The idea of having your very own doppelgänger somewhere in the world is both fascinating and creepy...

And EastEnders fans are convinced that Phil Mitchell has a 'secret twin' after spotting his lookalike in the background of an ITV News report.

Yep, while political correspondent Paul Brand gave the latest updates on the June General Election, fans of the Albert Square legend took to Twitter to comment on Phil's dead ringer outside the Houses of Parliament.

One viewer said: "Looking forward to getting Phil Mitchell's take on the snap election," while the man in question responded: "That's my cover-blown!"

Phil's twin is in fact Mike Evans from Flint, North Wales, who was sight-seeing in Central London when he stumbled into the shot.

Meanwhile in Walford, ACTUAL Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) has been absent from recent soap scenes after wife Sharon decided to get him away from Walford a few months ago following his liver transplant.

EastEnders continues tonight (April 21) at 8pm on BBC One.
