The Chase's rigging scandal

Fans of The Chase have cried 'fix' after the on-screen clock appeared to slow-down in the dying seconds of a quick-fire question round on Wednesday's show - allowing the Chaser to claim victory.  

Chaser Anne Hegerty - dubbed The Governess - was pitted against a team of two contestants who had made it to the final Chase having built up a £60,000 prize pot and a score of 20.  

The cash was theirs so long as Anne was unable to match their score - but the Chaser managed to draw level with moments to spare, leaving players Peter and Warjinder to go home empty handed. 

But viewers have claimed the timer was deliberately slowed down to give Anne time to chime in with an extra answer and hold back the prize money, with one insisting: '1 second lasted 3 seconds.'

A clip of the final round posted on Twitter has been shared thousands of times, with fans claiming the result had been 'rigged'. 

One viewer asked Hegerty to explain what had happened, and she admitted that the scene had been reshot, but she did beat the team fairly.

Anne defended the clip on Twitter, admitting that the scene had been shot but the outcome hadn't been tampered with
