Lookalikes Comes To Channel 4 This Monday

Posted on Updated on

Lookalikes
Craig Wilcock as Harry Hill

Lookalikes, the Channel 4 short that featured Harry Hill lookalike Craig Wilcock, will be airing its special episode on Channel 4 this Monday.

Airing at 10pm on the channel, here is the synopsis for the episode:

Eastbourne: where the world’s most famous people come to play. Or do they? Lookalikes is a structured reality show following the antics at Britain’s premier lookalikes agency, run by David Beckham impersonator Andy Harmer. The agency is a revolving door for those who look like some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry and make a living from it. The question is, can they turn off the act at the end of the day? The programme follows Andy as he tries various unique business building schemes with hilarious consequences. He’s hoping to re-launch his male cabaret review act, The Chippendoubles, in the USA and thinks he’s got the perfect business partner to pull it off: Barack Obama lookalike Reggie. However, Andy’s plans are thrown into chaos when troupe stalwarts ‘Will Smith’ and ‘Gordon Ramsay’ quit and he faces a race against time to turn ‘Mr Bean’, ‘Colin Farrell’, ‘Ed Sheeran’ and ‘Robbie Williams’ into a coherent dance troupe. Meanwhile, David Brent lookalike Tim is fed up with his day job, and lovelorn ‘Gordon Ramsay’ admits to ‘Del Boy’ that he has romantic feelings for ‘Victoria Beckham’.

Craig has confirmed he is back for the special, appearing as a version of himself.
