Can you imagine boarding a plane, finding your seat and discovering you had a lookalike right next to you?

That is exactly what happened to two guys on board a Ryanair flight - who look like twins.

Neil Thomas Douglas, a photographer from Glasgow, was travelling to Galway via London Stansted last night when he came face to face with the bearded stranger.

He said: "When I got on the Ryanair flight, there was a dude already on my seat - when the guy looked up, I thought: 'He looks like me'.

"We had a big laugh about it - everyone around us had a laugh, we took a selfie and that was it."

But the pair were later to encounter a further coincidence when they checked into the same hotel in Galway.

Neil added: "Later that night, I went to the pub and again, there was my twin. Total weirdness.

"We had a laugh and a pint."

Scottish PR Lee Beattie shared the picture of the pair who were complete strangers before they met on Twitter and now it has become a viral hit.

Spooky or what? They look so alike. And it seems Twitter agrees:
