The Chase viewers slam player who makes cheeky ‘fat shaming’ dig at Mark Labbett

Thursday's episode of The Chase saw a player seemingly make a "fat-shaming" jibe at chaser Mark Labbett.

Adam, 21, told host Bradley Walsh that he wanted to take on Paul Sinha, but instead it was The Beast who appeared on the popular quizzing show.

Bradley asked him how he felt about playing against The Beast, to which Adam said: "I'd rather take on the Sinnerman that the sugar man."

Mark shot back saying: "Not anymore."

Walsh defended his co-star, as he said: "He's off the sugar."

Viewers felt the player's banter was a bit of a "low blow".

One tweeted: "The Sugarman… bit of a low blow that, what is with contestants being arrogant and full of unfunny banter, just be nice and humble! #TheChase."

While another wrote: "The Beast is off the sugar, so f*** you, Adam!"

"The sugar man? Sh**e patter mate #TheChase", penned a third.

One viewer enjoyed the moment however, saying: ""Love the Trash Talk", with a laughing face emoji.
