THE Chase fans could not help but laugh after a strange coincidence during the latest episode of the show.
Bradley Walsh was back at the helm as he welcomed a batch of four new hopefuls all aiming to win big and take home some cash.
Taking on the high stakes ITV competition were Simon, Carly, George, and Steph and two of the contestant's names got everybody talking.
In an apparent coincidence, Carly and Simon were seated next to each other on the show leading many fans to think of the famous singer-songwriter Carly Simon.
None of the contestant nor the ever joking Brad picked up on the matter but it did not take long before droves of fans at home were left writing about it online.
In reference to Carly's huge hit, one viewer wrote: "This couple of contestants. They’re so vain."

Another fan who was quick to point out the joke, added: "I notice that they have Carly next to Simon….why ? #TheChase"
A third laughed: "Carly Simon on #TheChase!"
But there was one fan who was seemingly left less than impressed by the moment.
Appearing to discover the joke slightly later than fellow watchers, they raged: "Oh FFS, I've just noticed Carly Simon. F*** off ITV!
