The Chase star Paul Sinha comes face to face with 'lookalike' contestant

It's like looking at twins

Viewers of The Chase thought they were seeing double when a contestant came on who was a dead ringer to its Chaser Paul Sinha.

Fans were stunned when Raffey, who was the first player to go up on Friday's instalment of The Chase, turned to the camera and asked to be up against the 'Sinnerman' because "I think he will be looking into a mirror!"

Host Bradley Walsh wasn't so convinced by the resemblance, replying: "Really?"

But a non-deterred Raffey continued: "I'm told by many people that I am basically him."

Bradley retorted: "They're mad, take no notice."

But he squealed: "It's Raffey number two!" when Paul Sinha walked out to face his doppelganger.

As he took to his seat he told an excited Raffey: "It is like looking into a mirror but it’s not a compliment. I’m 24 years older than you!

"Nonetheless you look like me, you're not an outdoors person, we've clearly got a lot in common this should be a hell of a lot of fun."

Luck seemed to be on Raffey's side as he went head to head with Paul and scooped the top offer of £26,000.

Viewers at home were also surprised by the pair's resemblance.

"Is the Sinnerman playing against his younger self on #TheChase tonight?! Can't get over how alike they look," one declared.

Another added: "Hoping Rafey wins this.. He looks like Paul Sinha! #TheSinnerman #TheChase."

A third quipped: "Why is The Sinnerman a contestant? Lol #TheChase?"
