Broadcaster Anne Diamond joined fellow celebs Colin Jackson, Nicky Campbell and Josie Long for a Christmas special of ITV’s The Chase on Thursday. As usual, Bradley Walsh was on hand to dish out the brainteasers but the festive special came with a difference as each celebrity would take on a different Chaser. When Anne stepped up to the table, she faced off against Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha – although it was a seeming “rule break” which left Bradley jokingly warning the journalist not to “cheat”.
Anne was up second during the festive edition of The Chase after watching Colin beat Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty in their head-to-head.
With £3,000 in the prize fund, Anne hoped to add the £4,000 she’d racked up in her cash-builder to the pot.
Clearly nervous about taking on Paul, Anne took to the table where Bradley got the quizzing underway.
However, as he read out the very first question Paul and Anne had to answer, he was abruptly interrupted by the celebrity contestant pressing her button early.
Bradley asked: “‘Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they’re rather stupid’ is a line in what Mary Poppins song?”
The Chase host then read aloud the possible answers: “A, Jolly Holiday. B, Sister Suffragette. C -“
But before he could read aloud the final option, Anne’s buzzer went off and the timer began.
“Chim Chim Cheree,” he eventually said before looking around the studio as the sound of the timer drowned him out.
The audience let out a giggle and after Paul locked in his answer, Bradley jokingly accosted Anne: “Don’t go cheating now because you’ve come up here all of a sudden.
“I’ve got to finish the question before you press the button,” he warned her as Anne apologised.
But Bradley’s telling off didn’t stop there as he continued to rant: “You don’t go pressing no button before I finish the question.
“You wait until I finish the question, I give all the alternative answers. You go pressing the button and put him under pressure,” Bradley rambled as Anne held her hand to her mouth and the ITV audience laughed aloud.

After their tongue-in-cheek confrontation, Anne had opted for B which turned out to be the correct answer and soon after, she joined Colin back at the table to prepare for the Final Chase.
Next up was comedian and author Josie who managed to rack up £5,000 in her cash-builder before taking on Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett.
However, Josie opted to go big and took on Mark for the higher offer of £60,000 – which she managed to bring home.
TV presenter Nicky Campbell was the final star to take on the cash-builder but was deflated to only get one question correct – meaning he’d only be taking £1,000 into his head-to-head with Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan.
However, Nicky followed in Josie’s footsteps and didn’t let his cash-builder performance dampen his spirits as he took on the higher offer of £73,000.
And it paid off as he beat Jenny and the team of four had £140,000 to play for in the Final Chase.
However, they’d have to beat Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace but gave themselves a fighting chance by racking up 19 steps in the final round.
When Shaun got his first question wrong, his target was extended to 20 steps and in the end, the Chaser fell short meaning each star had a whopping £35,000 to donate to their chosen charities.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
