Lookalike agencies are being swamped with requests for doubles of the boy wizard.

"We've had a lots of newspapers ringing up asking for Harrys," says Francesca Krachai of Lookalikes Ltd.

She says Harry lookalikes would have to be confident about appearing in public.

The agency's most popular lookalike characters are Posh and Becks.

There's also a Hagrid on the books, but no Rons or Hermiones yet.

In Shrewsbury, in Shropshire, there was a competition among local schools to find a Harry Potter lookalike to switch on the Christmas lights.

The town cryer dressed up as Hagrid because he looked like him already!

According to the Susan Scott Lookalikes agency in London, the type of jobs awaiting Harry Potter lookalikes include opening ceremonies and photocalls.

By the way, if your dog looks like Fluffy - then don't call them, they'll call you!
