Bradley Walsh, 60, was on hand to help player Shamit and his three teammates win big on another instalment of The Chase. The contestants were tasked on taking on Anne “The Governess” Hegerty, 62, in order to get their hands on a share of the jackpot prize. However, appearing on the ITV quiz show seemed to make the expectant father really nervous and as a result, he completely forgot his wife’s name.
Shamit had explained to the host he wanted to get his hands on some extra cash to help him with the imminent arrival of his and his wife’s new baby.
When the player had completed his cash-builder round, it was time for him to face Anne and at this moment, the pressure got to him.
The presenter asked the contestant what his wife’s name was and for several seconds, the quizzing amateur had to really think about his answer.
Calling him out on the error, Bradley said: “If you’re forgetting your own wife’s name at the table, you’re in big trouble.”
Mortified by the blunder, Shamit couldn’t help but shake his head and the host joked he should be feeling embarrassed.
“That is not good on national telly,” he joked before commencing the head-to-head round.
