British woman, whose twin sister is a party girl, used twin's passport to join ISIS

The pair of identical twins may look alike, but their outlook on life could not be more different.

One of them, Jalila Henry, is a wild party girl who is more often than not pictured in revealing clothes and also drinks and smokes.

In her free time, Jalila, 21, likes watching trashy British reality show The Only Way is Essex.

Her twin Jamila, on the other hand, converted to Islam and wears a traditional headscarf.

Jamila spends her time reading the Quran. 

There was a brief confusion when reports emerged that Jalila, the wilder twin, had been detained by authorities in Turkey for allegedly being en route to join jihadi group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

In fact, one relative joked that she was more likely to have ended up in Turkey after getting carried away from a night of partying.

However, it was soon revealed that Jamila had been traveling with her sister's passport instead.

After seizing Jamila, Turkish security services alleged that messages and images on her phone suggested that she was planning to head to ISIS territory to join the cause.

Jamila will be brought back to the UK, where she faces charges of preparing acts of terrorism.

Meanwhile, Jalila, who lives in South London, said that she had "loads to sort out".

The twins' parents - a painter and decorator father and a mother who works as a council housing officer - are discussing with relatives how to react to the arrest.

An estimated 600 Britons have gone to Syria or Iraq to join militant groups there.
