A Russian model has attracted a huge number of followers since she looks the spitting image of a Marvel star.

Yekaterina Shumskaya, also known as Kate, is a Scarlett Johansson lookalike, and truly her resemblance to the actress is uncanny.

Kate goes by the username mimisskate on Instagram and Tiktok, and has attracted 10.2 million followers on the latter platform.

Since her first post in February, she has been hired by an agency and relocated from her home town of Maykop to Moscow in May to work.

Kate tells The Mirror: "I'd love one day to film a series of videos of me travelling to America to meet Scarlett Johansson herself.

"My followers always ask if I've ever spoken to her or whether Scarlett knows if I exist."

Kate is earning enough from modelling to support herself and her parents.

Kate also spoke about an incident around dressing up as Scarlett Johannson when 'Black Widow' came out.

She says: "Once my followers from all around the world encouraged me to go to the Moscow premiere of 'Black Widow' as Scarlett, as she was starring in it.

"I dressed up and went down to the centre of town with a photographer, but no-one came out to see me. People just looked at me as if I was a weirdo!

"I was so embarrassed that I burst into tears and ran to a cafe to get changed.

"Ironically, in the toilets, once I'd taken off my 'Black Widow' costume, a girl came up to me and asked, 'Do people often tell you you look like Scarlett Johansson?' and I just screamed!"
