The Chase viewers have slammed the show for asking a blind contestant a question about the colour of a snooker ball. 

Josh, an astrophysics student, appeared on the ITV programme on Monday evening. 

The host, Bradley Walsh, asked him: “At the start of a snooker frame, which ball is placed furthest from the player?’

Watch the moment The Chase contestant is asked the ‘unfair’ question in the clip below…

His three choices were pink, black, or blue. He incorrectly answered pink, with the chaser Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett choosing the right answer, black.

Moments later, Josh was asked: “In December 2019, which of these was a piece of art priced at around 120,000 dollars at Art Basil, Miami beach?”

The student admitted he had no idea what the right answer was, with it later being revealed it was a banana taped to a wall. 

While some viewers acknowledged the questions are allocated randomly, others weren’t happy that exceptions weren’t made for him.

Many took to Twitter to complain and said it was ‘hard to believe’ what had just happened. 

One person commented: “Bit unlucky/not thought through that @ITVChase had a visual question for someone who is blind.”

Another added: “He’s blind and he gets three questions where he’d have to know what something looks like.”

While a third wrote: “Hard to believe but #TheChase just asked a blind man a question on the coloured balls of snooker, visual art, and bioluminescence. I really hope it’s a random selection.

In the end, Josh was caught by The Chaser and eliminated before the last round, with just two contestants left for the Final Chase. 

However, he was praised for giving it his best shot.
