ITV The Chase fans left stunned after contestant announces his age
Fans of The Chase have been left puzzled this evening after a seemingly youthful man revealed his true age.
Presenter Bradley Walsh often has viewers in stitches with his one liners with witty quips as well having banter with the contestants.
But every now and then viewers aren’t amazed by Mr Walsh, it’s the participant who catches their attention.

In fact, viewers were so surprised when beardy boy Ron revealed his age that they took to Twitter to share their views.
One wrote: “Did Ron say he was 84?! He looks far too young to be 84!! #TheChase.”
“I NEVER watch the Chase but landed on it by accident tonight. 84 year old laddie just absolutely smashed it…… that’s a game changer,” wrote another.
And a third gushed: “Ron on The Chase completely messed up our age game. I had him at 71, my wife 69. The collective scream when he said 84!”
But this wasn’t to be outdone by a fourth who wrote: “No way the guy on #TheChase is 84?!?! I had to rewind it to make sure I heard him correctly.”
But people also swooned over a “fit” contestant on tonight’s show.
When it came time for Oli to step up to the plate and answer some light trivia questions from host Bradley Walsh, Twitter could hardly contain its excitement.
“Oli is so beautiful,” read one impassioned tweet, “but he supports Arsenal so we can’t date sorry.”
“Oli is cute af,” read one tweet. (In case you were wondering, ‘af’ stands for ‘as f***’, which means the viewer thought he was very cute indeed).

Another gushed: “Hello to Oli on The Chase and Oli only.”
Sadly, however, Oli did not get off to a particularly flying start and fumbled on one of the early questions.
In one question, Bradley asked: “In the saying associated with bribery, which part of the hand is said to be greased?”
Oli answered: “Back.”
A bemused Bradderz corrected him, “Palm,” and later gently ribbed the contestant for his answers in classic Bradley Walsh fashion.
