A dinner party from hell! Sparks fly as Simon Cowell, Gordon Ramsay and Taylor Swift dine (thankfully they’re lookalikes)
Diners were stunned when celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay gave Simon Cowell a grilling in a Greek restaurant who was then spotted chatting up pop princess Taylor Swift.
But the group of “stars” turned out to be lookalikes that had gathered for a charity knees-up.
They included an Engelbert Humperdinck interpreter, a fake Gok Wan, a fake Blondie and a dead ringer for pop veteran Sir Cliff Richards.
Cowell lookalike Andy Monk, 54, and Gordon Ramsay double Martin Jordan, 42, a factory worker from Kent, stunned punters when they came to blows in the middle of the restaurant.
Customers were even more gobsmacked when Cowell was spotted chatting up Taylor Swift doppelganger Xenna Kristian, 18.
But the real shock came Cowell ended the evening by smooching Blondie singer Debbie Harry – who is in fact his fiancée Rose Cook, 43, from Derby.
One shocked customer said: “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I saw Gordon Ramsay effing and blinding at Simon Cowell.
“Simon then walked over to the bar area and was having a cosy chat with Taylor Swift – it was like being in the middle of a top celebrity party.
“It was astonishing and everyone in the restaurant gasped until the ‘stars’ all fell about laughing and explained they were lookalikes. They were very convincing.
“It still looked weird to see Simon Cowell having a snog with Blondie though, some people took pictures on their mobile phones even though they knew they were lookalikes.”
The group of professional tribute acts, who earn thousands a week for appearing as the real life stars, gathered at Emilios Greek restaurant in Nottingham to raise cash for Breast Cancer charities which was organised after Rose’s mum died of the disease earlier this year.
Cowell lookalike Andy Monk said: “It was a great evening and it is always fun to see people’s reactions when they see us all dressed as the celebrities we imitate.”
