If we're just comparing Ryan to any ginger bloke who's ever existed, here is my suggestion. I would assume though, that Michelle would never let Ryan go out wearing THAT!

It's far from the best lookalike but NBA player Kosta Koufos always reminds of Adam Dexter. And to be honest, if that is a poor lookalike, call it karma...

Claire Conway (June 11) has an uncanny resemblance to a younger Karen Gillan.

Cannot copy and paste pics on my computer, but was watching the show "Celebrity Money for Nothing", and one of the upcyclers, Sarah Peterson bore a striking resemblance to Ann Dibben. Google "Sarah Peterson Upcycling" and you will see what I am on about :)
