Most known for her time on Countdown, Vorderman appeared on The Chase on Tuesday against Chasers Anne Hegarty, Jenny Ryan, Shaun Wallace, Darragh Ennis, and Mark Labbett. While many fans applauded the 61-year-olds effort, others were concerned about comments made by Labbett.

Known as "The Beast" on the show, Labbett tweeted: "I don't know what is more impressive about @carolvorders, her intellect or her more tangible assets #superstar #BeatTheChasers."

While the comments out of context are undeniably creepy, Vorderman herself cleared the air on Twitter.
