ITV The Chase's Bradley Walsh shouts 'what' as grandad shares real age

Bradley Walsh was in disbelief by a player's age on today's The Chase.

The 62-year-old returned to host Monday's edition of the popular ITV game show. Bradley welcomed Tina, Mervin, Val and JIm as they aimed to win thousands on the latest episode.

They were testing the wits against Shaun Wallace, who was trying to prevent the team from taking home a huge cash prize. Tina got off to a superb start as she booked her spot in the last round with £5,000.

Mervin aimed to join his teammate in the final and earned an impressive £4,000 in his cash-builder. Bradley was amazed when he discovered Mervin wanted to use the money to take his four granchildren to Jamaica on a family holiday.

The host shouted "what" as he asked the player to clarify his age. Bradley praised the quizzer when he confirmed he was aged 54.

He added: "Seriously, you look well mate." Mervin couldn't resist the higher offer of £30,000 as he took one step closer to the Chaser.

However, the decision proved to be costly as he was eventually eliminated by Shaun. Val also progressed to the Final Chase and the two were competing for a total of £10,000.

They built up 13 steps but left empty handed when the Chaser caught them with 28 seconds remaining.
