X Factor's Matt Terry made a lot of fans very happy on Monday night when he uploaded a photo to Instagram showing him with One Direction star Louis Tomlinson.

Matt, 23, is frequently referred to as a Louis, 24, lookalike and this photo, taken backstage at the Pride of Britain Awards, certainly shows why that's rather true!

Wearing smart suits and sporting identical hairdos, the boys could pass as brothers, right?!

Fans on Instagram certainly thought so with comments including "they look exactly the same", "had to work out who was who, they're so alike" and "this is f**king creepy."

Matt previously told The Sun he found it a big compliment to be compared to Louis, even if it does mean receiving some super odd social media messages!

"I either get ones that are super normal, or ones that are like 'OMG, it's Louis!' and then there's like a picture of his baby and I'm next to it and it said - 'This is #Freddie now – how old does this make you feel?" he said.

"It's so funny, but I'm having lots of fun with it."

Louis found fame on X Factor back in 2010 with One Direction, while Matt is the bookies' favourite to win the current series of X Factor.

We wonder if Matt pumped Louis for any tips ahead of the next live show? After all, who better to advise on the Girlband v Boyband theme than a member of one of the world's most successful boybands!

X Factor continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
