Bradley Walsh was baffled today when a contestant from The Chase revealed what she plans to do with her cash prize.
Four new players appeared on the popular ITV game show and took on Chaser Mark Labbett in a bid to win thousands of pounds.
Lindsay, a 54-year-old substitute teacher from North Yorkshire, was the first to face The Beast.

Host Bradley asked Lindsay about what she plans to do with the money she could make on tonight’s show.
She said: “We have a holiday home in East Germany and at the moment we have a septic tank, but we are putting it on the main feed so I would like to earn some money for it.”
Bradley gave a confused look before joking, “Yeah, that makes perfect sense.”
Fans of the show agreed with the host and all made the same point on Twitter that the country had not been called East Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Bev said, “East Germany? How long has it been since this was shot?
India commented: “Holiday home in East Germany? “
Victoria added: “I had to google East Germany and it’s not known like that anymore, so I bet she offended some people.”
Debz tweeted: “Someone told him the Berlin Wall fell over 30 years ago.”
Another user defended the candidate and attributed the error to a slip: “All that was missing was ‘of’, I guess she meant East Germany.”
Lindsay racked up £ 6,000 in the cash builder and made it back to the final pursuit.
The chase continues tomorrow at 5 p.m. on ITV and ITVHub
