A BEARDED bloke found his doppelgänger when he sat next to him on a plane – and later checked into the SAME hotel.
Neil Douglas was shocked when he sat down next to his double on a flight from Stansted to Galway
The ginger-bearded bloke and his twin stranger – a mystery Londoner – noticed their uncanny likeliness immediately.
Delighted at finding each other, the cheery duo took a grinning selfie, which was posted on social media by Lee Beattie – a friend of Neil's wife.
She tweeted: "Guy on right is the husband of my friend. Guy on left is a STRANGER he met on a flight last night!"
She later added: "I can't stop looking at it. They are the same man."
Rocking exactly the same hair colour and facial features, the men could pass as identical twins. Yet they are not related in any way – and it's blowing our tiny minds.
The image, which was posted on Twitter five hours ago, has already been retweeted nearly two thousand times.
And Lee's followers have also commented on the striking resemblance with a series of jokes and Parent Trap gifs.
To make matters even more freaky, the lookalikes then found a third man who resembles them on the plane.
But the story doesn't end there. The 32-year-old from Glasgow and his mystery carbon copy then bumped into each other again when they both checked into the Jury's Inn Hotel in Galway.
The picture on the plane shows the two complete strangers with stunning similarities. But a later snap, of the pair having a pint in the Irish city, reveals one key difference – their height.
The photo shows Neil's doppelgänger towering over him, as they both hold their beers and smile at the camera.
Neil said: "It happened yesterday, I work as a photographer so flew down to shoot a wedding in Galway.
"The funny thing is I went down to get my seat and he was actually sitting in it.
"I'm sure I said something along the lines of 'Hey brother' .
"He ended up sitting right next to me. It was all good fun. We had a laugh about it so I had to take the photo."
