Take Me Out viewers were left in fits of giggles tonight at Elvis fan with a familiar looking appearance.

Ryan from Leicester was trying to get a date with one of the Flirty Thirty to Fernando's - but viewers thought he looked almost identical to a Lazy Town character.

The guitar-playing rocker, who is part of a 50s and 60s cover band, is a dead ringer for Stingy from the hit kids show.

Ryan managed to bag himself a date after winning over one girl with his skills with the guitar, but viewers were convinced he was actually a cartoon character.

Take Me Out viewers were left in hysterics and took to Twitter after Ryan appeared on the show as the resemblance to Stingy is uncanny.

One viewer said: "Why does that guy on take me out look like stingy from lazy town"

Host Paddy McGuinness, who admitted Ryan was one of his favourites, joined him for a performance on the show.

Paddy was sweeping up with a brush while Ryan sang and played the guitar behind his head, all while busting out some dance moves.

Ryan's chances were almost scuppered when his mate revealed he likes to strip off for burlesque dancing.

But luckily there were still girls left with their lights on, meaning Ryan had a big decision to make.

For his killer question, he asked: "Elvis is my hero, who is your hero?"

Ryan chose to take Ieva on a date to the isle of Fernando's and was dancing all the way up the stairs.

He said: "When I saw you for the first time it was like The Beetles - magical."
