Two men seated beside each other on a Ryanair flight were amazed to realise that they were doppelgängers.

Scotsman Neil Thomas Douglas was more than a little amused when he came face-to-face with the bearded stranger who is practically his mirror image.

His friend posted a photo of the lookalike men on Twitter, where it was predictably met with delight and a flurry of witty observations.

Lee Beattie captioned the photo "Guy on right is the husband of my friend. Guy on left is a STRANGER he met on a flight last night!"

Her tweet has been re-tweeted more than 2,500 times.

One commenter Ewan Mac Gill, spotted a photobomber in the background and quipped : "He's now their identical twin manager!"

Another was taken with the bearded twins and commented: "All the handsome!"

As they say in Cork, "He's the head off him!"
