The Chase's Bradley Walsh stunned as Shaun Wallace makes brutal dig – while fans are distracted by 'famous' player

THE CHASE host Bradley Walsh was left shocked after chaser Shaun Wallace took a savage swipe at him – while viewers spot a familiar face.

Mary, Chris, Thomas, and Tony were up against The Dark Destroyer AKA Shaun Wallace in Thursday's episode of the popular ITV quiz show.

Shaun told Bradley that the contestants names were a close relation to Merry Christmas.

The host admitted he didn't see that connection and he said: "I'm like a goldfish."

Shaun commented: "No you're not, a goldfish is intelligent."

An offended Bradley replied: "Shocking behaviour."

Fans were shocked by Shaun ruthlessness as one said: "Damn. Shaun didn't get what he wanted for Christmas to let Brad have it like that."

A second said: "Shaun, you're on a thin line… a very, very, thin line…."

Another wrote: "Oh wow. Shaun."

Meanwhile, viewers thought they a famous face as a contestant.

The 64-year-old retired civil servant Tony had a long white beard and hair which fans thought looked like Santa.

Bradley commented: "I love the hair and the beard!"

Tony admitted it took 30 years to grow.
