Bradley Walsh gobsmacked by Birmingham contestant’s age on ITV The Chase


The Chase host Bradley Walsh – and fans watching at home – were left gobsmacked by a Birmingham contestant’s age. Paul was up on the hit ITV quiz show with Angela, Gabe and Fiona on Thursday night (May 26).

The foster carer revealed he had retired from primary school teaching when he turned 60. Responding to Bradley’s shocked face, Paul said: “Yes, I’m 60.”

Bradley replied: “Crikey! You look well for 60 Paul.” Paul put his youthful looks down to a lifetime of playing sport.

He revealed he was a champion basketball player until his “knees got a bit weak”. He now plays a lot of tennis and golf.

Viewers at home couldn’t believe it as they said he looked much younger. They took to Twitter to comment.

@AbominableCris said: “I’m still coming to terms with Paul being 60…I can’t grasp it… #TheChase.” They added: “If Paul said he was 35 to 40, I would believe him! Honestly, I bet he still got asked for ID on his 40th birthday #TheChase.”
