The Chase player fumes at teammate after she takes minus offer on ITV show

The Chase turned awkward when one player took a minus £1,000 offer on the ITV show – and her teammate appeared to be fuming at her choice.

The popular ITV game show, hosted by Bradley Walsh, returned on Wednesday night (March 16) with players Kat, Malcom, James and Jill.

However, tensions seemed to rise in the studio when Kat took the minus offer from Chaser Shaun Wallace, also knows as The Dark Destroyer, and her teammate James looked far from pleased back at the table.

Minus offers are known as a low-risk move which often proves unpopular with viewers.

Kat only managed to rack up £2,000 in her cash-builder round, so she decided to opt for the minus offer in the hopes it would increase her chances of making it to the Final Chase.

Revealing the moment Kat made it through to the final, host Bradley said: "You are through to the final. Now, let me tell you this. You'd have had one go at £2,000…."

He clearly spotted her teammate James wasn't happy with her decision, because he went on: "However, despite James' gaze boiling holes into the back of your head, let me tell you. If you beat the chaser by one, you're in. SImple as that."

Bradley then cringed as she walked back to greet James and Malcom, who had both already made it to the Final Chase.

Laughing, Bradley said: "James!", before quipping: "Off the Christmas card list…"

Shaun said: "Looks like it."

James did see the funny side of it, though, because he smiled at Bradley's comment and shook Kat's hand when she returned to the table.

Fans certainly picked up on the awkward moment between the two teammates, and they talked about it on Twitter.

One fan wrote: "James is FUMING."

A second said: "Nah James is fuming" as they attached a laughing-face emoji.

A third agreed: "Almost hard to watch! James not a happy chappy. I only turned on when Kat was being chased, and saw they only had £6k at that point. So James can't have done that well himself…."

A fourth commented: "James' face when she took the minus offer"

A fifth added: "James' face" with a cringing emoji.
