The Chase: ‘Brad was in a full body CLENCH’ Anne Hegerty spills bizarre set story

Anne, also known as The Governess, is one of a team of incredibly clever chasers on the ITV programme, which is hosted by Bradley Walsh.

The chaser has now become a star outside of The Chase, having achieved a stint in the Australian jungle for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! last year.

Today Anne appeared on The Jeremy Vine Show on Channel 5 to discuss the reality of living with autism and how it affects her career.

The presenter couldn’t let Anne go without discussing one of her most popular projects, being one of the trivia-whiz villains on The Chase.

Smiling fondly at her memories on set for the programme, Anne giggled in response to Jeremy talking about her favourite moments.

Anne explained it involved Keith Allen in the celebrity edition of the programme.

Jeremy played the clip back, which saw Anne asking the actor if he ever gets called “Fat Lez” out on the street, and she joked people “shout” the same to her which elicited a roar of laughter from the studio.

But it was another clip compilation depicting some of the funniest innuendos on the show that prompted Anne to reveal what happened behind the scenes.

One question involved comedian Bradley, 59, asking what a German cartoon character was called.

I was trying so hard to keep it together

One of the options was “Dick Tingler,” which prompted the host to burst into laughter, whereas in another moment the answer to a question about German skiers was olympian Fanny Chmelar.

Jeremy spotted Anne’s giggled, exclaiming: “Oh you laughed there!” as he continued to play back the video.

“I did, I was trying so hard to keep it together,” Anne admitted as she reflected on the memory.

“There was this mildly amusing name,” the star continued. “And then we realised Brad had gone into this full body clench.

“It was five o’clock in the afternoon.

“And it’s completely inappropriate!” Anne declared.

“So that’s what’s going on,” the guest finally said, shaking her head at the show’s antics.

The chasers also include Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, Jenny Ryan and Paul Sinha.

This week saw the Dark Destroyer facing one of his most “difficult” days at the office yet, and the team managed to beat him on four out of seven pushbacks in the final chase.

The Chase continues tonight at 5pm on ITV.
