Day 23: Meet woman from Uniqlo advert

Happy Christmas, everyone!

It’s thanks to my friend, Harry, for the next doppelgänger suggestion. He posted a picture of this woman on my Facebook wall after he found her in an an Uniqlo advert in Metro. Anyone know this woman? Unfortunately I don’t even know her name…

Please keep your doppelgänger suggestions coming. The more, the better. In the meantime, reckon woman from Uniqlo advert could be my doppelgänger? Vote below…

Day 22: Meet Kate

Kate was the first doppelgänger suggestion I got within minutes of doing a shout out on Facebook on the first day of my search. Kate’s a friend of a friend who also, rather interestingly, already has a doppelgänger in the form of her identical twin sister.

Anyway, what do you think? Let me know on the poll below.

Day 21: Adele’s doppelgänger is called Michelle

A woman called Michelle Meredith has posed, rather convincingly (well, until you get too close), as Adele in a video for Set Fire to the Rain, the third single from 21, that the real Adele hasn’t even made a video for yet. Brilliant.

Day 20: BBC Radio Manchester

So I was on BBC Radio Manchester  this morning. I was talking to presenter Heather Stott who was lovely and who, you might be able to tell, I found  funny (cue inadvertent, embarrassing, breathy laughter.) I particularly enjoyed her ‘Good one!’ comment at the end of the interview in response to #doyoulooklikeme as the blog’s name.

I’m also pleased I got to do a shout out to the city’s major Lebanese community, which of course includes other British Lebanese women who could look like me. For example, Samia Ghadie of Coronation Street  fame lives in the area. Although we don’t look that alike and she’s definitely not my doppelgänger. Still I feel a sort of bond with her because we come from the ‘same recipe’ as my Mum puts it and her older brother, Tariq, played with my older sister, Chantal, in the Middle East before I was even born.

Anyway, here’s Heather and I chatting from 128:12ish. Hope you enjoy it.

Day 18: A dog’s doppelgänger is a man’s best friend

Here’s a feel-good festive doppelgänger story: Rector Monsignor Robert Ritchie at St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York decided to jazz things up in the nativity scene – by introducing an identical statue of his labrador Lexington into the proceedings. You can read the full story here.

Day 17: Shopping for my doppelgänger

It’s hard to keep your eyes peeled for your doppelgänger when you’re dashing around a shop floor trying to buy as many Christmas presents for as many people as you can. That was me earlier on today.

And yet I imagine shopping, and stopping for a bite, drink or both at a table with a street view, during said shopping sesh to be an effective way of spotting potential doppelgängers. I didn’t get a chance to stop earlier and was only in my local London bubble but I reckon if I took a pew on a bench on Oxford Street, I would definitely find a contender in an afternoon. I might do this. I might do this once I have finished all my Christmas shopping.

In the meantime, where do you like to people-watch? And if you live in London or Devon, please give me your best spots for people-watching so I can hopefully get around to trying them out in the name of research sometime soon. (Thanks very much.)
