The Chase fans convinced Hollywood actor is contestant on ITV show – and Bradley Walsh left stunned

THE CHASE fans were left open-mouthed as they spot Hollywood star Colin Farrell's doppelganger on the ITV game show.

Host Bradley Walsh, 61, welcomed four more hopefuls to the show including Phil, 31, a client director from Liverpool.

But the bearded contestant immediately caught Bradley's eye, who was left stunned at his striking resemblance to the Phone Booth actor, 46.

Bradley introduced the contestant to the show and asked him what he liked to do in his spare time.

"I like to watch films, either going to the cinema or at home," Phil said.

Bradley asked: "New films or old films?"

The player said he loved all films, with Bradley responding: "You should go into films yourself, you're the spitting image of Colin Farrell."

A surprised Phil happily took the compliment, saying: "He's not a bad looking fella."

The presenter added: "Has no one ever said that to you that before?"

But Phil admitted that he'd not heard that one before, with Bradley turning to the other contestants and said: "He looks just like Colin Farrell."
