Best friends for 16 YEARS discover they are long-lost sisters

Two best friends who have known each other 16 years have made an amazing discovery: they are sisters. Alison Slavin, 41, and Sam Davies, 43, found they share the same father after adopted child Alison tracked down her biological mother.

The pair from Bristol never suspected they were related despite living remarkably similar lives – they look alike, have similar taste in clothes, both work as childminders, have two children and live less than a mile apart. Alison made the discovery when a friend helped her trace her birth mother, who revealed her natural father was called Terry Cox.

She immediately recognised it as the name of Sam’s father – and DNA tests later confirmed the pair are half sisters.

Alison – who was a bridesmaid at Sam’s wedding – said: ‘We had joked in the past we were sisters as people used to always ask us if we were, saying we looked alike.

‘But I was shocked to find out we were actually half sisters. I could not get hold of Sam by phone so I texted her the words “Hello Sis”.
