The Chase returned to our screens today with a new episode of the popular ITV quiz show.

Host Bradley Walsh welcomed a team of four contestants to the show this afternoon.

The cheeky presenter, 60, was eager to see them get through to the final with some money in-hand.

Anne "The Governess" Hegerty was in the hot seat on Friday trying to prevent the hopefuls from going home with the cash prize.

Simon, Angela, Karen and Ben all took it in turns to take on the cash builder and later went head-to-head with The Governess in an intense round of general knowledge questions.

ITV viewers were left scratching their heads as Simon told Bradley that he would spend his prize money on. a "life-size Tardis for the garden".

Taking to Twitter, one fan ranted: "A Tardis? Grow up man you're an adult."

Another viewer posted: "If he wins he wants a full size Tardis. God give me strength."

A third penned: "A full size Tardis?"

A fourth joked: Tardis in the garden = blue shed."

Anne couldn't help but take a swipe at host Bradley as the Doctor Who conversation continued.

The quiz champion joked: "I like Doctor Who but his companion is a bit dim."

Bradley played Graham O'Brien, the friend of Doctor Who, in the BBC One sci-fi drama for two years.

The TV star has since waved goodbye to his character after working with Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who.
