Anne Hegerty: The Chase star apologises as phone goes off during live TV interview | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV


Anne Hegerty, who is best known as The Governess on The Chase, was joined by her co-stars Mark Labbett and Shaun Wallace on This Morning today. The quizmasters discussed their new ITV show The Chaser’s Road Trip: Trains, Brains And Automobiles.

The 62-year-old began discussing how the trio travelled through America in an RV before the brain whizz was interrupted.

Anne began: “I hadn’t really taken on board the phrase RV, I thought in terms of a minibus or something like that.

“And I went into the car park and looked at it and I said no I can’t do that.”

At that moment, The Governess’ home phone began to ring in the background which she attempted to ignore.

Shaun said filming was “exhilarating”, as he joked: “Mark’s driving was a bit suspect at times, but that was because he was driving an RV on roads he wasn’t familiar with.”

Mark then quipped: “They said you’re driving it and only gave me a few minutes in a parking lot and said go for it!'”

They even put their wits to the test against Kanzi, a Bonobo ape, who is able to communicate with humans using pictures and symbols on a Lexigram.

Speaking about the challenge, Mark recalled: “Kanzi is like the Einstein of the primate world, he’s been doing pictograms all his life and we had thirty minutes to learn all of these images which was quite hard.
