With a spot to fill on their vacation to Mallorca, the gang had set out to find a replacement to take their friend Joe McGrath's space. With the flight booked in Joe's name, they had to find someone with the same name - and they did.

After discussing the idea with his girlfriend Becky, and his boss Clint, Joe decided to go.

"I was at a gig in town when I first got the message and I just thought it was rubbish but it kept playing in the back of my mind," Joe said.

"I looked at Dan's profile and after speaking to him on the phone I realized he was genuine.

"Something like this will never happen to me again and I would always regret it if I didn't do it."

"They are such a great bunch of people," Joe said. "I'm hopefully going back to Bristol again soon and there might be more holidays in future."
