During Thursday’s episode of the ITV gameshow, The Chase (September 21), viewers couldn’t help but be distracted by a player who bore a remarkable resemblance to the famous British comedian, Jimmy Carr.
As the players – Trish, Aidan, Arthur, and Jane – introduced themselves to the audience at home, it was Compliance Manager Arthur from London who immediately caught viewers’ attention.
Many couldn’t help but notice the uncanny likeness he shared with the host of “8 Out Of 10 Cats.”
Viewer Reactions and Hilarity Ensues
Social media lit up with viewers expressing their thoughts on Arthur’s resemblance to Jimmy Carr.
One fan queried, “Is it just me, or does Arthur look like Jimmy Carr? #TheChase.”
Another viewer humorously remarked, “Arthur’s how I imagine Jimmy Carr would look without all the money and surgery!”
Yet another suggested that Arthur bore a striking resemblance to both Jimmy and Alan Carr, pointing out Arthur’s thick glasses that mirrored Alan’s classic look.
“If Jimmy & Alan Carr had a love child: Arthur on today’s chase…” quipped a fan.
Arthur’s Cheeky Tribute and Anne ‘the Governess’ Hegerty
The entertainment continued when host Bradley Walsh asked Arthur which chaser he’d like to take on.
Arthur’s response was a glowing tribute to Anne ‘the Governess’ Hegerty, as he likened her to a “great teacher he never had.”
Some fans found humor in the comment, describing it as “cheeky.”
One fan joked, “Arthur wants to be schooled by Anne…” while another commented, “Oooh cheeky Arthur wants Anne to be his teacher; be careful what you wish for.”
An Exciting Turn of Events in the Game
As the game progressed, Anne ‘the Governess’ Hegerty managed to outperform most of the players during the head-to-head rounds, leaving only Jane to face her in the final chase.
Jane, undaunted, managed to secure her winnings and faced the daunting task of taking on the queen of quizzes on her own.
Impressively, Jane scored an impressive 19 points on her own, earning praise from fans online.
Jane’s Triumph and Fan Reactions
In a stunning turn of events, Jane managed to defeat Anne on the final question and went home with her £6,000 prize.
Fans were thrilled for the player’s remarkable performance, with comments flooding in to celebrate her achievement.
“Outstanding. Jane you legend,” one fan exclaimed. Another added, “She’s only gone and bloody done it!!!”
Some even called for Jane to become the new chaser, with one viewer saying, “JANE FOR NEW CHASER!! That was outstanding.”
