. Congratulations, you’re through.”
However, in the end, Paul was on good form and managed to catch the team in time, leaving them empty handed.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
