The Chase contestant has viewers howling with laughter after wrong animal answer

One contestant on Wednesday night's instalment of The Chase had fans in absolute stitches after messing up on an animal-related question.

Will made the blunder during the quick-fire round before he went on to face The Sinnerman.

Host Bradley Walsh asked: "What animals are measured in hands to the top of their withers?"

And Will hilariously guessed: "Birds?"

Bradley thankfully managed to contain his laughter until the quick-fire round was over, but once Will squared up to The Sinnerman he couldn't resist teasing Will for his slip-up.

"I wouldn't like to see the size of your birds!" he laughed.

And fans flocked to Twitter to share their confusion.

"Majority of birds: I am one hand" one wrote.

Another laughed: "A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the withers".

And a third added: "How many hands? Big bird #TheChase" with a GIF of Sesame Street's namesake yellow character.

Someone else simply responded with a face-palm GIF.

The correct answer, Bradley revealed, was horses.

Will billed himself as an English Language tutor, and announced he would soon be moving to France to teach kids English.

But fans were convinced he was still a student because of his young age.

And one was quick to point out: "Will is an English tutor" after his hilarious answer.

Another wondered: "How does Bradley Walsh keep a straight face?"

Will was later caught by Paul after messing up on a question about cricket.
