Within five days, Mr. Codrington, a geography student, flew to Toronto to meet his double in person and revealed that she & # 39; is like a house on fire & # 39; arrived.
The transatlantic & # 39; twins & # 39; says they are friends for life after the unlikely encounter.
Said the British Ben The sun: & # 39; I started talking to him and I couldn't believe we had the same unusual last name and we both wore banana suits in our Facebook profiles.

& # 39; He invited me for a drink and a meal in Toronto and I said, "Yep let it go."
& # 39; It was a very long way to go, but I decided to spend my savings on the air fare and we started a burning house because we look a lot alike.
He revealed that the couple was going to eat and eat in downtown Toronto and found that they had the same sense of humor.
The Brit also claimed that they had an identical upbringing, obtained comparable grades at school, and both moved from home to college.
He could not believe that Ben in his profile photo also wore a banana suit and discovered that they had much in common
The Canadian Ben said: & I could not believe it. One moment we were reporting online and a few days later we were having a drink together in my home town.
He admitted that he was wary. The British Ben was a fraudster who tried to confront him because of the incredible coincidences.
But the computer science student said he was happy the couple met and described them as & # 39; friends for life & # 39 ;.
