Dan Walker, 43, presents BBC’s Chase the Case, a strategy gameshow where five contestants trade their general knowledge for information to win money that's hidden in briefcases. The show aired late last year with episodes currently being repeated on BBC Two. Amid the nostalgia, Dan was reminded of one answer that really made him laugh.
Dan saw a viewer had tweeted a clip of the memorable answer that the presenter said he “really enjoyed".
In response, he said: “The magic of #ChaseTheCase It’s BBC2 in the afternoons at the moment for your televisual enjoyment #GermanShepherd.”
In the clip, Dan read out the hint to the five contestants: “I featured in the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony, in a video clip of an infamous broadcasting moment. I worked for the Met Office from 1962 to 2004…” He was stopped by a buzzer from contestant, Paul.
He may have thought his quick answer was well thought out, but it left the rest of the team and Dan bewildered.

“German Shepherd?” He guessed.
There was a short pause after Dan confirmed the answer was wrong, before he burst out laughing: “I’d like to see a German Shepherd work at the Met Office.”
“As much as I enjoyed that answer, you’re frozen out,” he giggled.
Taking to the comment section, Dan's Twitter followers also enjoyed the laugh: “The memory, Ah yes, who can forget the time that German Shepherd incorrectly informed us there wouldn't be a hurricane,” one user joked.
Another quipped: “I’m laughing out loud.”
It can only be assumed that Paul vaguely knew that the answer included an animal’s name, as Michael Fish was the correct answer.
