A university student from Kosovo has become an internet celebrity thanks to his uncanny likeness to Zayn Malik.

Flamur Ukshini, 23, from the Kosovan capital of Pristina, is in his final year studying Business Informatics and also works as a part time model.

But thanks to his eerie similarity to the One Direction singer, he boasts almost 40,000 followers on his Instagram page.

Every picture that Flamur posts on his Instagram page is immediately fawned over by legions of Directioners and most of his photos have been liked thousands of times.

Apart from his good looks, Flamur is an average 20-something man, but thanks to his physical similarity to Zayn, Flamur is often stopped in the street and asked for photos by adoring teens.

He told FEMAIL: ‘In the beginning I didn’t realise we looked the same, because I didn’t know him.

‘But when people on the street wanted to take pictures with me I was surprised, but then I started to realise that I look very much like somebody I don’t know and who has to be famous.’
