The Chase fans left open-mouthed by contestants' 'forest-themed names' as they insist it WASN'T a coincidence

THE CHASE fans were left open-mouthed this evening by the contestants' "themed names" – with viewers insisting that it couldn't be a coincidence.

Tonight's instalment of the ITV quiz show saw Robin, Bear, Tree, and Autumn try their luck at taking home big money.

But those watching at home were more distracted by their quirky monikers – claiming that producers teamed these particular four people up on purpose.

Taking to Twitter, one fan mused: "Just noticed at the end their names were like characters out of Beatrix Potter or Winnie the Pooh."

Another wrote: "Robin, Bear, Tree and Autumn on The Chase. With those names I refuse to believe that having these four on at the same time wasn’t just a coincidence."

One more added: "Have they done this on purpose? Autumn, Tree, Bear and Robin. What a little theme going on."

A fourth echoed: "Robin, Bear, Tree and Autumn…. Are we having a laugh? What's this about?

"These names can't be real names for humans, and if so, having them on can't be a coincidence."

One viewer giggled: "I just saw Bear, hugging a Tree while Robin looked on."

Another shared a photo of the team with their names on display, quipping: "When you’re playing word association and the answer is ‘Forest’".

All four contestants took on Jenny 'The Vixen' Ryan to try and win £18,000 – and proved to have strength in numbers as they "thrashed" the clever quizzer to secure the prize.

This isn't the first time that The Chase has caused a stir with players' names, with another team sharing a shock link to the royal family, and a third spelling out "Banana Raspberry".
