The Chase's Bradley Walsh reveals he's 'learning Italian' from famous TV chef | The Sun

THE Chase host Bradley Walsh has revealed his surprising new hobby with a top celebrity chef – and it's got nothing to do with the kitchen.

The ITV show anchor, 62, made the big reveal during Tuesday's episode of the hit tea-time quiz show.

It came when speaking to The Chase contestant Barbara, who originates from Italy.

After the initial introductions, Bradley told her: "Oh Barbara, I love your accent. I'm going to enjoy that this afternoon."

He then went further and confessed: "I'm actually learning Italian myself at the moment. Buongiorno.

"I'm learning off Gino D'Acampo!"
