Carol Vorderman fans did a double take when they spotted the latest Vogue cover.
For while it features singer turned actress Lady Gaga, the stylist's choice of mullet 'do looked remarkably like a vintage shot of the former Countdown star.
Makeup artist Alexis Day took to Instagram to insist the pair looked like "twins".
In one particular throwback snap, Carol, now 60, rocked an auburn look that featured chopped in layers like Monica Geller's iconic "Dudley Moore" hair cut in Friends.
The star, who recently celebrated her son graduating from university, wore a pink satin jacket with puffed up shoulder pads and had a serious expression for her pose.
The presenter also wore similar makeup in the 80s to 35 year old superstar Lady Gaga in her magazine shoot and it's easy to see why the pair were mistaken for each other.
Posting two images next to each other in her Instagram Stories, Alexis wrote: "Twins. TWINS. The OG #Vorders.
"@carolvorders wins it for me tbh," the industry professional declared.
Finding the whole thing hilarious, Carol then reposted the images to her own Story and joked: "I wish," alongside a laughing emoji.
"On First glance I swear I thought this was the legend @carolvorders," Alexis also told her followers. "But apparently its Lady Gaga, who may be channelling some classic 80s vorders."
"British Vogue I really think you need #CarolVorderman on the cover instead of Madge," the makeup artist continued, adding that "either way" she's "here for it".
The star also insisted that if Carol ever gets a Vogue cover she'd love to do her makeup herself.
In Lady Gaga's photoshoot, which saw her promoting her new movie House of Gucci, which she stars in alongside Adam Driver, she opted for a blue-streaked 80s hair cut and dramatic eye shadow and contouring makeup.
The Oscar winner showed off her bold ensemble in a black and gold plunge dress that featured ruffling and a wing-like design at the sides.
Seeing Alexis's post on Instagram, one fan joked: "Someone mixing up Carol Vorderman with Lady Gaga is just the most British thing in December 2021 so far …"
"Living for this story," another person commented.
