We still don't know if he can do the voice, but when it comes to looks Matt Lucas is a dead ringer for Britain's Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle.
The Little Britain star, best known for his chav character Vicky Pollard, has recreated the moment Miss Boyle first stepped on stage in front of the judges
An unruly brown wig, bushy eyebrows and substantial gold frock achieve the transformation from roly-poly bald comedian to the so-called Hairy Angel.
Lucas, who adopted the pose for heat magazine, says of Miss Boyle: 'I thought she was really good. But I wouldn't say she was extraordinary. It was an extraordinary TV moment because she was such an unlikely heroine.
'It'll be interesting to see what happens to her - she comes across as having lots of humility.'
In an interview, 36-year-old Lucas reveals that he has lost two stone in eight weeks after his doctor warned him about his weight.
He is restricted to 1,500 calories a day and has undertaken a rigorous fitness regime. Mail Online reported.
'The likelihood of me being a proper thin man is remote,' he admits. 'I think I'll end up being a stone overweight. But I'm not there yet by any stretch of the imagination.'
