It comes after a viewer shared their disappointment about the contestants "inappropriate behaviour" during an episode of The Chase which aired on Challenge TV yesterday.

The person in question wrote: "This episode of @ITVChase on @ChallengeTV is remembered for all the wrong reasons.

"Winning team behaved completely inappropriately during @MarkLabbett final chase, repeatedly mocking him."

The viewer spoke about the winning team's behaviour during the final round of The Chase as the contestants talked during Mark's round.

However, the quizmaster admitted he was not too bothered by them "mocking" him as he would have done the same in the final round.

Mark penned: "All is fair in the final Chase apart from talking in my time of course. Deserved winners but I would have mocked them royally had I won."

The social media user replied: "Yeah talking during your question may not be against the actual rules, but it’s certainly against the spirit of the game."

Meanwhile, repeat episodes of the hit ITV game show have aired over the summer but a new series has since launched at the start of this month.
