The Chase fans make savage dig at Kay Burley as she gets politics question wrong
The Chase was back on our screens on Christmas Day and fans of the ITV quiz show were left gobsmacked as journalist Kay Burley got a politics question wrong.
Host Bradley Walsh welcomed Kay, Richard Herring, Tim Lovejoy and Eniola Aluko onto the ITV quiz show for a celerity special as they tried to win big money for their chosen charities.
Sunday Brunch host Tim was sent packing during his head-to-head round against chaser Anne "The Governess" Hegerty and suspended Sky News presenter Kay was the second contestant to play The Chase.
Viewers at home couldn’t help but mock at Kay when she answered a politics question incorrectly.
Presenter Bradley asked: "How many times was Margaret Thatcher reelected as Prime Minister?"
Kay confidently answered: "Three".
However, the answer to the question was incorrect as Bradley announced the correct answer was in fact "twice".
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "She didn’t know Thatcher was elected twice?"
A second social media user posted: "For an international journalist who covers global political stories and interviews international politicians, Kay Burley sure doesn't know anything about current events. She even got the Thatcher question wrong. How did she get her job?"
While a third added: "Kay Burley is not bad at this quizzing lark even though she got the Thatcher question wrong shocking
"Got to laugh when Kay Burley gets the politics question wrong," a fourth person added.
Despite the major mishap up on the Thatcher question, Kay managed to build up £8,000 in the cash builder round.
As she took on chaser Mark "The Beast" Labbett, she chose to gamble and play for £60,000.
She managed to outrun the Chaser and made it back home and dry with her teammates Eniola and Richard, who also won their rounds.
Kay’s appearance on The Chase comes after she was suspended from Sky News for breaking lockdown restrictions earlier this month whilst celebrating her 60th birthday.
After an internal review, the TV star agreed to a suspension of six months while political editor Beth Rigby and correspondent Inzamam Rashid agreed to be off air for three months.
The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm
