NFU president Peter Kendall looks like David Beckham…apparently

NFU president Peter Kendall is a dead ringer for football star David Beckham and singer Barry Gibb, Farmers Weekly can reveal.

FW has run the pictures of several farm leaders and politicians through a website called My Heritage which uses face recognition technology to find the celebrity that people resemble the most.

According to the site, Mr Kendall looks 70% like Bee Gee Barry Gibb, 67% like David Beckham and 66% like actor Kevin Kline.

But if you keep scrolling through his results, rather worryingly, you also discover he apparently looks 57% like Elton John and 54% like ex-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher… (click here to see the full result for Mr Kendall – use the arrows under the celebrity picture to scroll through the different options.)

DEFRA secretary David Miliband came up as a 63% match for the flame-haired actor Rupert Grint, who is best known for his role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films.

But he also had a 63% match for American pop singer Justin Timberlake, who has been awarded several Sexiest Man titles from magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Teen People. (Click here for the full result.)

Other interesting matches include:

Junior DEFRA minister Ben Bradshaw –  70% match for Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York and possible US presidential candidate. (to view the result click here).
