Bradley Walsh was forced to step in and tell off Emmerdale star Louisa Clein on a soap-heavy edition of The Chase: Celebrity special.

The cheeky host welcomed four beloved soap stars to the gameshow on Sunday night (July 31) for a special celebrity version of The Chase – a re-run episode.

Emmerdale stars Louisa Clein, Anthony Quinlan, Dominic Brunt and James Moore were the four celebrities hoping to win some cash for charity.

However, it was clear Bradley wasn't best pleased with Louisa, who plays Maya Stepney on the ITV soap.

It all kicked off when the actress tried to justify her way of picking the answer to one of Bradley's questions, but her method was rather unorthodox and Bradley felt she wasn't playing by the rules.

After Anthony tried his luck with the chaser, it was Louisa's turn – who was doing brilliantly until Bradders asked her a question about how she selected an answer.

After being posed the question: "How many elements were in the first periodic table drawn up in 1869?"

The answers on offer were 43, 63 and 83.

Louisa was quick on the button and selected answer B, which was 63.

Bradley then exclaimed how "easy" the question was, before asking Louisa: "Why did you pick that?"

She then replied honestly with: "Because it was in the middle."

The much loved host then slammed the soap star and said: "That's not how it works."

Louisa ended up getting the question correct and was then through to the next round.

She ended up heading back to her colleagues after banking £6,000, which was combined with Anthony's £5,000.

Tom was then soon joining his pals with a healthy £5,000 – taking their joint total to £16,000.

This episode of the popular gameshow first aired in September 2020, with it being repeated again earlier this year.
