Jessie J lookalike spotted by singer at her gig was also bullied at school and suffered from same heart defect
Celebrity lookalikes are not uncommon in the music industry.
But when Jessie J invited Mellisa Frayne on stage, even she was shocked by the uncanny resemblance – and the similarities don't end there.
The pair, both 23, were bullied at school – and even suffered from serious heart defect at 11.
Spot the difference Look-a-like Mellisa Frayne strikes a pose in the style of singer Jessie J
Melissa was spotted as she waited to appear in the audience of a new television series The Voice, a singing contest on which Jessie is a judge.
At first a producer mistook the dead ringer as the real star. Recalling her experience she told The Sun: 'He told me, 'What are you doing here We need to get you to the performers' entrance.
'But there is one big difference between us — I can't sing a note.'
The television crew then asked her to appear in an episode of the show, and as Jessie went on stage to meet her she exclaimed: 'Oh my God, you're freaking me out'.
Melissa, who was crowned Miss Milton Keynes Galaxy 2011 as part of a nationwide beauty pageant, currently works as a Jessie J look-a-like.
And at first even the look-a-like agency were confused by the picture she sent in.

She said: 'I sent a picture of myself to a lookalike agency and
the boss called to say, ‘We need a picture of you, not Jessie J. People ask me for my autograph in the street.'
Jessie will make her debut as a TV judge when The Voice starts on March 24 on BBC One, alongside coaches Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue.
Each will pick out their favourite singers during the auditions, before battling it out against the other judges with their team of acts.
It is unknown what category she will be mentoring, or what performers she has chosen, but already bookies are tipping her as the winning coach, with Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am in second place.
