Throughout today’s The Chase, Shaun had gotten off to a mixed bag, seeing off players Samuel and Becky but failing to stop Christine and Peter making it back to the Final Chase. ITV viewers witnessed the finalists rack up a respectable score of 14 for the Final Chase, although the odds were stacked against them as this is typically easily beaten by the show’s quizmasters. So when Shaun failed to do so, submitting a series of incorrect answers, fans didn’t hesitate to make their feelings known.
With 14 to chase, Shaun’s torrid time in the final round was evident from the off.
Overall, the master quizzer got a staggering nine questions wrong, allowing Christine and Peter to capitalise and push him back five times.
After his two minutes were up, Shaun had only managed to register nine steps and Christine and Peter went home with their share of £9,000.
“How did we do that?” Christine commented in disbelief at what she’d witnessed, with Bradley echoing it was a “bad day at the office,” for Shaun.

However, others were quick to congratulate Christine and Peter for their efforts, despite Shaun’s outing.
One said: “Blimey! Well done though. Very bad day at the office for Shaun #TheChase.”
“Good for Peter and Christine! #TheChase,” weighed in a second.
While a third congratulated Christine, in particular: “Well done, Christine. Nice lady. #TheChase.”
Calls for a new Chaser were met earlier this year when Darragh Ennis was introduced to the show.
However, he hasn’t joined the quiz show as a direct replacement for any of the other quizmasters.
Instead, Darragh joins Shaun, Paul Sinha, Mark Labett, Anne Hegerty and Jenny Ryan as the sixth Chaser.
The Chase continues weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
