Chase host Bradley Walsh cautioned a contestant on the show last night (August 2).
At the same time, he also made a cheeky fling on the ITV2 reality show Love Island.
Of course, although the dating show’s finale aired the night before, The Chase is filmed well in advance – so Bradley didn’t know how timely his remark might have been.
Bradley Walsh warns about The Chase
On Tuesday’s episode of The Chase, Bradley welcomed Jan, Ellie, Roddy and Phil to the show.
They competed against The Governess, aka Anne Hegerty.
And when college student Ellie took to the podium to face Anne, a question about Love Island surfaced.

Bradley asked her: “Which reality dating show had more applications than Cambridge University in 2017?
We’re back in my territory now — I know what I’m talking about with reality dating shows.
“A) Love Island, B) First dates, C) Celebs going out.”
Ellie explained that when it comes to dating shows, she knows what she’s talking about.
She told the host: “We’re back in my territory now – I know what I’m talking about with reality dating shows.”
Bradley didn’t seem too impressed, however.
“Sad indictment for British youth”
He looked a little disappointed as he told her, “I think I might be okay with this one.”
He then added wildly: “That’s a sad indictment for British youth, isn’t it?”

However, Ellie was quick with her comeback.
“Well, you win money on Love Island, not so much at university,” she said.
Bradley warns – and viewers agree
Ellie actually got the question right, but it resulted in a warning from Bradley – one that viewers at home agreed with.
The host instructed the young woman not to give up her education for fame.
“Bradley says how it is on Love Island #TheChase,” said one viewer.
Another agreed: “Getting rid of a Love Island viewer can only ever be a good thing #TheChase.”
