Georgia and Jack, from Liverpool, have been lifelong best friends, often joking that they are in fact related. Incredibly, this has turned out to be the case.

Over 40,000 babies have been have been born through sperm , egg or embryo donation in Britain over the past 20 years. Georgia and Jack knew they were both conceived via IVF and once Jack accessed his records, he discovered he had a sister born in 1998, meaning there was a small chance they could be siblings.

Georgia then requested her records and she tweeted: “After weeks of sitting by the letter box with both excitement and dread. Today we found we have the same sperm donor so we genuinely are brother and sister after all. Happiest person ever right now. To all those who were IVF, request your details – best thing I’ve ever done. Miracles can happen.”
