Bradley Walsh gets red face from contestant on Beat The Chasers who claims he mocked her during his football years
Bradley Walsh was never normally one to keep quiet, but he was left stunned after a Beat The Chasers contestant claimed he mocked her during his younger days.
The 60-year-old TV host was having an introductory chat with a woman named Caroline about The Chase spin-off when he got a red face.
Speaking about herself at the start of the show, Caroline said, ‘I’m a project manager, but that’s not what I’ve always done. I used to work in football and you used to give me a stick. ‘
Baffled: Bradley Walsh got a red face from a contestant on Beat The Chasers who claimed he mocked her a few years ago
When the incredulous Bradley asked her when he mocked her, she replied that at one point she had worked as a physical therapist for the AFC Wimbledon team.
‘You used to tease me when I went out on the field. You said the player would be dead by the time I get there, ”she explained to Bradley.
With a shock to his face, Bradley apologized to Caroline, who won £ 30,000 in the competition, before continuing on the show.
In his younger years, Bradley played as a footballer for teams like Brentford and Barnet before ending his ankle injury at the age of 22.
Revelation: When asked when Bradley mocked her, Caroline said, “You used to tease me when I went out on the field. You said the player would be dead by the time I got there ‘
This isn’t the first time Bradley has been shocked while presenting.
He was also speechless after an IT technician who took part in the show was revealed as an 80s rock star.
Paul Hanley, 57, from Manchester, played drums in the rock band The Fall, before leaving in the 1980s, but now works as an IT technician.
In an episode on the ITV show, which first aired in August 2019 and rerun last month, viewers were shocked by the disclosure.
Founded in 1976, The Fall has been described as part of the post-punk movement.

‘I am an IT technician. I was a drummer before I was an IT technician, ”Paul explained on the show.
The host asked if Paul used to play on the road, to which the contestant replied, “Yes, a band called The Fall.”
Paul also explained why he left the band, saying that he hoped to achieve more success than The Fall had by starting his own band, and that he was now studying English literature at the Open University for pleasure.
The Fall, the band behind hits like Totally Wired and Hit the North, was formed in 1976 and released thirty-two studio albums between 1979 and 2017.
Speechless: Bradley was shocked to discover that one of his contestants on The Chase, Paul Hanley, 57, who appeared on the show in 2019, was a rock star with 1970s post-punk band The Fall.
The line-up of the band has changed drastically over the years. Paul, who was one of the band’s regular musicians, joined in March 1980.
It comes after Bradley was spotted wearing sideburns and a cardigan for his role in the remake of The Darling Buds Of May.
He was portrayed in character on set wearing a blue shirt, plaid tie and gray cardigan.
Bradley also wore the signature sideburns made famous by Sir David Jason, who played Pop Larkin in the original ITV series in the 1990s.
He held his jacket over his arm and what appeared to be a script in his hand as he meandered through the set of the show, which is filmed in the Croydon area.
