Fans have been left in tears after spotting Rob Beckett’s lookalike on the cover of a wartime saga which was written by a Yorkshire author.

According to the comedian’s fans, he is the “spitting image” of the woman pictured on the cover of Michelle Rawlins’ Christmas Hope for the Steel Girls.

Once Mr Beckett saw the image, he too couldn’t deny the resemblance saying: “Holy s*** that is me.”

This prompted one fan to write on Twitter: “That’s a spitting image of Rob Beckett.”

Another said: “A mix of you and Scarlett Johansson I think.”

While a third commented: “Long lost twin.”

Ms Rawlins, a Sheffield-based author and award-winning journalist, found the comparison hilarious.
Does this look like Rob Beckett (pictured, far right)?

She said on Twitter: “Thank you @robbeckettcomic – I had no idea the very clever creative team @HQstories had pulled you in to model for my latest book in #TheSteelGirls series.

“I’m obviously grateful.”

Christmas Hope for the Steel Girls is Michelle Rawlins’ second novel in the heartwarming series.

It will be available to buy from November 11 from independent bookshops as well as Amazon.
