THE CHASE viewers were left stunned when a contestant failed to correctly answer which bird the McVitie’s chocolate biscuit is named after.
Quiz fanatics also questioned flight attendant Andy’s age after he claimed to be 49 years old.
After telling Bradley Walsh about meeting Victoria Beckham and Olivia Newton-John while travelling the world in the air, Andy put his knowledge to the test with the quickfire round.
Stumbling at the first hurdle, he was asked the question: “What McVitie’s chocolate biscuit is named after a flightless bird?”
Andy’s teammates could be seen holding in their laughter as he offered up the dodo as an answer.
Despite this blunder, Andy went on to land £5,000 when facing The Beast in the next round.
Several viewers questioned Andy’s age in a string of humorous tweets.
One put: “I think Andy lied about his age on his application for The Chase.”
Another joked: “Andy on The Chase is the same age as me – wtf happened to him? Just saying.”

Even The Chase’s official Twitter account got in on the action, writing: “@McVities any chance of changing the name of Penguins to Dodos?”
Viewers also flocked to social media to mock Andy for his answer.
One put: “Love a chocolate Dodo!”
Another viewer asked: “How do these people get through life?”
A third teased: “Andy was already 49 when the Dodo went extinct!”
