Beat The Chasers star Paul Sinha explained a conundrum on tonight’s ITV show, after fans took to Twitter to complain that the answers the The Chase stars gave were correct and not wrong.
Paul Sinha explained a “brutal” question from Dirty Dancing on tonight’s Beat The Chasers.
Fans took to Twitter to complain about a question that popped up on the ITV show on tonight’s special, when The Chasers brought home a string of hopes for the proposed big cash prize.
Tonight’s last hope, Steven, beat The Chasers by picking three of them for a chance to win the £25,000 prize, but fans were left baffled when Bradley Walsh considers Paul’s answer incorrect.
“Patrick Swayze’s movie became the musical of the West End…” Bradley said, amusing Paul and replying, “Dirty Dancing!”
However, Bradley later tells Paul that his answer was incorrect, and that the answer was, in fact, Ghost, much to The Chasers’ conspicuous shock. Fans also took to Twitter to vent, insisting it couldn’t be wrong.
“Why isn’t Dirty Dancing right?! #BeatTheChasers,” one fan wrote online.
The second added: “Is Dirty Dancing a musical, though? #BeatTheChasers,” as a third shared on social media: “Is Patrick Swayze question dirty dancing? #BeatTheChasers.”
Paul took to Twitter after the episode aired to clarify why he was told he was wrong with his answer.
“It’s episode 1. As we chase the game, we’re going to make mistakes. But that Dirty Dancing/Ghost call was brutal. Just to clarify, the q-wobble game isn’t over yet.”
One fan replied: “That’s what I thought! Patrick Swayze is the male lead in both movies and Dirty Dancing is a West End musical… I don’t get it!?” Paul then added: “There will be a year for the second part of the question.”

Australian Chaser Issa Schultz – nicknamed Super Nerd – replaces Anne Hegerty, The Governess, who was not on tonight’s show because of Covid at the time of filming.
“I got a last-minute call to step into The Governess’s cold and chilly shoes. It was exciting. It was almost 1 a.m. Brisbane time – I’m a night owl and human boss. My Australian told the UK bosses: ‘Just call him ‘He’ll be up,’ he shared, ‘And then I was on the plane, I think it was almost 9am. As they say, the show must go on! I’d be stupid not to do it.”
