Viewers were in stitches after spotting Gail Platt's doppelgänger in the Love Island villa

In last night's episode, family members came into the villa for 'parent's day' and caused quite a stir. Alexandra Cane's mum gave Dr Alex George a good grilling for dumping her daughter, and Danny Dyer made super fan Jack Fincham's dreams come true via video call.

But Wes Nelson's lovely mum made us do a double take, as she is the spitting image of Coronation Street stalwart Gail Platt. Fans were obsessed with the likeness and quickly took to Twitter.

One fan asked: "Why didn’t Wes mention his Mum was Gail Platt 🤣#loveisland"

Another said: "Anyone else think Wes’ Mum is secretly Gail Platt?!...🤔😂#Loveisland #Corrie"

And another threw Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway into the mix: "Wes’ mum is Gail Platt’s and Kate Garraway’s love child #loveisland"

We have to admit that the comparison is uncanny! But they're not the only twinnies this year's show has thrown up.

Love Island lookalikes have provided meme GOLD over on Twitter during this series, here are the best:

Zara McDermott looks like Lola from Shark Tale

Lola is one sassy fish, just like Zara. That hair, those eyes, the pout - they basically share the same face. Hang on, how can a human look EXACTLY like a beautiful fish?

Megan Barton Hanson looks like a snake

Many fans have pointed out her likeness to Hollywood star Margot Robbie, but most think she's got secret snaky scales under that FLAWLESS face.

Sam Bird is basically Matt Terry

We don't even need to explain this one. Just look. The X Factor's Matt Terry and Sam are the same person and we won't hear anything otherwise.

Eyal Booker4 of 12

Eyal Booker looks like Mr Tumnus

Awww, wee Eyal and his cute curly locks has been compared to A LOT of celebs and characters. Our favourite (and most accurate) has to be Narnia's Mr Tumnus.

Niall Aslam5 of 12

Niall Aslam looks like Zayn Malik

We were so sad to see Niall Aslam leave the villa after just a few days, especially as he shares the same suave, boyband looks as former One Directioner Zayn Malik.

Rosie Williams6 of 12

Rosie Williams looks like Catherine Zeta Jones

OK, maybe it's mostly because they're both dark-haired, Welsh beauties - but we totally think Rosie has a very similar look to actress Catherine Zeta Jones. Fans missed this one, but what do you think?

Wes Nelson is a mug

Need we say more?

Adam Collard8 of 12

Adam Collard looks like Bruce from Finding Nemo

Another predator high in the Love Island villa food chain, Adam has shown some sharky behaviour. However, like Bruce here, he did show some remorse about his bad ways.

Samira Mighty's sunglasses icon is Mrs Lovett

Samira loves these Victorian style glasses. Each time we see her wearing them (which is a lot) we can only think of Helena Bonham Carter's character Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd.

Kendall Rae-Knight10 of 12

Kendall Rae-Knight is twins with Kady McDermott

Ok, this one is FREAKY. Former Love Islander Kady McDermott has the same face as Kendall, right? We can't stop looking. It's too much.

Alex George11 of 12

Alex George is a pink salmon

Alex is a posh salmon blini with a big smear of sun cream (well, cream cheese). It's the canape no one wants a bite of.

Paul Knops Ricky Rayment lookalike12 of 12

Paul Knops and Ricky Rayment are basically the same person

Has anyone ever seen our great, lost Towie love and Paul Knops in the same room at the same time? That's all we're saying.
