There's no denying The Chase brings a lot of laughter into the homes of millions around the world ...

But a recent episode of the show had fans in absolute hysterics after a contestant shared a little too much about her job.

Before facing off against chaser Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty, Sandy was interviewed by host Bradley Walsh about her life.

When asked by Walsh what she did for a living, the 54-year-old admitted that she had a "variety" of jobs around the country, but explained to viewers that her main job was as a teacher, before adding: "I do teaching alongside the job I do now as a mystery shopper."

"I basically make loads of phone calls to government departments, banks and offices," she explained.

"To see if they’re following regulations and then I write a report."

Astounded viewers flooded social media to laugh at Sandy's faux-pas, with one writing: "Mystery shopper on #TheChase. That’s your cover blown, love."

"A mystery shopper going on TV is a bit like James Bond telling everybody he's a spy. #TheChase," added another.

• The Chase's Mark 'The Beast' Labbett reveals the health issue behind his dramatic weight loss

One joked: "'I'm Sandy, I'm 54 and I'm a mystery shopper from Nottinghamshire.' Not anymore you're not, love!"

Mystery shoppers, after all, are supposed to be a mystery – right?

However, one fan of the show did try to remind people that "she does it over the phone" and not face-to-face.

Poor Sandy!
