Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday
The Chase fans were left gobsmacked on Thursday afternoon, as chaser Paul Sinha – AKA The Sinnerman – revealed his hidden talent.
Paul was going head-to-head with contestant Faith, who was handed a rather tricky question about which Kate Bush song sampled the horror film lines "It's in the trees, it's coming".
Faith plumped for Running Up That Hill – but the answer turned out to be Hounds of Love.
"I'm not a fan," Faith admitted as she was knocked out of the competition, and Paul attempted to play down his own love of Kate Bush – while reeling off an extensive list of facts about the songstress.
And, when he was finished, Paul couldn't help warbling a few lines from the hit track.
Viewers were left stunned by his "fabulous" rendition, with one writing on social media: "@paulsinha Loved your rendition of Hounds of Love by goddess Kate! Lol!"
Another penned: "Yes @paulsinha. A fabulous rendition of Hounds of Love there. #TheChase", while a third said: "Chaser singing klaxon!"
Paul managed to boot out both Faith and fellow player Jake on their way to the Final Chase, leaving an array of Faith-based puns on social media.
"The team has lost the faith!" one Twitter user laughed, while another penned: "You had no Faith in yourself, love!"
His singing display is far from Paul's first foray into stage entertainment – as well as being a stand-up comedian, the iconic quizzer has also starred in pantomime.
He took the part of Abanazar in the Grand Opera House York production of Aladdin back in 2016.
And, while taking a dig at Jake, Paul couldn't help a little self-deprecating joke about the bad reviews his performance received, as he said: "The critics said, 'Paul Sinha tried his best'. And that goes for you, too – you tried your best."
Paul recently spoke out about his anguish that he can no longer continue the much "loved" part of his career due to his declining "physical fitness" after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
Speaking on Clive Anderson’s My Seven Wonders podcast, Paul said his panto stint was a "very humbling thing to go through.
"The Chasers often get offered panto work because of the sort of villainy of the characters we play on the show.

"And I had no acting experience whatsoever, and whatever a triple threat is, I’m the negative."
He went on: "But I thought to myself, it’s all right! Bad actors do panto, it’s fine, it will be fine!
"And then you start getting the reviews in, and they keep saying, ‘And the weakest member of the cast is…’, and it becomes a familiar theme.
"And thanks to my illness, I will never do it again because I won’t have the physical fitness. And I just loved it," Paul said.
