BEAT The Chasers host Bradley Walsh took a cheeky swipe at Chaser Shaun Wallace as he revealed he doesn’t “get on” with the ITV brainbox.
The frosty atmosphere was sparked in the first celebrity series of Beat The Chasers, with the subject of musicals the seemingly innocuous catalyst.

Shaun quickly retorted: “No,” something picked up by celebrity contestant Christine Ohuruogu, who commented: “That was a very quick.”
Bradley swiftly interjected: “We don’t get on,” as he left fans guessing about their relationship status.
The drama came about on Saturday night’s The Chase spin-off.
Bradley asked: “In the stage musical Oliver! who leads the song Consider Yourself?”

He added: “Directed by?” as Chaser Anne Hegerty said: “Carol Reed.”
Bradley, who appeared to be in a pedantic mood over the musical, clarified: “Sir Carol Reed.”
The panelists confirmed he was the uncle of Oliver Reed before the host, unable to let things lie, continued: “Indeed and the son of?”
