Wesley Howson is the spitting image of James


James Corden thinks it’s brilliant that a cheeky lookalike managed to impersonate him in a Manchester club.

Wesley Howson, 24, was treated to free drinks as he partied in the VIP area with X Factor winner Shayne Ward – with the bar reportedly Tweeting: ‘@JK Corden in the building!’

‘Love this guy @Wez_chiiiii classic!’ James, 35, later told his followers on Twitter.

Wesley – who bears a striking resemblance to James – claims he doesn’t think he looks much like the actor, although his family all think he does.

It wasn’t his idea to pretend to be the dad-of-one but he loved his night on the town.

‘My mate texted someone at the club for a joke, saying he was bringing James. People were shaking my hand and one girl told me I was her idol,’ Wesley tells The Sun.

‘They were Tweeting and posting pictures. It was hilarious. I put on a Cockney accent, which was hard. I can’t believe I fooled everyone.’
