Kevin Clifton has given fans a glimpse into the future by showing how he could look in a few years' time. The Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer shared an amusing comparison between himself as a minion and his dad Keith - and the resemblance is uncanny!

The dancer, who will be performing as one of the animated characters with Stacey Dooley during the show's movie week, wrote: "So basically I'm just gonna look exactly like my dad soon..." And followers couldn't help but agree, with even his dad taking to the comments to write: "Sorry, but yes!" Kevin's close friend and former dance partner Susan Calman added: "Ha ha ha ha I told you!!"

Kevin Clifton showed his uncanny resemblance to his dad

Kevin is incredibly close with his family, and also developed his talent for dancing from his parents - Keith and Judy - who are four times British Latin American champions. So too did his sister Joanne Clifton, who has worked alongside him as a Strictly professional dancer, and is helping him to bring their parents' popular dance academy online so their students can learn to dance from all over the world.
