Dirty Pretty Things frontman CARL BARAT has become the subject of relentless teasing by his bandmates, because his surname sounds similar to Sacha Baron Cohen's creation BORAT.
The former LIBERTINE, 28, is not amused by the jokes and has asked his bandmates to stop.
The band's bassist DIDZ HAMMOND says, "It's a running joke we just won't let lie.
"The parallels between the two are strong enough on their own - even without them practically having the same name, so we bring it up every so often.
"Put a moustache on him and it's the same man."
