Bradley Walsh was in disbelief at a question that Shaun Wallace got wrong in today’s episode of The Chase.
Four new contestants tested their wits against The Dark Destroyer in a bid to win a cash prize in the latest edition of the popular ITV game show
But Chaser, 61, did not look as usual during the first face-to-face with dance teacher Shelagh.

Shelagh was playing for £ 4,000 when Bradley asked the show’s first question: “Which of these totals is more?
The three options were “inches in a foot, tens in a rough and pounds in a stone” – and Bradley couldn’t believe it when the contestant and the hunter went with the second option.
The correct answer is actually pounds in a stone because it is fourteen while the other measures are both twelve.
As The Dark Destroyer tried to explain, Bradley joked, “And only a dozen bits of gray matter in your head.”

Viewers took to Twitter to express their disbelief as to how The Chaser went wrong on such a simple question:
One user said, “Mark really needs to talk to Shaun about his math! #thechase “
Another added: “14 pounds in a stone. Shaun puffs up his lines from the start. #TheChase”
A third tweeted: “Thrown the fiery horn question !!! #thechase”
It turned out to be a momentary incident as the hunter recovered to catch Shelagh and 31-year-old occupational therapist Holly in the one-on-one rounds.
Daniel, a Darlington greenkeeper, brought home £ 7,000 and was joined by Norman, 72, with £ 1,000 meaning the contestants were playing for £ 8,000 combined in the final pursuit.
But the 13 steps they built didn’t turn out to be enough – as Shaun Wallace caught up with them with 53 seconds left, meaning they went home empty-handed.
The Chase airs weekdays from 5 p.m. on ITV and ITVHub
