Customers at a Redcastle Hotel have to do a double take when they see Cheryl Cole lookalike Leanne McLaughlin walk in.

But despite being a dead ringer for the UKs most loved X-Factor host Gleneely’s Leanne said she just can’t see the resemblance herself.

Speaking to the Journal she said: “People at the Redcastle Hotel where I work would say I look like her, like the guests would say it.

“But I don’t think I look like her to be honest. I just don’t see any resemblance anyway.

“My mum doesn’t think I look like her either.”

The modest 23-year-old former Carndonagh Community School pupil said she doesn’t plan on using her celebrity looks to sign up to a look-a-like agency but did admit she was flattered by people comparing her to the Girls Aloud star.
