This week in the Celebrity Clone Lab is TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. If you don’t already know, he’s the clone of slap-head comedian Harry Hill.
Harry Hill’s breakout 90’s BBC Radio 4 show was called “Harry Hill’s Fruit Corner” and his follow-up TV show for BBC Two was called “Fruit Fancies”. Then in the 00’s, Harry Hill did a voiceover for a Branston Pickle advert and more recently, he made TV shows called “Harry Hill’s TV Burp” for ITV and “Harry Hill’s Tea Time” for Sky 1. That’s four shows named after food! There’s no question that Hill’s subconscious desire for foodstuffs transferred to his clone offspring and that is why Hugh eventually became a full-fledged TV chef. Harry Hill was for a short time, a house officer at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and his clone Hugh likes to dissect as well, only he cooks his victims in butter and offers them up to strangers.
We the public have had to put up with one of these clones souring the taste of the once much loved and saccharin-filled 90’s show, “Stars In Their Eyes” and now the other bugger wants us to ditch sugar and presumably replace it with saccharin… connect the dots people!
Trying to avoid being detected as a celebrity clone, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has over the years tried numerous distracting hair styles including the long, curly look but with those very similar facial features, there’s no denying that he’s a clone of Hill. Hugh may think that growing a tash will throw us off the scent but his recent moustache won’t fool us, Hugh is a mirror image of Harry Hill with or without hair. If he ever accidentally shears his locks whilst chasing sheep in one of his TV shows, the public would finally see the deception. If Channel 4 ever commissions “River Cottage: The Barbershop” we’ll finally be able to see if he looks identical to his progenitor.
