The general election is now days away and this floppy-haired blonde is looking forward to seeing the results.

While Mayor of London Boris Johnson is standing for Parliament in South Ruislip and Uxbridge, his namesake and lookalike is canvassing hard in Teddington.

Boris the guinea pig, known locally as 'the other Boris', belongs to Hilary Watson, who sent us this shot of him on the campaign trail.

The other Boris also made an appearance on the Daily Politics Show with Andrew Neil on April 30.

While it remains to be seen if Mr Johnson can attract enough support to become an MP, his furry doppelganger is continuing to gain support and fans in Teddington.
