Beat the Chasers returned for another instalment tonight (January 5) and it was absolutely full of drama. We had some very close wins, some very close losses, and some very unique names (Zeus, Saxona and Luigi).
One of the night's contestants, Jane, admitted she was on the show mostly to meet her crush Bradley Walsh, but she ended up beating three of the quiz experts to win a nice £10,000, with just a second to spare, no less.
As she played against Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty, Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha and Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan, a question came up about everyone's favourite science fiction franchise:
Doctor Who Star Trek Michael Bay' s Transformers Star Wars.
The question was about the planet that Tauntauns lived on, which was Hoth (they're the creatures Luke and Han ride on in the snow). Paul buzzed in and said it was Tatooine, and as soon as he said it, he knew he was wrong.
Anne and Jenny also knew his answer was incorrect, as Anne scrunched her face up while Jenny... well, look for yourself:
You can't tell exactly what Jenny is doing. It looks like wildly gesticulating with her arm (and trying not to swear out loud), but some viewers think that she actually punched or pushed Paul:

Did Jenny seriously punch Paul in the arm for getting something wrong? 😂 #BeatTheChasers

We're not sure if she actually made contact, since we don't get to see a lot, but Paul himself joked afterwards about getting shoulder surgery:
Just returned from shoulder surgery. What did I miss?

While we're certain Jenny was gentle if she did hit him, it's not the first time in this series of Beat the Chasers that one of the quiz champions has had a strong reaction to one of their fellow Chasers.
Sunday's episode featured a tense moment between Mark 'The Beast' Labbett and Shaun 'The Dark Destroyer' Wallace, as the former lambasted the latter for taking too long to answer a question.
Beat the Chasers airs on ITV.
