Cops release e-fit of wanted burglar with uncanny resemblance to Take That star

Police in Kent have released an e-fit of a man they would like to speak to regarding a burglary – and he bears an uncanny resemblance to Take That star Gary Barlow.

The suspect broke into a house in the town of Deal on December 17 and now officers pray he will be found.

After the homeowners were woken during the early hours incident a woman at the address was punched during a struggle that ensued, before the offender escaped via a window. Police say no items were reported as stolen, however.

Responding to the appeal on Facebook, one user simply wrote: "Gary Barlow."

Another replied: "Came here to type that myself, ha!"

A third added: "That's unmistakably Gary Barlow. Incredible what a Tory government will eventually make people do. So sad."

And a fourth said: "Gary Barlow has let himself down a bit."

A statement from the force reads: Kent Police was called to a property in Cannon Street following a report of a burglary which had taken place between 4.15am and 4.25am on Saturday, December 17, 2022.

"The occupants had woken up to find an intruder and when confronted by one of them, he made threats to harm them if they did not give him the house keys.

"A struggle ensued before the offender climbed out of a window and left the house. During the incident a woman was punched. Nothing has been reported stolen.

"Officers would like to speak to anyone who has information regarding the burglary, or recognises the man depicted in the efit.
