When most people introduce themselves, they say who they are.
But Kim Davenport has to begin introductions by saying who she isn’t – Sharon Osbourne
The mum-of-two who works at Gloucestershire Airport bears a striking resemblance to the X-Factor judge and is constantly having to tell people that she is not the wife of heavy metal singer-songwriter Ozzy Osbourne.
Even Kim’s children have confused her with the larger-than-life TV star.
When her 11-year-old son Kieran was younger, he used to see pictures of Sharon Osbourne and point, saying ‘mummy’.
Her colleagues at the Staverton airport, where is business development manager, also call her Sharon.
And when Kim, from Brockworth, hosts meetings with clients, she often has to head-off the whispering and glances by saying she is not Sharon.
But 48-year-old Kim, who also has a daughter, Melissa, 18, has now decided to make a virtue of her resemblance to the star.
“I have signed up for a lookalike group based in Worcester,” she said.
“I am not sure if I will get any work, but I thought I would give it a try.
“They are an Abba tribute band who also have other lookalikes on their book.
“But I won’t be trying to do an impression of Sharon though.”
Kim has already spent a day as Sharon a few years ago on the Isle of Man during their X-Factor style talent hunt.
And she is more than used to be mistaken for the former America’s Got Talent judge.
“It’s quite the ice-breaker when I am hosting meetings with people who haven’t met me,” she said.
“I can start off by saying that I am not Sharon Osbourne.”
“And a lot of people come up to me and say that I do look like here.
“I was on holiday with a group of friends once and they stopped the music to say that Sharon Osbourne had entered the bar.
“And I don’t mind at all and I really like Sharon, although we are very different characters, and I respect her as a mother.”
