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...

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 :)

I like how the guy in front of Matt is skilfully using the bend in his finger to point at the guy in front of him for being blurry. Matt is not impressed by this.

Was hard to find photos to demonstrate it (probably proving me wrong) but I've always thought that the Series 78 legend Philip Aston looks a bit like Juventus and Argentina star Paulo Dybala.

Our left or their left? If this was a good lookalike, I wouldn't need to ask! On the other hand, the one on their left (our right) looks like James Rowan.

Also, Conor Travers was on yesterday's Question Time (not in the Radio Times so they were lucky anyone knew it existed) at about 47:53.

Haha, that's really good. I was kind of tired when I watched that episode (side note, it really pissed me off, such cunts everywhere) and I knew I kind of recognised that guy's face from somewhere but couldn't place it. Great work.
