Bradley Walsh was not happy with Anne Hegerty on Monday (Picture: ITV)Anne Hegerty uttered the dreaded words on The Chase on Monday afternoon: ‘I’ll have to look it up.’
It prompted host Bradley Walsh to kick off at The Governess as she admitted that her knowledge of sausages, of all things, was sadly lacking.
Bradley was left exasperated when he pushed one of the questions back on Chaser Anne, asking her what the word ‘sausage’ meant.
She sassily said: ‘A sausage is a tube of skin with mincemeat in the middle.’
Unfortunately, Anne was stumped by a question about sausages (Picture: ITV)He replied: ‘I know what a sausage is! But where does the word come from? Saucisson?’
That’s when Anne admitted that she was utterly stumped by the question, answering: ‘I really don’t know. I’ll have to look it up.’
Getting increasingly frustrated, Bradley ranted: ‘What is the point of you being a Chaser if you don’t know this stuff?
‘This is the stuff you’re supposed to know, never mind how many billions of stars or whether the world’s circumference is the same length as your neck.’
Bradley was left puzzled following a question asking which country had recently banned meat-related words for vegetarian substitutes.
Both The Chaser and the contestant guessed correctly that the country in question was France.
Former I’m A Celebrity contestant Anne is one of the original Chase stars, who’s been with the show since 2010 and also regularly appears on the Australian version.
However, Anne admitted last week that she was recently threatened with suspension from the ITV game show for answering back.
The Chaser revealed that she got a slap on the wrists for clapping back at a troll on Twitter, and was ordered to take her reply down.
