Dads playfully chasing you up the stairs, and touching your ankle just before you get to the top, has been voted…The scariest thing that has ever happened in a new Channel Four poll.

The Channel Four programme, which airs on Tuesday at 8pm, counts down the list of the top 100 scariest things that have ever happened.

Dads chasing you up the stairs, finished ahead of ‘Sitting next to an ISIS bomber on The Tube,’ with ‘Knowing your plane was about to crash,’ finishing third. Former child, Peter Thape (now 27) still remembers the accompanying growl that his dad would make as he set off up the stairs behind him.

‘I popped round last week, and he did it to me then too. I’m 27 for fucks sake,’ said Thape.

‘I panicked, just like when I was six, collapsed near the top just before he clipped my ankle,’ added Thape.
