On Wednesday, Chase legend and all round LAD Bradley Walsh joined Instagram for the first time and I think we can all agree that the world is now a better place.

The actor-come-TV presenter shared his debut snap on the picture sharing app on Thursday morning by uploading a selfie in which he looks like he's had one too many tequila slammers with notorious sesh monsters Holly and Phil after the National Television Awards. They certainly enjoyed the party together - take a look at the video.

However, Bradley shocked his 198,000 new followers when he uploaded a pic of himself and his 20-year-old son, Barney, and fans can't get over the resemblance. Anyone would think they're related... hang on...

Bradley uploaded the father-son photo with the caption: "Sorry for late post gang (think that's what it's called) but at last I've finally come round...

"Here's me and @barneycpwalsh last night in the calm before the storm. Oh and by the way if anyone has any tips for me on how to Instagram properly, please feel free cos I ain't got a clue! Also I'm missing a shoe!"

One fan commented: "You're doing just great ! Barney clearly takes after his Dad, 2 peas in a pod ! Does he have your natural sense of humour? [sic]."

Another added: "Hi Bradley you and me both mate lol seems like you are doing ok. Wow your son is so like you you could be twins [sic]."

Other followers were quick to congratulate Bradley on joining the site, with one commenting: "You're doing a great job with your posts making me laugh at you just being you. Your son is the image of you, hope you find your shoe cinders."

"You can follow me as well....Me and my hubby think your hilarious....Loved you on Sunday Brunch when you were still a bit drunk....Just hilarious... [sic]," another fan chimed in.

Clearly impressed by his social media skills, another follower added: "If I can master instagram, a 60-something woman, then I'm sure you can too Bradley. Great pic [sic]."

We're calling the next photo will be a selfie with Bantersaurus Tim Lovejoy.
