The singer thinks she and Olympics star Jessica look alike

Jessie J was thrilled to bump into Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis backstage at London’s South Bank studios this week.

The singer reckoned she and the heptathlete looked similar to each other in a snap she shared with her Twitter followers and found it bizarre that they also share a name.

‘We look slyly alike lol same name – lovely to meet you,’ Tweeted Jessie, 24.

Jessica, 26, replied: ‘ha ha twins 😉 great name!’

Jessie was at the studio to appear on Alan Carr‘s programme Chatty Man, while Jessica filmed a slot for The Graham Norton Show.

It seems the pair are pleased to have become friends – but some of Jessie‘s followers are unsure about how much The Voice judge actually resembles Jessica

‘I don’t think you and Jessica Ennis look alike, but it’s ok. Whatever floats your boat. 🙂 @JessieJ,’ Tweets one.

Another writes: ‘Jessie J reckons she looks like Jessica Ennis… #InYourDreamsLuv.’
