Strictly Come Dancing favourite Karen Hauer shocked fans after sharing a gorgeous photo of her lookalike mum. The pro dancer uploaded a sweet snap to Instagram on Friday to celebrate her mother's birthday, but fans couldn't get over the uncanny resemblance between the pair. Captioning the image, which sees Karen and her mum sport very similar hairstyles, the Strictly dancer wrote: "Feliz cumpleaño Mami... Love u," which translates to, "happy birthday mummy."

Karen's Strictly pal Oti Mabuse was the first to comment, writing: "Mummy 21 and going younger." Another follower commented: "A lovely photo, Karen. You are so much alike," a second said: "Now I know where you get your beauty from. Your mum is stunning." A third added: "Good hair runs in the family I see. Happy Birthday Karen's Mami," while a fourth said: "Lovely photo. You're mum looks fantastic and your double."

Sharing a photo of her sibling on her Instagram Stories, she simply wrote: "Bro," and tagged Jean-Luc's fitness account, 'myosinfitness', who then re-posted it, adding the caption: "Just sistering."
