Viewers of last night's show were left giggling as the row of contestants' names helped make up two very famous comedians (well, nearly).

Vicki, Gervaise, Peter and Kay all appeared on the show '“ and viewers were quick to pick up that the line-up sounded like the names of The Office star Ricky Gervais and Car Share favourite Peter Kay.
