Bradley Walsh has claimed that lawyers have been forced to ‘intervene’ on set during some episodes of The Chase.
The TV presenter revealed to the Radio Times that legal experts have gotten involved with the show if he ever ‘fumbles over words’.
He explained: “If there is a slight misread, I am stopped immediately – bang – by the lawyers.

“We have the compliance lawyers in the studio all the time. What you have to do is go back to the start of the question, literally on videotape where my mouth opens – or where it’s closed from the previous question – and the question is re-asked.
“It is stopped to the split second. It means no time is lost for either the contestant or the Chaser.”
Walsh also claimed that lawyers like to keep an eye on the pace at which he talks, adding: “You have to be at such a speed: if you’re a contestant and I go ‘what’s… the capital… of France… ’ they’d be dead and buried in thirty seconds.
“I have to make sure they get up to speed and they’re getting about 18 or 19 questions answered correctly.”
The 61-year-old said that when asking contestants questions, it takes him ‘between 3.6 and 4 seconds’. In the total two minutes that they have, past participants have managed to answer up to ’24 to 25 questions’.
Recently, one contestant made history on the show by having its ‘biggest ever win’.
The 20-year-old player, named Eden, managed to scoop up a whopping £75,000 in prize money.
At the time, Walsh said: “I can’t believe it! This is incredible, he’s 20 years old and just won £75,000.
“It’s the single highest win in daytime history.”
