If your mate dropped out of a group holiday would you track down someone of the same name to take up the ticket & have a free holiday?http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-39492096
A group of friends planning a trip to Majorca asked a complete stranger to go with them when a friend dropped out - because he had the same name.
The 10 friends from Bristol turned to Facebook and found a Joe McGrath in Stockport who agreed to go on the paid-for trip for a 30th birthday.
The 21-year-old said they were "an absolutely lovely group of people".
"They messaged 15 other Joe McGraths on Facebook and only one was stupid enough to reply, and that was me," he said.
Namesake bromance delights the internet
He admitted he thought it was a bit of a joke at first, but after chatting to one of the friends on the phone Joe realised "he was just up for inviting a random guy".
Joe added: "After a couple of days debate and re-assuring myself it was a legit offer for a free trip, I decided to take the plunge and drove down to Bristol on Saturday.
