Daniel Craig might have found a new stunt double as Married At First Sight UK star Franky has been dubbed his lookalike. 

The 47-year-old conditioning coach made his proper debut on the E4 reality series on Thursday night, as he prepared to tie the knot with Marilyse, 37. 

As he donned his wedding suit and arrived at the venue in vintage wheels, viewers couldn’t help but notice the similarities between him and James Bond actor Daniel. 

One commented: ‘Marlyse is beautiful. Frankie is like a old Daniel Craig. It works asethetically.’ 

Another laughed: ‘This daniel craig comparison is sending me.’ 

One viewer joked: ‘This guy’s idea of brilliant craic is to wear a Tux at Halloween and say he’s Daniel Craig.’

Comparing Marilyse to Daniel’s real life wife, another tweeted: ‘Definitely giving off Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz vibes!’

Even Marliyse saw the resemblance and said: ‘[He’s a] Daniel Craig lookalike James Bond, he’s got the most piercing blue eyes I’ve ever seen.’ 

However, others weren’t convinced with one naysayer weighing in: ‘Frankie looks nothing like Daniel Craig.’ 

Another said: ‘Oh no, they’re playing on the Daniel Craig lookalike thing.’ 

Franky and Marilyse seemed to have an attraction to each other immediately, as she swooned: ‘I think hes lovely, I’m looking forward to getting to know him.’

After bonding over their shared hometown of Pontefract, it seemed like the newlyweds hit a stumbling block as Franky revealed he’s been living in Dubai for 16 years, while Franky disclosed she had two children. 

‘He lives in Dubai which obviously is very far away. It might be a bit awkward,’ Marilyse told the cameras. 

She then feared that Franky would have a problem with her being a mum, admitting: ‘For him to accept my children is really important and if he doesn’t then it’s a no-no.’ 

For a moment, it did seem as though Franky was having cold feet as he said: ‘The kids conversation is not a comfortable one because its enormous.’ 

However, he then added: ‘I have dated girlfriends with kids and it’s a challenge everyday – and I love a challenge. 

‘I think children are ace, and I’m looking forward to meeting them.’ 

No doubt Franky will get on like a house on fire with Marilyse’s sons, Callum, 15, and Josh, 12. 

Married At First Sight UK airs weeknights at 9pm on ITV.
