None other than EastEnders villain Lucas Johnson! Do you see it?

And, in an hilarious revelation, the weatherman admitted that the former soap star has also been mistaken for him, too!

Chatting to GMB hosts Charlotte Hawkins, Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway, he said: “I’ve actually been mistaken for Don Gilet, who played Lucas Johnson, who was the murdering priest in EastEnders.

“And one day, we met and he said ‘oh my god, I get mistaken for you all the time’ and I was like ‘same for me’. We had a little chat about it.”

He continued: ‘I always remember the first time I thought I got recognised. I was on the train coming from Bristol to London and these two girls came up to me and asked for a picture.

“They took the picture, walked off and said ‘can’t believe we met that guy from EastEnders’.”

So does this mean Don gets stopped and asked about the weather?

During the segment, Ben admitted his son saw Dale Winton on screen and thought it was his dad, while Kate was mistaken for Lorraine Kelly – by none other than Bridget Jones actor Colin Firth!

While Alex is likened to Don, he said he’d love to be compared to French footballer Thierry Henry.

Don made his first on-screen appearance as Lucas in April 2008, and was introduced as a reformed drug addict and criminal turned preacher.

During his time in Albert Square, Lucas left his ex-wife Trina to die, murdered Denise’s ex-husband Owen, drowned his son’s dog, Sugar, and strangled Denise and locked her in a basement while allowing her family to believe she had killed herself.

To top it all off, he killed another woman to use as Denise’s supposed body.

Lucas left EastEnders for good in March 2016.
