BRADLEY Walsh was gobsmacked after a The Chase contestant revealed a surprising connection to one of the Chasers.
Wednesday's instalment of the ITV gameshow saw four new players Neil, Sheila, Kate and Joe take on Mark Labbett AKA The Beast.
Before Neil started, Bradley was keen to find out who he would take to go up against.
The host couldn't believe his reason behind wanting to take on The Beast.

Bradley replied: "He did not. Was he really?!"

It comes after Bradley was left infuriated after a contestant answered a question about a well known fairytale incorrectly.
The host questioned: "'Be he alive, or be he dead, I'll grind his bones to make my bread' is a repeated line in which fairy tale?"
The correct answer, of course, was Jack and the Beanstalk – but player Neil was completely unaware of the famous line.
Bradley, who knew the answer was Jack and the Beanstalk, raged: "You've inexplicably put Little Red Riding Hood.
