New ITV show Absolutely India: Mancs in Mumbai proved a massive hit with viewers when it began last week.
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?
Fans did have one complaint for ITV too though – at 30 minutes per episode, it’s just not long enough!
One said: “Brilliant show!! Half an hour isn’t long enough. #mancsinmumbai.”
Gutted it was only on for half a hour!
Another wrote: “Half hour wasn’t long enough for #mancsinmumbai, loved it.”
“#mancsinmumbai the best start to the series,” tweeted a third, adding: “I was gutted it was only on for half a hour!”
