Bradley Walsh blasted a player for her controversial remark on today's episode of The Chase.
The 61-year-old presenter welcomed four new contestants on Wednesday's edition of the popular ITV gameshow.
Fiona, Omeed, Jill and Michael were all testing their wits against Paul Sinha in a bid to win a cash prize.
Fiona was up in seat 1 and confidently defeated the Sinnerman as she got every question correct in the head-to-head.
The Chaser rallied to defeat his next opponent before he was once again beaten by Jill in seat 3.
Michael was the final quizzer on tonight's show and he built up £3,000 in his cash-builder round.
The player was offered -£3,000 to take a step closer to home and Bradley was left in disbelief when Fiona suggested he could take the lower offer.
Viewers following the show on Twitter regularly slam contestants for taking the minus amount - and the host urged Fiona to not "open the door" for the controversial move.
He said: "Don't go there Fiona. Leave it.
"Don't open the door for him. What are you doing?"
Michael had recommended each of the other players take the middle offer and he followed his own advice as he stuck with his initial amount.
He progressed to the Final Chase and the team built up an overall 12 steps in their bid to win an overall £12,000, but they were eventually caught by The Chaser meaning they left empty-handed.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV and ITV Hub
