David and Victoria Beckham, Ricky Gervais and Gordon Ramsey tucking into fish and ships are not your usual sight on Eastbourne seafront.

But the stars – or rather their dopelgangers – are pictured on the prom together in a publicity stunt for Channel 4’s new fly-on-the-wall reality programme Lookalikes.

The show follows the antics of a group which makes a living out of their uncanny resemblance to some recognisable stars.

They are all part of The Celebrity Lookalike Agency, run by Eastbourne’s Andy Harmer, who has spent more than 15 years impersonating David Beckham.

The programme is aired on July 20 at 10pm.
