The Chase in chaos as Richard Osman ‘leaks’ Bradley Walsh’s huge six-figure salary

THE Chase in chaos after Richard Osman "leaked" Bradley Walsh’s huge six-figure salary on social media.

The 51-year-old – who recently quit his role on Pointless after 13 years – made reference to the TV presenter's paycheck in a tweet about Manchester City's new signing Erling Haaland.

Payments to the agents and a signing-on fee for the Norwegian player, 21, are believed to come to around £34m, meaning he is likely to be on a similar deal to Kevin De Bruyne, who is believed to bank around £375,000 a week.

The news has got football fans talking, including Richard, who took to Twitter to share his opinion.

However, he couldn't help but mention the host of his former rival show in the tweet.

Richard said: "£375,000 a week. Wow. Haaland is on, what we call in the business 'Bradley Walsh money'."

ITV's The Chase and BBC's Pointless have been rival shows since they first hit our screens in 2009.

Richard's post certainly ruffled a few feathers as one Bradley's co-stars replied.

Mark Labbett AKA The Beast jokingly said: "If you are trying to stir things up in Chase land, you have succeeded :)."

Although it is not known how The Chase stars earn, it is safe to say that they receive a hefty amount of cash for their appearance on the ITV show.
