It's something The Chase fans have never seen before ...

But after a recent episode of the much-loved quiz show, viewers were left gobsmacked when a contestant made the rare error.

After a respectable cash builder round, Michael was taken to the table to meet chaser Shaun Wallace, AKA The Dark Destroyer.

However, it all turned awry after he and the Chaser were asked the first question during their head-to-head round. 

"Because of the town's traditional industry, what is the nickname of Burton Albion Football Club?" host Bradley Walsh can be heard asking.

The potential answers included: A: The Brewers, B: The Railwaymen or C: The Cobblers.

As the timer music played, the 52-year-old contestant awkwardly stood at the table focusing his attention on the question.

Which is when Bradley informed him: "You're out of time."

While his fellow teammates looked dumbfounded, Michael let out a disappointed "oh."

Unfortunately, he revealed he was going to pick answer A: The Brewers, which ended up being the correct one.

Better luck next time Michael!
