Stormzy reacts brilliantly to being asked about his footballer lookalike

Fair play he took this well.

Stormzy is currently riding a crest of a wave. His debut album, ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’, is earned rave reviews and plaudits around the world, whilst his appearance at the Brits with Ed Sheeran introduced him to a whole new demographic (namely anyone who has been living under a rock in recent years...)

He is fast becoming one of the most recognisable faces in British music and being a guest on something as mainstream as this weekend's Sunday Brunch was testament to that. But it is a famous face that the grime don shares with another celebrity icon of British culture - that of a similarly talented young man.

Stormzy, given name Michael Omari, is often compared with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku. It is a likeness that regularly comes up whenever either one is starring on our television screens...

Whilst on the Brunch, Stormzy was asked about the likeness, and even he had to admit that it was uncanny:

"Aaaah! Lukaku! Romelu Lukaku! Do you know what's so mad, yeah? I'm not gonna lie - every time I see him I just look at him and think: 'Yeah you dooo mate!' We just look the same..."

Fair play to both of them - there's certainly worse looking and less talented people to be compared to...
