BRADLEY Walsh was left red faced on last night’s Beat The Chasers – as he made a geographical error.
The host was chatting to a contestant called Pam, who revealed she was from Peterlee, a town in County Durham.
Making conversation, Bradley said: "You're from Peterlee, that's in Hampshire.”
But she was quick to correct him, saying: "Close, County Durham.”
Realising his mistake he admitted: "Oh I'm thinking Petersfield. That's in Hampshire!"
He asked if the blunder could be edited out, and pretended to reply for the first time as everyone burst out laughing.

Last night saw Chasers Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, Jenny Ryan, Paul Sinha and Darragh Ennis ready to take on the public.
But Anne – aka The Governess – was noticeably absent from her seat.
Beat The Chasers host Bradley Walsh even said: "The Governess, where…what's the matter with The Governess? Anyone?"

Paul, aka The Sinnerman, replied: "No one really knows where she is at the moment, but if anyone spots her, the public are warned not to approach under any circumstances."
Star of The Chase Australia Issa Schultz, aka Super Nerd, was then brought in to fill Anne's empty chair.
Anne was in fact missing from The Chase's spin-off show Beat The Chasers due to Covid.
The star caught coronavirus and had to self-isolate when the mini-series was being filmed, meaning she had to pull out.
She tweeted at the time: "Unfortunately I’ve contracted Covid-19 so won’t be filming this series of #BeatTheChasers."
