‘Look­ing like BoJo gives me my mojo’

BORIS DOU­BLE IS A HIT WITH LADIES...AND MEN

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ EX­CLU­SIVE by ISOBEL DICKINSON

A BORIS John­son looka­like says he gets swamped with saucy of­fers from both sexes.

And he reck­ons he has been an even big­ger hit since the politi­cian was dumped by his wife.

Drew Gal­dron says he has been chat­ted up by a string of girls and boys who have mis­taken him for the for­mer For­eign Sec­re­tary.

Boris, 54, is now sin­gle af­ter long-suf­fer­ing wife Ma­rina, 54, chucked him out of their home af­ter ac­cus­ing him of cheat­ing again.

Dop­pel­ganger Drew, who has been work­ing as the Tory’s dou­ble since 2007 and is gay, said it had had a good im­pact on his love life. He said: “His new sta­tus has cer­tainly helped in that de­part­ment due to his sex sym­bol rep­u­ta­tion.

“Look­ing like him has made me more pop­u­lar with the ladies lately – but the only prob­lem is I’m gay.”

Luck­ily for Drew, he is also chat­ted up by men in bars want­ing photos with a looka­like of the lead­ing Brex­i­teer.

Drew, who lives in Lon­don, said: “There is a gay bar near to where I live and when I go I lit­er­ally have a line of men com­ing up to me one af­ter the other.

“They ask for self­ies with me and if I’m the real Boris. It’s re­ally flat­ter­ing but some­times they just ask for pic­tures with me and don’t even want to chat, which I find rude.” Im­per­son­ator Drew also ticked Boris off for his re­cent be­hav­iour.

Re­ports have linked the politi­cian with for­mer Tory pub­lic re­la­tions pro­fes­sional Car­rie Sy­monds, 33.

He said: “I used to say I liked Boris but not his pol­i­tics. But now I don’t even like him.

“If he ever be­came prime min­is­ter it would be great for me but ter­ri­ble for this coun­try. He’s bum­bling and oafish.”

Drew, 35, once gave the real Boris a shock when the two of them came face to face in 2009.

Boris was hold­ing a Mayor’s re­cep­tion for Lon­don Pride which his dop­pel­ganger at­tended – and he was left speech­less when they were in­tro­duced.

Drew said: “He stared straight at me and looked pretty shocked. He asked me how I was but looked like he had seen a ghost.”
