Big Brother: War In Wakefield, the UK’s Lookalike Capital

by | 16th, July 2007

WAKEFIELD is awash with stars.

Who knew that Wakefield, not permanently settled until the Germanic tribe, the Angles sailed up the Calder and decided to make it their home sometime in the 5th–6th century AD, the centre of the Rhubarb Triangle, was Britain’s look-alike capital?

And, as the Sun reports, Chanelle (15-1 to win) has “declared war” on one Katie Cheeseman.

Chanelle looks like Victoria Beckham, it says here. Ms Cheeseman, 23, looks like Katie Andre minus the Jordans.

“Chanelle thinks Wakefield’s only got room for one celeb lookalike,” says the Sun’s headline.

Katie says Chanelle is a “bitch, a bully and a poser”. She goes on: “Wakefield is a small city. Everyone knows everybody else.”

Posh lookalikes know Jordan lookalikes know someone who looks a bit like Wayne Rooney who has a dog that looks like Roly from EastEnders. And so on all the way to Pontefract.

“My boyfriend and I are always called Peter and Jordan,” says Cheeseman. “It’s a bit of a giggle and he likes to flash his six-pack whenever Peter’s song Mysterious Girl is played.”

That this tune should be played at all comes as no small shock. But then the DJ who looks like Bruno Brooks likes to keep it real.
