Chase host Bradley Walsh welcomed four new candidates to the studio on Wednesday afternoon – and viewers discovered an unusual connection between the hopefuls.
During the final episode of the ITV quiz show, home viewers noticed that two of the hopefuls were celebrity lookalikes.

On Twitter, viewers rushed to point out how much Gerry looked like singer Rod Stewart.
When Gerry showed up to play his cash builder round, host Bradley Walsh mentioned the resemblance.
And Gerry said it was probably because he had a similar hairstyle.
Similarly, fans of the show also noticed that Suzie was the spitting image of Marilyn Monroe.

When Suzie introduced herself, she revealed that she is a professional impersonator.
However, there has been some debate on Twitter about what Jacquie and Callum looked like. Some said Jacquie looked like Annie Lennox while others thought Angela Lansbury or Jacqueline Wilson.
Some said Callum looked like actor Mackenzie Crook.
The chase bosses often group candidates according to a topic.
Before that, they had players who all had friends’ names.
Recently there was also a link to Only Fools and Horses with players named Delon, Rachel, Rodney and Cassie.
The show, however, does not reveal anything about the context – instead, it leaves viewers to notice.
What did the audience of The Chase say?
When viewers watched tonight’s episode, they thought it was fun wearing the two lookalikes, though they couldn’t find a consensus on who Jacquie and Callum should be.
One said, “Rod Stewart, Mackenzie Crook and Marilyn Monroe are all at The Chase tonight. #The hunt.”
Too busy reading the tweets to see how everyone thinks she looks.
Another wrote: “Why do the lookalikes of Rod Stewart, Jacqueline Wilson and Marilyn Monroe compete at The Chase? #the hunt”
A third said, “Who should Jacquie be? I have Rod, Mackenzie, and Marilyn #TheChase. “
A fourth sentence: “Not every day you see Gareth from the office, Rod Stewart and Marilyn Monroe on TV during the day! #The hunt.”
