The Chase contestant Estelle left host Bradley Walsh completely speechless when she explained what her job entailed.

Bradley couldn't quite believe what he was hearing as his jaw dropped following Estelle's revelation.

Ahead of her cash builder, Bradley, 61, probed Estelle about her life, asking what job she had before she unveiled the truth after stating she was a "civil servant".

"What sort of civiling servanty-type thing do you do? [sic]" asked Bradley before Estelle responded: "I work for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs [HMRC]."

As Brad showed a shocked expression across his face, Estelle quipped: "I know, shush, I'm a tax officer."

"I feel a little bit dizzy," added Brad before Estelle went on to say: "Shall I just leave now."

County Durham-native Estelle also admitted she had taken a gift to the filming session for Bradley, before admitting she had posed nude for a calendar and had hoped to give him a copy.

Fans were also shocked as they took to the microblogging site, with one penning: "Hang on, she's a tax inspector?! #thechase."

While a second noted that Estelle incorrectly answered a question relating to finance, with the question reading: "In finance, debt securities rated as being at high risk of default by credit rating agencies are known as what?"

Estelle answered: "Junk debt," while the correct answer was "Useless debt," with several taking to Twitter to joke about the situation.

One penned: "How is she a tax inspector not knowing this question?!!! #TheChase."

"Tax inspector? Can she read and write? #TheChase," asked another.

While a third typed: "Oh dear Estelle. Not going well today #TheChase."

"HMRC, lol #TheChase," wrote another.

Last month, it was reported that The Chase was one of the hardest game shows to win following a recent survey.

According to the study by OLGB, you have the highest chance of winning at the game show Tipping Point as it has a 58.5% chance of taking home a cash prize.

The highest amount to ever be won on The Chase was a whopping £75,000 as a solo player and £100,000 as a team, the experts suggest that Shaun is the easiest 'chaser' to beat.
