ITV Beat The Chasers' Carol Vorderman distracts viewers with same famous comparison

By Jessica Sansome

Carol Vorderman had Beat The Chasers' viewers distracted as she attempted to get the better some of the country's brightest quiz brains.

The TV presenter joined host Bradley Walsh on Tuesday night for another celebrity special of the ITV quiz show.

Carol got off to a good start, getting five out of six questions correct, before opting to take on three of the Chasers in a bid to walk away with £20,000.

The former Countdown was flying through and had a significant advantage on the quizzers - with her having 30 seconds left to their six seconds at one point.

But it is then the wheels began to come off and a series of passes left her panicking.

And soon, the time had whittled away and Carol missed out on the cash with just two seconds to spare.

"I can't believe that, I cannot believe that," she repeated. "I just hit those four, and I just couldn't...

"Oh man."

Carol, however, didn't walk away empty-handed as she was still given £1,000 for her chosen charity, The Cleft Lip and Palate Association.
