A fourth said: “Couldn’t put my finger on it. Someone get that man a cowboy hat.”

Someone else who saw the similarity put: “Nailed it.”

On The Chase, Benny did really well in his cash-builder round, getting eight questions correct.

When he stepped up to face The Vixen, his middle offer was upped to £9k.

That’s after he said Baron von Trapp to a question about The Sound Of Music, when Bradley, initially not accepting his answer, had been looking for Captain von Trapp.

Jenny caught him in the head-to-head, though, and only Annie and Jill made it to the final round.

They were no match for The Vixen in the end either and they went home empty handed.
