The Chase viewers furious as contestant takes an offer of just £1 from Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty

THE Chase viewers were incensed today after a contestant accepted an offer of £1 from The Governess, Anne Hegerty.

People at home thought it was just as bad as taking a minus offer when contestant Sophie, who banked just £1,000 for the team, opted to play on for a quid.

Sophie had a nightmare when she only answered one question right in the cash builder and quickly lost her confidence.

She snapped up Anne’s sympathy offer that would give her a fighting chance to get back to the team for the final chase.

But viewers had little sympathy, as one said: “No, don’t take the quid, what pointless amount!”

Another said: “Playing for a quid! What a melt.”No! Never go for the low offer. Not fair on team mates! #TheChase £1???”

After accepting the offer, Sophie was able to shake off The Governess and returned to help her team.

Unforgiving Anne had her eye on the win

But it made no difference as Anne knew she could catch them – wiping them out in just 30 seconds.

Earlier this week, another contestant risked the wrath of viewers by accepting a minus offer.

Gemma was offered £4,000, £6,000 or £56,000 by Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan but opted to knock four grand off her team’s total instead.

Gemma had bagged £6,000 in the cash builder, and left most viewers bemused by her decision.

Gemma and James were beaten and ended up leaving with nothing

However, some backed her strategy, despite it chipping away at their £24,000 cash pile.

One tweeted: “It’s totally the right decision. You forget #TheChase is a game, not a moral challenge. Do whatever it takes to win.”

In the end The Chase contestants were caught by The Vixen after a tricky final round with 34 seconds left on the clock.
