The Chase celebs branded 'pitiful' and 'pathetic'


Charlie Brooks and Shappi Khorsandi felt the sharp tongue of Twitter after floundering over some rather simple questions on the latest episode of The Chase.

The pair, and fellow celebrity contestants Richard Whitehead and David Dickinson, were branded "pitiful" after they struggled to get much right at all.

Poor Charlie didn't seem to know that mixing red and yellow paint would produce orange (she went with... green), and she wasn't on top of her S Club back catalogue either.

Shappi didn't fare much better, confusing Oxford for a country when she was asked where the fictional Harry Potter school of Hogwarts was based.

David got into a bit of a pickle when quizzed about bacon - the former Bargain Hunt star was left scratching his head when he had to identify what cured, smoked and sliced pork was called.
