A woman left people in stitches after sharing a video of the moment she thought she met Louis Theroux on a night out in Blackpool:

Veronica Glendenning posted the video on TikTok – which featured photos from a night out at the famous seaside resort.

In it, she wrote: “Another time *DRUNK* in Blackpool thinking we had met Louis Theroux.”

In fairness, the man sipping a pint does bear a resemblance to the famous TV maker – especially after a few drinks.

She captioned the video: “This is another BELTER,” and it’s been seen more than 250,000 times on the video platform.

In it, Veronica can be seen posing with a friend while ‘Louis’ happily poses for the camera, although he looks a bit guilty in the third photo.

The hilarious video left people in stitches – and lots of fellow fans admitted they would have mistaken him for Mr Theroux.

One wrote: “To be fair it does look like him.”

Another jokily added: “He looks more like Louis Theroux than Louis Theroux does.”

A third questioned: “Why is Louis Theroux at a Toby Carvery?”

Another said: “Had to rewatch it three times before I could believe it wasn’t him and I’m sober.”

And through the power of social media, one person commented to say they think they know who the man is.

They wrote: “I’m going to ask the guys at work tonight to see what they think. I’m pretty sure he works at my company on a different shift. I’ll keep you posted.”

They added: “He’s a funny bloke…I’ve not seen him for a bit, but as soon as I do I’ll show him your clip, he’ll laugh his head off.”

Others shared their own stories of mixing up a member of the public with a celeb, one person wrote: “This reminds me of the time I thought I had met Denzel Washington and had a picture with him lol.”
