Though weirdly, the old couple on the bus, the husband was Reginald Tsiboe, Bobby Farrell's replacement in the early 80s lineup of Boney M, who unlike Farrell, actually sang.

Crimey - I know Reg. He's a lovely chap and he has indeed got a lovely voice. He doesn't look like the old couple on the bus though.

Rupert Grint and Domhnall Gleeson. To be fair I actually just thought Gleeson played Harry Potter's friend and didn't know Rupert Grint even existed.

I thought John Hannah and James Nesbitt were the same person for a while; they seemed to appear at the same time. Similarly John Simm and Simon Pegg.

Anna Richardson and Dawn (O) Porter. I'm easily confused by vaguely similar hairstyles.

Kevins Bacon and Spacey. I still refuse to believe they are two different people.

When I was five I saw this clip of Alvin Stardust on TOTP and assumed Elvis Presley was the same person.

Also, around the same period my mum and dad were watching news coverage of the Iranian embassy siege and I took one of the gunmen to be Noel Edmonds.

Fran Drescher and Janice from Friends. I'm not sure if I thought they were the same person or just that the Janice actress's name was Fran Drescher because they've done a mickey take of her a few times on Family Guy and they've got similar voices.
Edit: just googled it and there's even a Mandela effect thing about it.

Haha this is a stupid one, but when I was really young (5 or 6 I guess) I remember wondering if Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet was the same person as Gordon Burns, presenter of The Krypton Factor.

I mean, they both had brown hair...

I thought I was the same person but then I realised that I had changed, irrevocably. Puberty's fucking mental.

When I was reading Peter Armitage's obituary, I wondered why his role as Jonny Brigg's dad wasn't mentioned when it dawned on me that it was because that was Leslie Schofield. To be fair, they have both played Sue Devaney's dad.
