The Chase fans were gobsmacked as a contestant on Wednesday's episode was the spitting image of Matt Lucas, but "with a beard".
Mike impressed host Bradley Walsh and chaser Shaun Walsh with his knowledge, but viewers were distracted by his uncanny resemblance to the Little Britain star.
One said: "Contestant on #TheChase just now looks like @RealMattLucas in a cunning disguise."
While another wrote: "@RealMattLucas with a beard on #TheChase."
A third penned: "Matt Lucas with a beard. #TheChase."
"Matt Lucas and Frankie Boyle's love child! #TheChase", typed a fourth viewer.
The Matt Lucas lookalike impressed host Bradley Walsh and chaser Shaun Walsh with his knowledge.
Shaun remarked: "Well played Mike, well played mate."
Two players, Mike and Carl, made it into the final chase.
Unfortunately Shaun was just too good for the team as he caught them with 59 seconds to spare.
Also on Wednesday's instalment of The Chase, a contestant named Hannah took the low offer even though her team advised against it.
Viewers were furious, but chaser Shaun agreed with her decision to take his offer of £1,000.
Her teammate Carl told her: "Don't go for the £1,000, and definitely don't go for the £30,000."
She opted for the low offer, telling host Bradley: "I think I'm going to go for the £1k so I get some cash in the bank and make it back for the final chase."
Fans were raging, as one tweeted: "Went low and couldn't even get back. How embarrassing is that?"
While another wrote: "Low offer w***er."
"Low offer w***er is out... good", penned a third.
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
