CILLIAN MURPHY fans have sent social media into meltdown after discovering the Peaky Blinders star has a surprising celebrity lookalike.
The identity of the Irishman’s doppelganger? None other than Billie Eilish.
It all started over the weekend when Eilish hit the headlines after posing in a provocative new photoshoot for the cover of British Vogue.
Gone were the baggy clothes and brightly-dyed locks that have become the 19-year-old’s signature look, with the musician dying her hair blond and donning corsets and lingerie for the new series of photos.
The new look certainly went down well with fans online too.
Within just six minutes of sharing the snap to Instagram, Eilish’s post had garnered more than one million likes on the social media platform.
Even better still, it went on to become the most-liked cover in the history of the magazine.
However, while Eilish’s bold new direction received the thumbs up, many also spotted an uncanny resemblance between the vocalist and Murphy.
A side-by-side photo of the two quickly began doing the rounds on Twitter and fans were blown away to put it mildly.

“Billie Eilish is just Cillian Murphy in a blonde wig. I can’t unsee this now,” one wrote.
A second said: “Just read somewhere that Billie Eilish looks like young Cillian Murphy sometimes and I just cannot remove that sh*t outta my head.”
“Billie Eilish and Cillian Murphy look WAY too much alike,” a third said.

A fourth simple asked: “Have we ever seen Cillian murphy and billie eilish in the same room?”
While Eilish is known to have Irish roots, there is no indication the pair are in any way related, though it might be worth investigating.
