Samia Longchambon surprised her fans with a snap of her with her “identical” niece for a lovely family photo.

Samia, who plays Maria Windass in Coronation Street, took to Instagram to share the family photo which excited fans because of their striking resemblance.

The 38-year-old brunette beauty joked around saying she was happy to leave her niece Sasha to go on nights out, preferring to stay in.

She wrote: “Night in v night out? Night in wins for me every time. Happy to leave the glam nights out to my doll of a niece @sashaghadie [laugh emoji and heart emoji]. #friday #nightin #homebird.”

Both fans and fellow celebs were astounded by the similarities between Samia and her gorgeous niece Sasha.

Co-star Georgia Taylor, who plays Toyah in the soap, wrote: “Darling you look like twins!!! Gorgeous”, whilst Dancing on Ice skater Robin Johnstone wrote: “Wow you could be sisters”.

Leanne Battersby actress Jane Danson agreed, writing: “Twinnies”.

Meanwhile, Kate Ford who plays Tracey Barlow in Corrie, empathised with Samia’s preference for a night-in, writing: “Me too, always a night in x”

One fan was so taken with the doppelgangers that she wrote: “Haha I thought you were announcing that you’d got a wax model of yourself! You’re almost identical!”

Another fan added: “You have the same eyes!! Mothers are sisters or fathers are brothers ?! Or maybe other way round?! Beautiful xx”

Niece Sasha Ghadie commented a laughing face emoji and heart face emojis on the post, and a fan responded to her by writing: “This reminds me of that Spiderman meme of him pointing at all the clones”.
