JOE WICKS is more used to transforming fitness than transferring football clubs, but he’s pulled off a sensational clone move!
The celebrity body trainer has been inundated with derisive messages after Brighton defender Marc Cucurella joined Chelsea.
Fans believe Wicks’ resemblance to the Spaniard is as striking as the £62m fee Brighton received.
And the TV presenter proved that attacking can be the best form of defence, as he quickly posted: “Lots of people congratulating me on signing for @ChelseaFC” followed by crying and laughing emojis.
And with Chelsea visiting Everton on Saturday night for their first Premier League game, one follower tweeted: “Congratulations Joe mate, good luck tomorrow.”
Social media star Wicks and left back Cucurella would be uncannily similar even if they didn’t have the same long curly brown hair and beard.
And fans also speculated on “Who is the fittest hahaha”.
But, above all, it is his twin appearance that amazed social networks.
One said: “Tell me Joe Wicks and Cucurella are not related.
Others made comments like “that’s an amazing resemblance” and “Congrats on your new adventure, Joe!”

One fan joked, “You are a man of many talents.”
Some even suggested that the 36-year-old Wicks could replace the 24-year-old at Stamford Bridge.
“Is a long lost twin possible?” was a suggestion, with the poster adding, “You look more like Cucurella than Cucurella himself.”
