If you need something to brighten up your Saturday morning, this clip may just do the trick.

The Chase is one of the most popular quiz shows in the world.

While we have our own version here in Australia, the UK version is just as popular.

A vintage clip from the show is currently going viral on social media, with some fans calling it the funniest game show moment ever.

Bradley Walsh, who hosts the British version of the hit show, had the all-important task of asking contestants questions.

On this particular occasion, he could barely contain himself.

He asked: “In what sport does Fanny Chmelar compete for Germany?”

At first he contained himself, but it didn’t take long for him to burst into laughter.

Given that the name sounds slightly inappropriate, we don’t blame him!

The more he laughed, the more hilarious the contestant and audience found it.

Even Anne “The Governess” Hegerty struggled to contain herself.

At one point Walsh even burst into tears because he was laughing so hard.

“We’re gonna make a rule now, never say her name again,” he said between fits of laughter.

“I’d be straight down the court in the morning if that was my name. I’d have that changed straight away!”

The contestant eventually got the answer wrong, but it remains one of the show’s most hilarious moments.

The clip was shared by ITV (the station that airs the show in the UK) earlier this week and has already been viewed over 4.8 million times.

Fans couldn’t get enough of the clip and shared their comments online.

One fan wrote: “Every time I see this it cracks me up. It’s Bradley’s face trying not to laugh that does it.”

Another said: “Try and watch without crying … with laughter.”

A third added: “It was absolutely hilarious. He has a fantastic sense of humour. Even Anne (The Chaser) had tears coming out of her eyes.”
