The Chase's Bradley Walsh stunned as Shaun Wallace makes brutal dig – while fans are distracted by 'famous' player

THE CHASE host Bradley Walsh was left shocked after chaser Shaun Wallace took a savage swipe at him – while viewers spotted a familiar face.

An offended Bradley replied: "Shocking behaviour."

Fans were shocked by Shaun ruthlessness as one said: "Damn. Shaun didn't get what he wanted for Christmas to let Brad have it like that."

A second said: "Shaun, you're on a thin line… a very, very, thin line…."
