The Chase fans have been left unimpressed after Bradley Walsh enforced a "harsh" decision on a contestant on a recent episode of the game show.

Facing off against chaser Paul Sinha in the final round, Sally and Greg were hoping to win £11,000 before they were told by the much-loved host they had the wrong answer.

Walsh asked the Sinnerman: "Which woman is the MP for Mt Albert in New Zealand?"

The chaser then stumbled, answering "Julia Gil [Gillard], oh no," before realising he got the answer wrong.

Walsh then turned to the contestants asking them the same question.

To which Sally answered: "Jacinta Ardern."

But due to her mispronunciation, Walsh did not accept the answer.

"Sorry, I can’t give it to you. It’s Jacinda, not Jacinta," he stated.

Viewers took to social media to complain that Sally's answer should have been accepted.

One fan said: "BRADLEY .. that was not fair you should have given that answer Jacinta."

While another commented: "effssake Brad could be the way they pronounce it."

Someone else added: "I feel like not accepting Jacinta is harsh."
