BBC’s I Can See Your Voice viewers have been left baffled by its ‘channel hopping’ stars after it went head to head with ITV’s Game of Talents.
The new BBC series sees a celebrity panel consisting of Amanda Holden, Alison Hammond and Jimmy Carr help contestants try and figure out who can and can’t sing without hearing them sing a single note.

Meanwhile over on ITV, Vernon Kay’s new show, Game of Talents, also started tonight.
Vernon, 46, presides over a game where contestants are partnered with a celebrity and then they try and work out the surprising and bizarre talents of eight performers.
The first episode saw Vernon’s wife Tess Daly help one contestant, while Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood worked with the other contestant.
However, viewers of both shows were taken aback by the channel swapping, considering they are used to seeing Tess and Craig on Strictly on BBC One, while Amanda and Alison are usually seen on ITV on Britain’s Got Talent and This Morning, respectively.

Taking to Twitter, one baffled viewer wrote: “#ICanSeeYourVoice & #GameOfTalents are pretty similar formats with almost identical catchphrases.
“The weirdest thing was seeing Amanda Holden, Alison Hammond, Craig Revel-Horwood and Tess Daly on the wrong channels.”
Another added: “Tess & Craig on ITV, Amanda & Alison on BBC1? The networks showing how to negotiate trade deals in light on the Brexit fiasco.”

Meanwhile a fourth shared: “Amanda Holden and Alison Hammond on BBC One whilst Craig Revel Horwood and Tess Daly are on ITV.
“I feel like I’m in an alternative universe #ICanSeeYourVoice #GameOfTalents.”
I Can See Your Voice and Game of Talents both continue next Saturday on BBC One and ITV respectively.
