Beat the Chasers was back again after Monday's eagerly-anticipated first episode and it certainly proved a real treat for viewers.
A spin-off from popular teatime quiz show The Chase, Beat the Chasers sees contestants from across the UK take on a team of five Chasers – Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan, Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty, Shaun 'The Dark Destroyer' Wallace, Mark 'The Beast' Labbett and Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha – in order to win big money prizes.
Plus, of course, host Bradley Walsh is on hand to read the questions and deliver a few cheeky jokes, as always.
But the quote of the night came when Anne made a very NSFW comment, claiming to a contestant who plays American football that she has "been described as a wide receiver" after previously being a "tight end".
That comment certainly didn't go unnoticed by viewers:
18-year-old student Travis won viewers' hearts as he turned up in a Hawaiian shirt and revealed a love for random facts, like the name for the study of flags (vexillology, if you're interested).
Travis also jokingly insulted Bradley, claiming that the new series of Doctor Who wasn't so great.
Viewers had a lot to say about his cheeky attitude, with some suggesting that he reminded them of a certain Loose Woman, Stacey Solomon:

One contestant who didn't fare so well was retired teacher Dot, who was sent packing almost immediately when she got the very first question wrong after not knowing what colour Aperol is (she'd never heard of the drink).
It was a pretty shocking moment for viewers:
If you dont know what an aperol spritz is you deserve to be out 😂 #BeatTheChasers— Tom Halligan (@Tomhalligan1991) April 28, 2020
I think it's a bit harsh to lose people for getting their first (and thus only) question wrong. #beatthechasers— Peter Scandrett (@proogs) April 28, 2020
But the most exciting moment of all came when final contestant of the night Anna – who claims to have been on a date with Olympian Eddie the Eagle – managed to beat all five Chasers and win herself £50,000, thanks to an incorrect answer about cartoon Rugrats from the Chasers.
She declared that she was so excited that she needed a cup of tea – and viewers were pretty thrilled, too:
Beat the Chasers continues tomorrow night (April 29) at 9pm on ITV.
