The Chase presenter Bradley Walsh was forced to give one player a stern telling off after he decided to switch up the rules of the game entirely.
Contestant Nick was up to face The Sinnerman after he scored enough money in the Cashbuilder round to progress to the official Chase – but he decided he’d switch things up a little.
Nick and Paul were quizzed by Bradley: "What device is used to observe changes in an electric current?"
They had to narrow the answer down from Capacitor, Transformer and Oscilloscope in the nail-biting race for the right answer.
Bradley began: "So, what have you gone for?" and was about to reveal Nick’s answer when the contestant himself interrupted: "Oscilloscope."
A stern-faced Bradley exclaimed: "You’re not allowed to tell me! I say it, you’re not allowed to say it!"
Nick was left blushing at his gaffe, as he apologised for taking over Brad’s role in the iconic quiz show.
Then Bradley repeated: "So, what have you put?"
"I’ve gone for option C, Bradley," Nick laughed as he played along.
Thankfully, Nick had plumped for the correct answer – but quiz professional Paul had instead opted for Capacitor – a mistake which allowed Nick to make it back for the Final Chase with £3,000 for the prize pot.
And with a full house left for the final round, Paul was left in the dust, as the contestants scooped an impressive £21,000.
Viewers quickly took to Twitter to congratulate the team on their win, with one writing: "#TheChase full house well deserved, well played!"
"Team definitely deserved the win #TheChase," another penned.
But earlier in the show, players had been left distracted by contestant Clare’s huge blunder, as she confused cult leader Charles Manson with prolific author Oscar Wilde.
Stunner Clare was asked which celebrated author was included in an exhibition at Reading Prison during her Cashbuilder round – and, in a flurry, she went for Charles Manson.
The right answer was Oscar Wilde, who had been imprisoned there in the 19th century.

One incredulous viewer took to Twitter to say: "CHARLES MANSON?! He's a bloody career criminal!" accompanied by several cry-laughing emojis.
"Yes, Charles Manson. That famous author," someone else deadpanned.
But The Sinnerman wasn’t judging Clare, as he said: "It just goes to show that, under pressure, even the best players can get Oscar Wilde and Charles Manson mixed up!"
The Chase airs at 5pm weekdays on ITV
