KAY Burley has made it into another American drama series - well not quite.

Just before Homeland aired on Channel 4 on Sunday. The continuity announcer said Carrie Mattheson, played by Claire Danes, was going to be disguised as Kay Burley as part of a secret mission.

As she donned the wig, there was some (if a little vague) resemblance to the Beech Hill newscaster.

People took to Twitter to express their delight: Nick Stylianou posted: “A disguise that makes Carrie look like @KayBurley” in #Homeland now, apparently. Is Channel 4’s continuity announcer a bit besotted?” and Phil Fandango ‏tweeted: “Carrie does look like Kay Burley!”
