Brian McFadden was the subject of ridicule on Twitter after he fumbled through a quiz show answer.

The former Westlife singer appeared on ITV's The Chase on Sunday to raise money for charity.

But the Twitter critics came out in force when Brian fumbled through his answer to a question regarding the speed of light.

Host Bradley Walsh asked “What moves at 600 million miles per second?” To which Brian quickly responded “The earth!”

The earth travels at a much less nausea-inducing 1000 miles per hour.

Twitter wasn't keen to turn a blind eye to the embarrassing blunder.

However, Brian made it through to the final chase where he went home with £15,000; an equal share of the overall team winnings of £60,000 for his charity.
