Taking to Twitter, one tweeted: “Oh goody, a fruit-themed episode of #TheChase – Ben and Anna, banana, and Ros and Perry, raspberry.”
Another mused: “This episode is sponsored by fruit ( Ben + Anna and Ros + Perry) #TheChase.”
A third, meanwhile, asked: “Are the team names referring to banana raspberry tonight or is it just me being an idiot??”
Monday evening’s episode of the popular game show saw Paul Sinha – aka The Sinnerman – in the Chaser hot seat.

The contestants’ names spelt ‘Banana Raspberry’
Fifteen minutes into the programme starting, he too spotted that the names spelt out ‘Banana Raspberry’.
Looking over at the players’ illuminated names, Bradley said: “Oh, come on! He’s ludicrous.”
Unfortunately, the fruity lineup didn’t last long, as Anna was first to leave within the first half of the show.

Meanwhile, telly presenter Andi Peters was seen fighting back tears on Sunday night after losing £70,000 for charity during a celebrity episode of The Chase.
The Good Morning Britain star decided to risk it all in a bid to win money during the 2017 repeat, but unfortunately he ran into some bad luck.
The throwback episode also featured 80s children’s TV character Basil Brush.
