Bradley Walsh looking serious on The Chase

The Chase viewers asking questions about Bradley Walsh’s voice: ‘What’s happened?’

"What on earth is going on?"

The Chase host Bradley Walsh left viewers in a tizz yesterday thanks to his “different” voice.

Brad was back for another episode of the ITV game show as the team – consisting of Pam, Lee, Sam and Judith – took on Chaser Paul Sinha – aka The Sinnerman.

But it wasn’t the questions, nor the contestants, that left viewers talking on social media. It was actually Brad’s voice!

As Bradley introduced the team and got cracking with The Chase, viewers’ comments about his voice came flowing in on X – formerly Twitter.

One person said: “What’s happened to Bradley’s voice?? Or is there something wrong with my TV??”

Another asked: “What on earth is going on with Bradley Walsh’s voice? Sounds like a totally different bloke haha.”

Someone else tweeted: “Anyone else watching The Chase? Is it me or is Bradley’s voice completely different?”

Meanwhile, another added: “Hahaha what is the [bleep] is going on with Bradley’s voice?!”

However, Bradley’s voice wasn’t addressed. Instead, the show continued and the team went up against The Sinnerman.

Only Lee and Judith made it back for the final chase with a total of £9,000 in the prize pot. They bagged 14 steps ahead of the Chaser.

Bradley told them they would need some pushbacks to give them a chance of winning.

However, The Sinnerman was on top form last night and beat the team with 43 seconds remaining.

Speaking to the Mirror, Mark, aka The Beast, said: “Our biggest worry is Bradley being 63 now. Every month, we’re going, ‘You okay, Brad? How’s the health?’ Wrap him in bubble wrap! He’s so damn popular you’re more worried about what he signed up for now.”
