ITV quiz show The Chase often has its host Bradley Walsh in fits of giggles, but this time it was viewers who found themselves laughing – at a contestant’s name.

Annis, a 23-year old management trainee from Cardiff had audiences tweeting about her name and suggesting it sounded similar to annus!

SirCliveTheRed tweeted: “Am I the only person that did not notice that Annis on #TheChase has a slightly childishly rude sounding name? (sic)”

While Bass Monster added: “Wonder if she likes it up the Annis.”

Joking he probably wasn’t the first to make that gag, we really hope he was for Annis’s sake.

Aside from the ridicule of her name, Annis attracted attention for another reason – that she’s a very pretty girl.

But in a spot of girl power, Annis proved to everyone that she had brains as well as beauty when she went on to bring home £5000 to the team’s pot and made it to the final Chase.

It’s not the first time the show has hit the headlines after a contestant named Jack claimed Mars was the only planet with human life – not Earth.

And there was also pink-haired Galda Louise who hid from producers that she was actually a topless model.
