Dean admitted: “I like to do impressions of people in the shower,” leaving a bemused Bradley awkwardly replying: “Very good.”

Following a range of impressions, including Morgan Freeman and Kermit the frog, Bradley appeared visibly disappointed, but it was nothing compared with what was to come from chaser, Paul Sinha.

The 46-year-old comedian and quizzing champion took his seat and tore Dean apart fos his horrific impressions.

“If your Morgan Freeman impression was the best of your skills you’re in a lot of trouble,” quipped Paul.

Shocked, Bradley gasped: “Rude!” before adding: “Unnecessarily so.”

Paul added more humiliation, however, saying: “If you thought that was rude, minus £4,000 is your lower offer.”

Unimpressed viewers took to social media to berate the contestant’s impression attempts.

One viewer tweeted: “He should be locked up in Shawshank [Prison] for that Morgan freeman impression #TheChase.”

“Dude’s going to be gutted when he watches that Morgan Freeman impression back @ITVChase #TheChase,” posted another.

A third asked: “This dude calls himself an impressionist?? Are you having a laugh??? #TheChase.”

“He is rubbish… Must sound different in the showers #TheChase #gangofchase,” said a fourth.
