The Chase's Governess Anne Hegerty calls celebrity contestant a "cold-hearted bitch"

Chaser Anne Hegerty (aka The Governess) isn't exactly known for holding her tongue on The Chase.

The latest? She's branded Holby City star Rosie Marcel a "cold-hearted bitch".

During a celebrity edition of the gameshow (repeated on ITV yesterday), host Bradley Walsh asked Rosie about her role in the BBC soap, and she revealed "people love to hate" her on-screen alter ego Jac, and that it's made her a "nicer person in real life".

The Chaser then said: "So, you pretend to be a cold-hearted bitch?"

And this viewer made a fair point...

The Chase is now in its seventh year and is regularly watched by more than 3 million viewers each day.

The Governess recently opened up about some of the harsh messages she receives from Twitter trolls.

"You need to grow a thick skin," Anne said. "If someone asks, 'Why are all the Chasers fat?', you can say, 'Body shaming's really hurtful and offensive!' or you can say, 'Because every time we get an answer right, we get a biscuit'.

"Which is more likely to get a new follower and a reputation for being a good sport?"

The Chase airs on weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
