ITV viewers were left fuming after popular gameshow The Chase was delayed to make way for live coverage of Liz Truss’ inauguration as British Prime Minister.

The quiz show, which sees players compete against brainiac quizmasters to win money for their team, has a loyal following and despite being listed on the streaming site's schedule, the show was aired 30 minutes late because of Truss’ speech.

“Liz, as new PM you should realise that the public do not take kindly to #thechase been impacted by politicians,” blasted on viewer.”

“Um, why the f**k have they cancelled the Chase for *this*???? i feel violated!!” said another.

“Just realised they've cancelled #TheChase for this crap!” said a third.

Despite many believing the show had been cancelled, the show did eventually air, though fans did not appreciate the lack of information from the network and many appeared to switch off.

“Phew it’s on #TheChase,” said one relieved viewer.

“Just me watching coz most ppl switched off an gave up waiting for the chase.”
