THE Chase Viewers were left thinking they’d tuned into Coronation Street tonight – after one contestant sounded exactly like soap favourite Kirk Sutherland.
Contestant Amir faced Bradley Walsh and The Chaser in the hope of winning a cash prize.
But as soon as he opened his month to introduce himself, fans couldn’t believe how similar he sounded to Kirk – played by actor Andrew Whyment.
Even host Bradley asked Amir about his dulcet tones, and he confessed he gets the comparison a lot when people hear him speak.
Bradley admitted he thought simpleton Kirk was in the studio.
Fans at home couldn’t get enough and took to Twitter to make their feelings known.

One viewer said: “OMG this guy on #thechase sounds exactly like Kirk from Coronation Street and it’s really confusing me.”
Another said: “Sounds like Kirk from Corrie.”
A third tweeted: “Had to YouTube Kirk from Corrie bloody hell the similarities is unreal.”
A fourth fan quipped: “Just tuned in, f**k me you guys are right.
“He does sound like Kirk.”
Sadly for Amir, his dulcet tones couldn’t keep him in the competition.
He was booted off the ITV game show after facing Chaser Paul Sinha.
The Chase airs weekday evenings, 17:00, on ITV.
