Ahead of her date, Jodie told the camera: "I don’t normally tell people, ‘Hi I’m Jodie, by the way I’m a Kate Middleton lookalike.’ That’s not what I do."

The 29-year-old then enjoyed a date with football fanatic James, 31, from Hertfordshire.

Revealing her three jobs, Jodie told James: "My main job is in IT, I also do promo for a radio station part-time and my third job is I'm a lookalike. Do you know [who]?"

"Yeah," James replied. "Kate Middleton."

Jodie revealed she's been a Kate lookalike for nine years.

James told the camera: "She does look a lot like Kate Middleton. Very attractive. That was a nice surprise."
