But while most women dream of having A-list looks, Francesca says her resemblance to the singer has ruined her career hopes.

Incredibly, aspiring actress Francesca insists she gets turned down for serious roles because of her similarities to the star - leaving her no option than doing lookalike work to pay the bills.
