A Newcastle third-year was hit on by The Governess on The Chase last night
He told The Tab: ‘What more can a guy want?’
A Newcastle history student was flirted with by the infamous Governess whilst he was a contestant on The Chase in last night’s episode.
Third-year Tom Shah had just managed to bring an impressive £3,000 back to his teammates, when the often nicknamed ‘Frosty Knickers’ Chaser, Anne Hegerty, confessed her attraction to him.
Tom came about appearing on The Chase after a drunken application at the start of his second year.
He said: “I forgot all about it until they sent me an email around February saying ‘Do you still want to be on?'”
You can watch the cheeky chat up line here:
Anne, who is nicknamed The Governess on the show, told Tom he was “ridiculously cute”, prompting host Bradley Walsh to tell the bemused student: “Yuck! Tom, run.”
Many people took to Twitter to voice their own opinions on tasty Tom.

The guy currently on The Chase is a) attractive, b) clever, and c) been given ridiculously easy questions (yes revision is going well thank)

And he also seemed flattered by Anne’s advances.
“To be honest, what more can a guy want than to be hit on by such a celebrity? It was pretty awkward, mostly because I think my teammate Ian probably got a bit jealous.”
He added: “I’ve had plenty of date offers and marriage proposals on Twitter from it all, so I now have an interesting selection. Anne is probably the least scary.”
wee guy on The Chase is a smug wee knob. tory boy for sure.

Tom wants to continue his quiz show celebrity romances.
“Apparently Pointless aren’t accepting applications, which is a bit of a kick in the teeth. It’s like being ignored on Tinder.”
