The Chase fans were looking forward to tuning into another episode of the popular ITV programme at 5pm on Monday. So they were left disappointed to learn the show, which is hosted by Bradley Walsh, has been replaced by Lingo for the entire week. Many disgruntled viewers took to Twitter to vent their frustration over the schedule shake-up.

The Chase’s slot has been filled with the newest series of the word-based game Lingo for the week.

The quiz show is hosted by Good Morning Britain presenter Adil Ray, but The Chase’s fans were not impressed to see it return to screens.

@TheClaw01578121 fumed: “It’s 5pm and there’s no #TheChase on @ITV? What is this madness?”

Kevin Jones raged: “Bad move by @itv replacing #TheChase with #Lingo. Watch the viewers switch over to #Pointless.”

Carper added: “Stop the world, I want to get off…. No Chase #TheChase” (sic)

Jay Bee said: “Where the hell is #TheChase? I feel like I’m missing a member of my family at the dinner table! Come back Bradley! Where are yah!” (sic)

However, Richard Chester reminded viewers The Chase will be returning to its usual slot next week.

He stressed: “Those who are going nuts because #Lingo has replaced #TheChase should know it’s only for this week.

“Beat the Chasers is on all week at 9pm and ITV likely don’t want Chaser overkill so our Chaser fix is for then. Someone remind Adil Ray not to check Twitter for a week.”

@Rennoldson commented: “I’m guessing #TheChase not being on has something to do with #BeatTheChasers being on tonight? Fair enough, but why replace it with #Lingo?”

A new series of The Chase spin-off series Beat The Chasers will start at 9pm.
