Joan Collins took to Instagram this week after a photo of her young granddaughter Ava Grace, 16, reminded her of another young beauty.

Sharing a sweet post on Wednesday (3 February), the actress compared Ava Grace's smiling face side by side with a photograph of herself just a few years older at age 20, in her 1955 film Land of the Pharaohs.

Joan captioned the comparison snap: "My beautiful granddaughter Ava Grace Newley at 16 looking a lot like me at 20."

Followed by the hashtags #lookalikes and #appledoesntfallfarfromthetree.

We can certainly see the family resemblance, especially in the face shape and the eyes.

Fans and followers could see the similarities too.

One told Joan: "Wow she definitely looks like you, very beautiful x," while another said: "What a pretty girl, hope she grows into a beautiful lady like you." A third wrote: "Oh your granddaughter is beautiful! Just like you Joan x x."

One even noted a resemblance to another family member too, writing: "She certainly looks like you also her grandfather. Beautiful"

Ava Grace is the only child of Joan's son, Alexander Newley. Alexander 'Sasha' Newley was the son of Joan's second husband, the late Antony Newley, who died in 1999 five years before granddaughter Ava Grace was born.
