Nothing goes quite as well with a cup of coffee after a hard day’s work than Harry Styles covered in brown sauce in a white roll.
Paul McInnes, 42, spent last Sunday afternoon working out at the gym.
‘So I thought I’d treat myself and my other half, Kim, to a bacon sandwich,’ Paul, who works at traffic management company Metro Traffic Services, tells Metro.co.uk.
He swung by his local Lidl in Maidstone, Kent, to buy a pack of bacon medallions.
But throwing the eight slabs of pink and floppy pork on a sheet of tin foil, Paul noticed something.
As it was, one of the bacon slices perfectly matched the tousled hair and square jawline of the One Direction star, 28.
‘I took it out of the pack and put it on the tray and I started laughing in the kitchen and my other half was wondering what I was laughing at,’ Paul says.
‘So I took it over to her, and say that the bacon looks just like Harry Styles – she found it hilarious!
‘The whole pack came out looking like Harry Styles. Eight identical Harry Styles.
‘Kim Googled a picture of Harry Styles to compare and the first picture she found looked exactly like it. I sent it to all my friends on WhatsApp.’
‘Later on, I was reading about how someone’s KFC was in the shape of England. But I think our Harry Styles one is a lot funnier,’ Paul adds.
Paul admits he’s not actually a fan of the pop prince’s music, though. ‘His music isn’t quite my taste,’ he says.
But bacon Harry is. ‘He’s a sexy man and he made a tasty bacon roll,’ Paul says.
‘After being at the gym, exactly what I needed was eating the face of Harry Styles.’
Maybe it’s a sign of the times, what with the cost-of-living crisis, the looming threat of World War Three and constant political turmoil at home, but it’s not just bacon that people have seen celebrities in.
One mum was convinced that she had borne witnesses to the second coming of greasy Christ after seeing a pizza box oil stain look like the face of Jesus.
While a Beatles superfan found John Lennon looking right back at him in his pint of beer.
‘We were saying today that, next time we go to the supermarket,’ Paul adds, ‘we might end up with a piece of bacon looking like Dame Judi Dench.’
