New ITV show Absolutely India: Mancs in Mumbai proved a massive hit with viewers when it began last week.

The factual entertainment series  follows former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas, his ex-Emmerdale brother Adam and his Love Island contestant twin Scott as they join their dad, Dougie.

They journey to India to discover more about their family roots.

Viewers loved the Thomases’ relationship and praised them for being a joy to watch. And, while many were already familiar with the three brothers, Dougie was unknown to most.

He proved an immediate hit, with people piling onto Twitter to praise him.

However, some couldn’t help but notice he passes more than a bit of resemblance to a certain British comedian…

Now they’ve pointed it out… do you think Dougie looks like Bobby Ball?

One complaint

Fans did have one complaint for ITV too though – at 30 minutes per episode, it’s just not long enough!
