Andrea Faustini auditions at X Factor Judges' Houses - 30 Sep 2014


But since rising to fame on the show, Andrea has got fans thinking he looks a little familiar. Well, like TOWIE's Arg to be precise!

Dark brown hair, tick. Cuddly nature, tick. Singing voice, tick! (Well, one has a slightly better voice than the other...)

Taking to Twitter earlier today, Arg asked his followers: "Does the Italian guy on @TheXFactor really look that much like me lol!? Getting so many tweets #Ringer."

As if to hammer the point home, the TOWIE star was then inundated with even mores tweets comparing him to the Italian singer!

One fan quipped: "Oh my gosh, he is your twin with a beard and an accent!!!! Haha!" Another added: "He so does!! I've always called him 'Bearded Arg'."

However, not everyone was inclined to agree. One follower tweeted: "Hahaha absolutely looks nothing like you!"

Andrea will take to the stage this Saturday alongside his fellow 11 X Factor contestants. Mel B also picked Paul Akister and Jake Quickenden for her Boys' category.
