X Factor viewers blown away by Louis Tomlinson lookalike

X Factor contestant Matt Terry had fans thinking he could be Louis Tomlinson’s secret twin.

The wannabe is the spitting image of the One Direction star, who coincidentally also found fame on the ITV show.

And it has led to plenty of hilarious posts on Twitter.

Luckily for his fans, Matt looks set to be around for a while.

Bookmaker Coral says he is 7-2 favourite to win the X Factor after his performance at Boot Camp.

“Matt Terry was the stand out act at boot camp and punters are wasting no time in backing him to go all the way in the competition,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.

His closest rival is Caitlyn Vanbeck at 9-2.
