Gordon Brown lookalikes sought for TV project

Gordon Brown
Ms Jackson has struggled in the past to find a Gordon Brown lookalike

A string of auditions are to be held across Scotland to find a Gordon Brown lookalike for a TV project.

Alison Jackson, known for her celebrity mock-up photos and Double Take series, has previously struggled to find anyone who resembles the prime minister.

She is now staging events in Kirkcaldy, Edinburgh and Dumfries in the hope of finding a lookalike.

The hunt is also on for lookalikes of Peter Mandelson and Alistair Darling as part of the same project.

Ms Jackson has made a career of photographing doubles of famous people in compromising positions.

She has admitted in the past that it has proved difficult to find a convincing lookalike for Mr Brown.

Her search has brought her north of the border in the hope of finding someone with a similar appearance.

Open castings are being held in Kirkcaldy on Friday, Edinburgh on Saturday and Dumfries on Sunday.
