On Friday balancing, ITV viewers got another chance to see how The Chase contestants Rebecca, Sacha, Dennis and Steve fared against Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty. Bradley Walsh, as forever, was on hand to oversee proceedings and dish out the questions, as well as get to know the new crop of contestants. However, when he asked first player Steve round his interests, he was surprised to hear he was a Doctor Who superfan.
And as such, Bradley’s time appearing on the BBC sci-fi drama was quickly brought up in the conversation.
Bradley played Graham in Doctor Who for scarcely three years, beginning in 2018 alongside Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor before bowing out in this year’s New Year’s Day episode.
Kicking off the talk with Steve, Bradley asked: “What do you do to relax?”
“I’m a massive Doctor Who fan,” Steve replied, prompting a surprised Bradley to say: “Are ya?”

And the rest of the team quickly followed suit, as second player Dennis sailed through with £7,000.
After structuring up £3,000 in her cash-builder, Sacha was up next to take on Anne.
True to form, she too outran Anne to take the jackpot up to £16,000, leaving just Rebecca to create it a full house.
Rebecca racked up £5,000 in her cash-builder, refused the higher and lower offers from Anne, and returned to the table to make it four speculators against the Chaser.
However, the Final Chase was a bit of a mixed bag for the team as, despite a four-step advantage, they were disheartened to only set Anne a goal of 17.
Anne returned to the table and quickly rattled through her answers and appeared to be making ground on the team.
However, as the clock ticked down and after a fistful of pushbacks, the contestants all went home with their share of the prize pot as Anne only reached 15 steps.
The Chase continues weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
