Two men sat next to each other on a flight to Ireland and realised they were doppelgangers

What are the odds?

YOU COULD END up sitting next to pretty much anyone on a plane: a screaming baby, your one true love, a person who decides to use your shoulder as a pillow.

But the odds of sitting next to your actual doppelganger? Surely slim to nothing, right?

That’s exactly what happened to a Scottish man named Neil Thomas Douglas, who was randomly sat next to a man who looked the exact same as him on a flight to Ireland last night.

It’s uncanny!

The beards! The happy grin! The complexion!


It’s just like The Parent Trap all over again.
