Thought that no one in the world could ever possess bone structure as good as former One Direction singer Zayn Malik? Well, you're about to be proved very wrong indeed, as it turns out that the singer has a doppelganger - and Instagram is going crazy for him.

Meet Shyan Ranje, a fashion editor and stylist based in Los Angeles. With his bleach blonde hair, Malik-worthy cheekbones and penchant for gazing moodily into the middle distance, Shyan is a dead ringer for the ex-Directioner.

With a fondness for jewellery, leather jackets and distressed denim, the separated-at-birth pair also seem to possess an eerily similar fashion sense - something the Shyan probably puts to good use in his job as a stylist for DaMan Magazine. However, Shyan seems to have refrained from copying Zayn's most recent forays into baby pink dip dye...

In an interview with Complex magazine, Malik recently claimed that he was banned from growing a beard when he was still in One Direction. 'There were certain restrictions in terms of the way that we could come outside of that young teen boy look, Mainly my beard, to be honest,' he said.

The American Zayn-alike is the latest in a series of impressively convincing celebrity lookalikes to be discovered on Instagram. In the past couple of weeks alone, the Internet has gone crazy for the Swedish twenty-something who's the spitting image of Adele, and Kim Kardashian has even come face to face with her doppelganger Kamilla Osman (yes, that's Kamilla with a K - it was truly meant to be...)

Will Zayn's lookalike find true love with a Gigi Hadid doppelganger? And, most importantly, is there a Harry Styles lookalike out there somewhere?
