Meet my Doppelgangers!!!

Meet my Doppelgangers

So they say everybody has a doppelganger – you know, a double of themselves – somewhere in the world. A chat on Twitter yesterday prompted me to let you meet my doppelgangers!!!

Now, whether you believe that or not I don’t know. But what I do know is that I’ve looked like a few famous people in my time. Both from my early 20’s right through to today.

So earlier yesterday, I was having a bit of fun with Daddy Poppins & OMG It’s a Girl over on Twitter and this photo of me popped up in the conversation!!

David Grey or james Blunt?!

Yes, yes that is me aged 18 yrs old believe it or not. I wasn’t always a ‘salt n pepper’ Santa wannabe ya know!! In fact, that hairstyle and the locks (which I grew way longer & thicker) earned me the nickname ‘Wolverenium‘ – which for some buddies has stuck to this very day.

Then OMG It’s a Girl replied with this

But then Daddy Poppins replied with this photo below. And genuinely, I’ve never see the photo below until earlier. Check this out!!

Uncanny innit?!! With a bit of stubble (which became my ’20’s’ look) I really do look like him. Bananas!

BTW – If you’re not following the lads and me – co’mon now, click the links and sort it out!!

Midlife Lookelikee’s!

OK so since I’ve developed matured (ish), I lost the long hair & locks – in fact, atm I’m close to losing all my hair on top – but I’ve followed in my amazing Dad’s footsteps by cultivating some serious whiskers. Only different being when he was my age, his beard wasn’t grey like mine is – although it is the same colour now – but there is a 30 year age gap!

The beard works.

It’s works it’s socks off. It’s 100% gotten me noticed and selected for certain situation that I know simply would not have happened if I was clean shaven.

But since I’ve grown it, certain people have confused me for a host of other famous folks in many different places. Ok some are a bit far fetched I know but I have literally been stopped in the street, in pubs, on The Stented Missus Christmas work do last year with people saying ‘Jayzus, it’s …..(insert one of the below)’.

Meet My Doppelgangers
Tommy Tiernan

Hands down, I’m been mistaken for Tommy Tiernan on more occasions than anyone else. This goes back years btw. It seems like our colour – hair & beard – are twins. When I had a short beard years back, so did he! Having said that, it was the photo & Roy Keane & me that was picked up on & got me onto The Late Late Show talking to Ryan Tubridy live on telly!

Me ….. in Doggy Format

What about you?
