The Chase fans gobsmacked as they spot contestants’ names all have connection

The Chase returned to our screens on Wednesday afternoon and viewers at home point out an hilarious connection between the team of contestants.

Eagled-eyed fans noticed that the names of all four hopefuls were characters from iconic British sitcom Only Fools And Horses.

Delon, Rachel, Rodney and Cassie all took it in turns to take on the cash builder and later went head-to-head with Mark "The Beast" Labbett in an intense round of general knowledge questions.

However, viewers were distracted from the show and rushed to their keyboards to discuss their shock discovery.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Only Fools and Horses fan in the audition crew."

Another added: "Special episode of TheChase today, the cast of Only Fools and Horses have come for a go! Ft. Del boy, Rodders, Casandra and Rachel aka Raquel."

A third posted: "Hahahah am enjoying this Only Fools and Horses crack here."

While a fourth wrote: "Only fools and horses…is that you?"
