BEAT THE CHASERS viewers were left furious tonight when one contestant lost £50,000 for mispronouncing the RIGHT answer.
First up on the show was contestant Esnart who was doing pretty well until she stumbled over the correct answer but pronounced it in a different way than what host Bradley Walsh was expecting.

Project Manager Esnart appeared to respond with the correct answer during her quick-fire round but was denied a point by Bradley.
The first contestant was asked during her quick-fire round: “Everybody wants to be a cat is a song from what Disney film?”
Esnart replied with “aristocrats” – pronouncing it “a-wrist-o-crats” but Bradley said it was wrong and responded with his correct answer pronouncing it “the aristo-cats”.

Viewers were left fuming and rushed to Twitter to share their feelings.
One wrote: “esnart answered correctly… she just pronounced it differently!”
“Esnart was robbed blind on that Aristocats question. If I was her I’d be straight down citizens advice,” fumed another.
A third pleaded with the TV channel: “Come on @ITV Bring back Esnart.. She was robbed!!”
However, after watching again Esnart did indeed say “aristocrats” instead of “The Aristocats” – technically getting the answer wrong.
It was a night of money prizes on the show as three contestants all scooped prizes.
Ryan and Jennie each scored £10,000 and big winner Michael from Cowbridge in South Wales won a massive £50,000.
The business development manager told Bradley he planned on asking his partner to marry him and do some renovations to the house if he won.
