Jacob Skelton, a 15 year old schoolboy, was just a normal dude. That was until his Mum’s mate pointed out a scary likeness to a floppy haired ex-bakery worker.
This is one of the most unbelievable doppelgangers ever, because Jacob looks like a dead ringer for Harry Styles, particularly the almost identical brown curly locks, that so many girls love.
The best part about this story? Jacob had never even heard of Harry Styles and now he has over 10,000 fans and has become an international sensation, with ladies flocking to his feet.
Walking down the street is a bit awkward for Jacob, especially with the all the looks he gets and occasional fan mobs, who often scream out marriage proposals. He really does look that much like Hazza.
The Sun was lucky enough to interview the young guy, who has found new found fame just from being himself.
“When I go out I get stared at all the time.”
“And when I’m down the park I get girls in their 20s coming up to me.”
“I even got followed around Whipsnade Zoo by some girls who asked for a photo with me.”
He lives a very normal live in Milton Keynes with his Dad and is loving all the attention he is getting:
“It’s incredible, but I’m loving every minute of it — and my mates think it’s hilarious.”
I didn’t really know who he was at first because I didn’t watch X Factor.”
“But people started saying I looked like him and even my teachers started calling me Harry.”
“Then in November I spotted him on the front of a magazine and my friend Joseph took a photo of my face next to it and posted it on Facebook.”
“It got hundreds of likes and I got 999 friend requests.”
