Social media users were quick to spot similarities between the suspect crook and the BBC Radio 5 Live presenter – including their distinctive round head.

Police released images of a man after cash and jewellery were stolen in a burglary in Hawkhurst in Kent, last week.

They force said: “We are now looking to identify the man pictured in the image who may have important information.”

But after spotting the police snaps, social media users flooded in with ridiculing comments.

One social media user joked: “Adrian Chiles has let himself go.”

Another said: “Saw him on the one show just yesterday.”

A third chipped in with: “Adrian Chiles has let himself go.”

And a fourth added: “Adrian Chiles? Times are ‘ard!”

But the former One Show host Adrian – who is rumoured to be dating Labour Party MP Rosie Duffield – was not the only face that sprang to mind.

Others compared the pictured man to Wayne Rooney, Benny Hill, or a relative of CBeebies favourite Mr Tumble.

Officers said in the appeal that they called out at 11.30am on Wednesday after a house in Hawkhurst, Kent, was broken into.

Kent Police said: “Officers attended the scene have carried out house to house enquiries.

“Potential forensic evidence has also been recovered by crime scene investigators.

“Detectives are now looking to identify the man pictured in the image who may have important information.”
