I know it's a while since the rule was relaxed and we've seen it before (with Take Me Out last year for example) but really do not like seeing the Chasers featuring in the sponsorship bumpers for The Chase. Really does discredit them to an extent IMO and I just can't understand how after decades of enforcing the line between programming and advertising OFCOM ended up doing a complete about turn on it.
It's utterly cringeworthy at worst.
In other Chase news, the first episodes of 2017 go off to an inauspicious start - including the
Brain of Britain
getting wiped off by the Beast, and yesterday's episode featuring someone who only managed to score £1000, ending up with the lower offer of £0. Comedy gold.
