David Beckham, Peter Kay: Manchester TV celebrity lookalikes - picture

By
An array of Manchester celebrity doppelgangers have been gathered for a group picture.

The 'living room' was set up by Virgin Media in Piccadilly Gardens, with the public being asked to try to name them all as part of the 'Manchester is watching TiVo' challenge.

A Virgin Media spokesman explained: "Manchester has arguably created some of the greatest TV moments and characters over the years.

"With so much sport, music, TV and film talent connected to this great city we felt it was only right to bring these legends together for the first time."

A survey was also carried out, in which the people of Greater Manchester were asked to name the celebrities who contributed in putting their city on the global entertainment map.

Coming top - and thus being named Manchester's 'King and Queen of TV' - were Peter Kay and Victoria Wood.

In addition, Professor Brian Cox and Bradley Wiggins were voted as 'honorary' residents due to their association with the area, with David Beckham close behind.
