The Chase’s Paul Sinha was forced to apologise to “one of the best players” the gameshow has ever seen.
Contestant Lindsay gave Paul a run for his money, leaving him so impressed by the 65-year-olds performance.
In Wednesday’s episode of the show, the former GP from Scotland dominated as he got nearly every question right in the final round.
He was guided to the final by host Bradley Walsh and was applauded by fans as he single-handily led his team, securing the most money and points.
Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “Lindsay is an absolute machine – one of the best contestants ever on The Chase.”
“Wow! It’s The Chase versus Lindsay. He absolutely smashed it and should be so proud,” a second penned.
And Paul was left gobsmacked by the contestant, telling him: “Lindsay, know whatever happens, now you are, undoubtedly, one of the best final chase players I have ever played.”
In a recent episode of The Chase, viewers were left gobsmacked this evening during a celebrity version of The Chase as the four contestants won a whopping £140,000.
Nicky Campbell, Colin Jackson, Anne Diamond and Josie Long had been up against Chasers Paul, Anne Hegerty, Mark Labbett and Jenny Ryan in head-to-heads.
After Nicky’s nail-biting Chase against Jenny, which saw him add over £70,000 to the pot despite only getting one question right in his cash builder round, they faced Shaun Wallace in the final round.
But it got off to a bad start for the Dark Destroyer, who passed on his very first question, which the celebs managed to get correct.
Because he was unable to be pushed back one step, the contestants were awarded with an extra one, meaning that Shaun needed to get 20 questions correct.
Yet, Shaun was left stumbling over a few questions – which were answered correctly by the celebrities – and ended up losing.
The stars were ecstatic as they were each awarded with £35,000 to go to their respective charities.
Despite losing, Shaun seemed very pleased for them as he said that their win was “thoroughly well deserved”.
