Ralf explained: “They’re like, ‘There’s been a guy going around Manchester claiming he’s you, and he looks just like you and he goes around and he gets free drinks everywhere he goes. And I said, ‘I don’t get free drinks and I AM me!’” 

Later in the night, the girls found Ralf after realising that the impersonater was at the club, and the star said: “They come running up an hour later saying, ‘He’s here, he’s here!’ They pointed him out of me and… the ugliest guy you’ve ever seen, he was disgusting!

“So anyway… I go up to him, I go, ‘Excuse me mate, I’m a massive fan, can I get an autograph?’ And he turns around saying, ‘Yeah sure… ah fair enough.’ He went, ‘sorry mate, I was just getting away it,’ and he was so disarming I just went, ‘Ah never mind, how do you get free drinks?!’ And he said, ‘I just go to the bar and say, I’m Ralf Little, can I get free drinks?’ And I said, ‘I can’t do that!’”
