The Chase’s Bradley Walsh comforts player as she loses out on £65,000 jackpot

Monday's instalment of The Chase (May 30) saw host Bradley Walsh attempt to comfort one of the contestants after they missed out on the chance to add a huge amount of money to the jackpot.

After welcoming four new players to the show, it was time for the hopefuls to try and win some cash.

Although things got off to a rocky start, it quickly turned with two players making it through to the final chase against Anne "The Governess" Hegerty.

However, one finalist couldn't help but show her frustration when she blew the chance to bring back £65,000.

The first player to face Anne was Chris, and although he managed to get £7,000 in the cash builder, he was unable to defeat Anne at the table.

Then it was time for Callum to play for the team but again, he was sent home by The Chaser.

Challenged with the task of trying to win the first spot in the final was player Sue.

Thankfully, she managed to add £5,000 to the jackpot which left the final player Emily to face Anne.

Showing she was a good player in the cash builder round, she managed to earn £6,000.

Although when she was given multiple offers to play for, Bradley asked Sue to advise her on which one she should pick.

Sue gave Emily her blessing to take the low offer saying: "I need you here, it's up to you.”

To which the player told Bradley: "I think as Sue said she needs me back and I need her as much so for that reason I’m going to go for £1,000."

Agreeing with her choice, Anne told the player it was "very important" for her to get back to be with Sue in the final.

However, after she sailed through the head-to-head she quickly regretted the lower offer as she could've added £65,000 to the jackpot.

When there was only one question left to answer, and three spaces between her and Anne, Emily said: "£65,000, Bradley!”

After she beat Anne and got a place in the final alongside Sue, Bradley tried to comfort the player on her choice.

He said: “I know but you know what? You look at the last three head to heads, two went out and Sue was down to the wire.

“Sometimes it’s the way it works so how do we know?”

Emily told him she was "happy with it" with Bradley agreeing with her.

He replied: "It’s great, you’re through, two is better than one that’s for sure.”

Although viewers watching at home were also frustrated with her decision to go low with one saying it was "disappointing".

One viewer tweeted: “She will be kicking herself for a while after that. Should have gone high.”

Another added: “She had her mind made up to go low from the start. Why bother applying for The Chase if that's all you're going to do?”

A third wrote: “Sigh. I should've known there'd be a robbery here.”

“Low offer disappointing,” another simply noted.

Despite getting 14 points in the final chase, it wasn't enough to outsmart Anne and the girls went home empty handed.

The Chase continues weekdays on ITV at 5pm
