  • The Billy Connolly lookalike fooled autograph seekers

And the comedian proved he does just that by popping into Glasgow hairdressers Taylor Ferguson to "top up on hair products".

Taylor posted this picture of himself with the star on Facebook, and said: "Lovely to see Billy Connolly who popped into the salon to top up on hair products. Always a delight to catch up with him and pleased to see he's looking great."

At least Taylor is pretty sure he met the real Connolly as last week we reported a lookalike had been fooling Glasgow tourists.

The mystery man was seen on Buchanan Street where he was mobbed by people, who stopped the 'Big Yin' to ask for a picture.

But just streets away more savvy punters were delighted when they stumbled across the REAL comedy legend.

Billy has been back in his home city to attend in the Commonwealth Games' opening ceremony.

A flurry of pictures with the real comedian - and his lookalike - have since appeared on social networking sites.
