The competition to decide which 1980s pop stars most resemble alpacas is hotting up. Early bids from Kajagoogooâ€™s Limahl (â€˜too many straggly bitsâ€™) and keyboard wizard Howard Jones (â€˜too spikyâ€™) have fallen by the wayside. The smart money is on two trios which enjoyed chart success in the early part of the decade: The Fun Boy Three and the Thompson Twins. Expert judge Carl Harrison said: â€˜Itâ€™s vital the subject looks as if a clump of bright wool has landed randomly on the top of the head, ideally obscuring the eyes.â€™
Besides 80s pop stars other celebrity/alpaca lookalike suggestions pouring in to the alpaca desk at DND include England goalkeeper Jo Hart; Sex Pistol singer John Lyndon and The Onedin Line actor Peter Gilmore.
