The Chase fans compare budding contestant to the fictional detective Tintin

The Chase fans were left in stitches on Wednesday as they watched the latest instalment of the daytime game show after one contestant had a striking resemblance to the fictional character Tintin.

When the latest four players appeared on Wednesday’s episode – Lyra, Steve, Lee and Lindsey – there was one contestant in particular who seemed to steal the show for the viewers at home.

As fellow contestant Steve took to the podium, loyal fans of the show shared how the 25-year-old still looked like he was in school uniform as he took on the Beast, Mark Labbett.

But it was when game show host Bradley Walsh asked what the budding young estate agent would do with the money that fans noticed the resemblance.

While he shared how the funds would go towards his wedding to his sweet fiancée Katie, viewers took to Twitter to share their opinions on the young professional from Yeovil.

One user wrote: “He has an air of Tintin. It might be the jumper.”

Another agreed: “Come on that’s a school uniform jumper is ever I saw one.”

A third chimed in with: “Anyone else wondering how Steve did in his A Levels today?”

The young player shared his hobbies in ballroom and Latin dancing which he enjoys performing alongside his fiancée Katie as well as his black belt in Karate, and the Chaser couldn’t help but poke fun.

As he came face to face with the 55-year-old professional quizzer, Mark opened with: “Good afternoon, Steve. Like you, I’ve combined karate and ballroom dancing – hi-ya cha cha cha!”

Unimpressed at his terrible pun, Bradley looked down to the camera and quickly shook his head as the audience laughed away.

But it wasn’t meant to be as Steve was soon caught out by the Beast himself after a disappointing round and was the first member of the team to be sent home on the hit game show.

And Mark was quick to return with the terrible puns after he took down one quarter of the team, as he proudly announced: “Steve may have been good at karate, but I had to give him the chop.”

And viewers were quick to bid farewell to the ballroom dancer as he left the show empty-handed.

One user wrote: “Off you waltz, Steve,” while another joked: “He’s out early enough to still catch the school bus home.”

A third penned: "Come back when you can vote little Stevie," as another agreed: "Back to Thomas the Tank Engine for Steve."

The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV
