Chaser Shaun 'The Destroyer' Wallace has been accused of throwing a game on 'The Chase'

Chaser Shaun 'The Destroyer' Wallace has been accused of throwing a game on 'The Chase'

One of the quizmasters on The Chase has been accused of deliberately giving the wrong answers.

Shaun "the Destroyer" Wallace was having such a bad run of things on an episode which aired in the UK recently that host Bradley Walsh - and viewers - had to wonder if it was on purpose.

By the time they got to the end of the run with the final contestant, Lucie, Walsh was forced to ask: "Are you doing this deliberately?"

A visibly annoyed Shaun replied defensively: "No!"

And it wasn't just Walsh who noticed Wallace's extremely bad answers.

Fans took to Twitter to comment on his poor performance and accuse him of throwing the game because he "liked" Lucie.

One wrote: "How is Shaun getting these wrong against Lucie!!!"

While another simply wrote: "Shaun of the dead today", referencing the Simon Pegg-led zombie flick of the same name.

Viewers also lashed out at Walsh later in the same episode, after he refused to take an answer from Lucie in what some are calling "absolute robbery".

Lucie and two other players made it through to the final round to play for a massive £30,000 jackpot.

When Walsh asked: "What do Americans call a stroller?" Lucie answered, "A Pram".

However, Walsh deemed the answer incorrect, as the one he was looking for was "pushchair".

Fans on Twitter were not impressed with one calling the decision not to award the point "harsh".

"What the hell is the difference between a pram and a pushchair?" one wrote.

Another added: "Absolute robbery not giving Lucie a point for pram #thechase."

Other fans came to Walsh's defence, however, with one explaining: "Pram, child lies on back. Pushchair, child is seated."

Despite the contestants losing that point, they beat The Destroyer in the end and took home £10,000 each.
