Fans believe Wicks’ resemblance to the Spaniard is as amazing as the £62million fee Brighton received.
And the TV presenter showed attack can be the best form of defence as he quickly posted: “Loads of people congratulating me on signing for @ChelseaFC” – followed by crying with laughter emojis.
And with Chelsea visiting Everton on Saturday evening for their Premier League opener, one follower tweeted: “Congratulations Joe mate, good luck tomorrow.”
Social media star Wicks and left-back Cucurella would be uncannily similar even if they didn’t have the same curly long brown hair and beard.

One fan joked: “You are a man of many talents.”
Some even suggested Wicks, 36, could stand in for the 24-year-old at Stamford Bridge.
“Long lost twin possible?” was one suggestion, with the poster adding: “You look like Cucurella more than Cucurella himself.”
