Was riding home yesterday past a group of lads, one shouts 'Look it's the bloke off The One Show'. And he meant it too. Presume he meant Adrian Chiles and not Christine whatsername.

At a push in a dark alley with a squint there might be a passing resemblance between the two of us. Anyone else own up to looking a bit like someone more famous? The more tenuous the better I reckon.

    With a change of glasses and at a distance I might look, by moonlight a bit like the bald guy from the gadget show, sort of!

    Here's one of me. I'm sure you'll agree, the resemblance is uncanny:

    any chance this person rides some kind of recumbent bicycle and also likes roller skating?

    I'm not dissimilar to Damon Hill, circa 1997. I don't think I've got that funny mouth thing going on though. And I'm not fantastically wealthy.

    LiT wins the award so far then, in the face of some thin competition mind :)

    I'm waiting for Porgy to confirm his resemblance to Action Man. That was your pic a while ago wasn't it?

    Why did you chose that photo in particular?
  • prawnyprawny Posts: 5,409
    So far I've been told I look like;

    Jamie Oliver

    Ronan Keating

    Christian Slater

    and most recently Tom Boonen by jonginge

    Not a bad result I reckon, apart from oliver, but his wife is stunning so I'll let that one go.

    Could these two look any more different? You're both quite wide of the mark so I'm gonna shut up.

    Incidentally I've also been told I look like Damon Hill circa 1996 - seem to be going grey at a similar speed too.

    Because I always get told I look like her, and this was the only picture I found where even I can see a resemblance. I put it on facebook and got lots of people saying 'my god, have you cut your hair?'.

    :shock:

    When I had hair, Yes...I did have it once... I walked into my local Drs surgery with Man Flu, ( I barely survived ). The new receptionist looked at me and went white.

    Then I spoke to her asking for an appointment, wondering what the matter was.
    She said, "Are you Freddy Star?" She was convinced I was.
    The Mrs thinks this is bloody hilarious now.

    In the 70's, I had really long hair. In the Top Rank in Cardiff I was tapped on the shoulder by a guy, wanting a dance, He thort I was a girl.
    I had him by the throat against the wall 2 seconds later...

    2 years ago, it was The Japanese guy from HERO :)

    random people came up in the nightclub and ask to have photo taken with them, first i thought they were just new in town or on holiday, then when i asked them why and they told me that they love the show HERO and i look like the japanese guy from that.

    then there were a few time people say that to me when i was out too


    now its Gok Wan..... :oops:

    random girls came up to me in a nightclub saying how much they love me and they are such a big fan of the show, at this point i thought they were talking about HERO so i played along and said "oh, thanks" then after the photo and all that she told me that she loves How To Look Good Nake!!

    since then sometimes there will be some random girls shouting "oh, there is Gok Wan" on the street.

    p.s. Gok Wan is 6" tall and skinny and I am 5"5 and ....well, non-skinny..so i really don't understand that one at all.... :?

    Why would you attack someone just because they thought you were a girl? Jeeez. :shock:

    Gosh, there is a resemblance :) Almost as good as Dale Winton and ITB - never been seen in the same room together. And is this not Greg66?
