‘Crikey that’s funny’: The Chase host in hysterics over X-rated question

No television host is known for their infectious laugh more than UK personality Bradley Walsh, whose regular hysterical outbursts on ITV quiz show The Chase regularly leave viewers in stitches.

And the Doctor Who star was at it again this week when a rather suggestive question caught him off guard, leaving him struggling to speak and barely able to complete the question.

Over the years, Walsh has cracked up over countless questions relating to the likes of German Olympian Fanny Chmelar and aerialist Erendira Wallenda. This time, however, it was 19th century composer William Crotch who set Bradley off.

“Nineteenth century composer William Crotch was also famous as a player of what instrument?” the question read, with contestant Roger asked to choose from three options; the oboe, bagpipes or organ.

Giggling uncontrollably, Walsh barely managed to read out all three options before Chaser The Beast and Roger had selected their answers.

The television star then turned to the player and said: “That is absolutely priceless. Oh crikey, that’s funny, eh Rog?”

To which the deadpan contestant replied: “Well it’s a little bit funny, yes.”

It’s far from the first time that Walsh has been left in tears and unable to stem his laughter on the hugely popular ITV show. Back in November Walsh had a similar episode on air, when a question about aerialist Erendira Wallenda cropped up.

The 58-year-old — who hosts the UK version of the show, which also runs in Australia — was left struggling to speak after seeing the three answers pop up on his screen and realising he’d have to read out an X-rated third option to stern Chaser Anne Hegerty and the contestant.

The question was: “In 2017, aerialist Erendira Wallenda set a record by dangling from a helicopter over the Niagara Falls by her what?”

While it seemed innocent enough, the answer options were anything but, as they read: “Teeth, thumbs, knicker elastic.”
