The Chase Viewers Were Giving Out About A Drag Queen Being On The Show, And The Governess Was NOT Having It
Tell them Anne!
Anyone who has ever watched The Chase knows the quiz show attracts all sorts of contestants.
So it’s quite puzzling (geddit) why anyone would complain about a drag queen going on the show – but they did.
#TheChase l really think it is mischievous and highly irresponsible of ITV to allow people of this sort to appear on a family show. I feel quite disgusted.

Now, it doesn’t explicitly say that ‘people of this sort’ meant 24-year-old drag queen Daniel, who appeared on the show yesterday with a full face of makeup.
The tweeter could have had a problem with the ski chalet business owner, post office worker or retired RAF staffer who were also on The Chase yesterday, but to be honest… it’s not likely.
Anne Hegerty (AKA The Governess) certainly thought thought he was talking about Daniel, because she gave him a short, sharp, instantly meme-able response:
No one was really expecting this from Anne, who has a very prim and proper persona on the show – but she has now been declared a ‘gay icon’ and the ‘hero we need’.
Her response was backed up by her fellow Chasers The Beast and The Sinnerman, who said The Chase has always been an inclusive show:
We welcome everyone on the show… and you really are a sad Fucker Mr Cantab

I can't fathom the mentality of those genuinely angry about a drag queen on #thechase. We have always been inclusive.

The Governess: Queen of F**king Everything.
