Chase fans mock Olympic Champ’s horrendous gaffe
OLYMPIC taekwondo champion Jade Jones has been mocked on Twitter after claiming that London was a country on the celebrity version of The Chase.
The gold medal winner appeared on the quiz alongside singer Paul Young, Strictly dancer Aljaz Skorjanec and comedian Arthur Smith.
All four contestants went up against Dark Destroyer Shaun Wallace and only Jade and Aljaz made it through to the final chase.
But the pair faired abysmally, and viewers were quick to poke fun at Jade for giving a wrong answer.
It came after quiz host Bradley Walsh asked: “The Pixar film Brave is mainly set in which UK country?”
Jade buzzed in and shouted “London” but she was corrected by Brad, who told her it was Scotland.
And viewers on Twitter couldn’t believe she said that the capital city was a country.
Matt wrote: “I think this may possibly be the worst final chase in history. Brave was set in which UK country? London. Give me strength #TheChase.”
CeCe tweeted: “‘What UK country is the film BRAVE set in?’ ‘London?’ I literally feel like 5,000 brain cells have died watching that! #TheChase”
Grant said: “What country is Brave set in? She said London #TheChase.”
While Catherine added: “The Disney Pixar film Brave is set in which UK country?” London.” Nice. #TheChase”
But her bad luck didn’t stop there, as Jade and Aljaz only managed to get five answers in the whole of the final chase.
And fans pointed out that the score must be the worst ever in the history of the show.
One wrote on Twitter: “Never seen such a low score in the final round on #TheChase. This pair make #LoveIsland look like Mastermind.”
But Jade later made fun of herself by posting on Twitter: “Ima stick to taekwondo.”
