Furious The Chase fans threaten Ofcom complaints after Bradley Walsh's 'insensitive' question to blind contestant | The Sun

FURIOUS fans of The Chase have threatened to complain to Ofcom after Bradley Walsh asked an 'insensitive' question to a blind contestant.

The popular ITV quiz show aired its latest episode this evening with Bradley, 62, back at the helm.


Four brand new contestants appeared on set ready to take on the chaser and win some cash.

They were Sue, Nick, Rob and Kathryn.

But viewers were left unhappy over the treatment of contestant Rob, who appeared with his guide dog.

He revealed how he was left blind at the age of 17 to Bradley and the studio audience.

And while he was facing the music he was asked a 'unfair' question by the presenter.

Walsh had asked him how many numbers a typical barcode has.

But fans slammed the host and show bosses for asking Rob as he cannot see.

Taking to social media, viewers vented their rage – while some threatened to inform TV watchdog Ofcom.

One said: "What a sh*t question to ask a blind man."

A second said: "Unfair of the question writers to ask a blind person how many numbers are on a barcode in the UK. Bit of a fix for the Chaser there."

"ITV knew exactly what they were doing, b*****ds," said a third.

While a fourth commented: "Surely he should've got a different question?"

Unfortunately for Rob he was eliminated from the competition with his adorable dog Bobby.

The Chase airs weekdays from 5pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
