On a Thursday evening flight from London to Galway, 32 year old Neil Douglas, had the surprize of his life. When he went to take his seat, he noticed someone else, was already sitting there. So he politely asked the man to move, and then he looked up at him- and was stunned when he saw his face and it dawned on him that he looked exactly like him. The man, 35 year old Robert Stirling could easily have passed for his twin brother. in an interview with the Daily Mail, Neil said that when he saw Stirling looking back at him he said to himself::
Holy s***, he looks like me”
Things were even stranger later on, when he was booking in at his hotel- He turned round to see that his Doppelganger again- also booking into the same hotel!
Amused Neil, having come to terms with his surprize, remarked on how others have also recognized the striking resemblance. "We ended up socialising and quite a few people pointed out that we looked very similar"
They say that truth is stranger than fiction, and with this story, I tend to agree.
