Beat the Chasers fans were left raging at their screens after one contestant lost out on winning £10,000.

The latest episode saw contestant Gordon participate for a chance to win the cash prize, but sadly he didn't manage to beat the quiz masters.

He lost out with just one second remaining and it left fans devastated for him.

Gordon was up against Paul Sinha, Jenny Ryan and Shaun Wallace.

During the quick fire round, Bradley Walsh asked: "Anne Elliot is the heroine of which Jane Austin novel?"

However, some Twitter fans noticed quizzer Paul didn't appear to press his buzzer when he correctly answered the question, and he was accused by some viewers of "breaking the rules".

Usually, the Chaser will press the buzzer and they get the chance to answer.

Fans raged that Paul hadn't waited until his name was called out to give his answer – with him also against the clock – with some claiming it potentially lost another point for Gordon.

Some even called for him to be "disqualified" from the show, while others questioned if maybe the buzzer had been pressed – it just hadn't seemed that way.

"Omg don’t know what to make about #BeatTheChasers Paul’s buzzer 100% didn’t go off?! @ITV," one penned on the social media site.

A second shared: "I've just rewound and watched again – PAUL DEFFO DID NOT PRESS HIS BUZZER, the announcer never said his name – but she did in all the other chaser presses – foul play, chasers should be disqualified."

A third penned: "Paul Never hit the buzzer for one of his answers #BeatTheChasers#fix."

Another wrote: "Didn't hear Paul's buzzer on one of those questions there. Mistake, or editing error?"

Sadly, Gordon went home with nothing, but another contestant named Sed bagged £40,000 during his turn.
