Flirty The Chase contestant asks Anne Hegerty for her phone number before saying she 'smells like a PIG'

A FLIRTY contestant on The Chase asked Anne Hegerty for her telephone number before jokingly implying she "smells like a pig".

Cheeky Callum, a 20-year-old business management student from Cardiff University, told host Bradley Walsh that he’s a “gambling fan” before turning the charm on The Governess.

Asked what he’d do if he won a share of the jackpot, Callum said: "Last year I went travelling on my gap year and got bitten by the bug," prompting Bradley to say: "You got bitten by a bug while travelling?"

Callum replied: "I did actually, bed bugs," leaving bewildered Bradley to ask: "Who's bed were you in? Leave it right there!"

Confident Callum revealed he was hoping to bag 58-year-old Anne’s number after the show, as Bradley joked: "That really is gambling!"

Callum’s flirty banter was a hit with fans who took to social media to praise him.

Christopher Wood wrote on Twitter: “Callum and Anne Hegerty are a formidable pair #TheChase.”

A user called ‘Mr Glassalfempty’ agreed: “Callum… what a hero #thechase.”

While a contributor called ‘TJ KnifeEdge’ said: “Callum is pinging out zingers left right and centre! #GangOfChase #TheChase.”

Later in the show, Callum got even more cocky.

After answering a nature question, Anne told Bradley: "It smells of pig poo in the countryside."

Callum then cheekily quipped: "Might want to get out of your car then," leaving Bradley gasping for air, adding: "I think that's the number out the window then!"

Anne seemed to take the comment in good spirits and laughed along with Callum.

Twitter user Sean Connell commented: “Haha this Callum dude is well funny on #TheChase asking Anne out then saying she smells like a pig.”

Kerry-Ann Dunn agreed writing: “Callum on the chase is so funny #TheChase.”

Laura Houldcroft commented: “Loving this Callum guy #thechase.”

Callum added £8,000 to the prize fund, but Anne ended up the champion beating him and his two team mates in the final chase with seven seconds to spare.

Meanwhile, The Dark Destroyer found himself in hot water earlier this week after a female contestant thought he'd called her "a dog".

Bradley Walsh also branded The Sinnerman "rude" on a separate episode for mocking a contestant's party trick.
