BRADLEY Walsh is used to things getting heated on The Chase as the contestants battle it out to win as much money as they can for the team.
But today the 60-year-old host had to step in and defend a player against her angry team mates after she made a shock decision to take a “minus offer”.

Contestants who take this offer usually feel the wrath of viewers, but Bradley and Chaser Shaun Wallace pointed out it was the best thing to do.
Marcia was seen debating her decision, and whether to go with the low offer, when her teamate Kat said: “Yeah, I wouldn’t go for the minus, I think you could go for the 30 but otherwise go to the 4.”
“I wouldn’t take the minus offer, no point undoing all of Kat’s good work,” agreed fellow contestant Daniel.
Turning back around to face Bradley, Marcia said: “Bradley, they’ve done a lot of hard work, 30 is tempting, four, I think I just got there, so I am sorry but I am going to take the minus to try to get back there to help those guys.”

Her teammates looked annoyed as Bradley remarked: “There was a sharp intake of breathe from over there but I’ve got to say, that’s a wise decision.”
Chaser Shaun agreed: “I think you’ve made a wise move there.”
“Absolutely, 100%, there will need you in the final, all day long,” added Bradley.
Marcia then got through with £-3,000, and Bradley said: “Whatever you do, don’t turn around now.”

Shaun remarked: “I still think you made the right decision actually, because you getting back could be the difference between winning and not winning.”
“Keep your head down,” joked Bradley, as Marcia headed back to her teammates who graciously shook her hand.
