What never gets old? Bad answers in game shows.

The Chase had another one on Tuesday's (April 11) episode, when a contestant was asked a seemingly straightforward question.

"Which footballer inspired the media nickname of 'Beckingham Palace'?" host Bradley Walsh asked.

The answer is, of course, David Beckham. But whether the poor guy's mind went blank (which would be understandable), or maybe he hadn't heard of Becks before (which would be slightly more surprising), he struggled under the spotlight.

"Beckingham?" he answered.

Some viewers at home were shocked that the contestant got the question a tiny bit wrong.

Earlier this week, Bradley Walsh explained that the reason why he may appear 'drunk' on The Chase is because of an eye condition he has.

"People don't realise I have seriously bad blepharitis," he said on This Morning. "I have to take [one pill] a day for it or I really struggle. I am going to need my eyes operated on at some point to sort it out.

"So many times, people have commented on [how I look]. But they don't realise. If I take [medication] though, I'm fine."
