Is Bake Off's Chigs Parmar related to singer Peter Andre?

The Great British Bake Off returned to our screens on September 21st with brand new bakers joining the tent to take their chances at winning the title of Bake Off Champion.

Whilst viewers have been admiring the baking, many have also been thrown off by contestant Chigs who has a celebrity lookalike.

Many convinced that Chigs and Peter Andre are long lost twins, Reality Titbit has had a look into the life of Chigs and found some photos to show off the similarities.

Who is Chigs on Bake Off?

40 years old, Chirag “Chigs” Parmar is a sales manager from Leicestershire.

Having only just taken up baking as a hobby during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, Chigs was inspired to learn his newfound skill from his family and friends.

Aside from baking, Chigs also has several other adventurous hobbies including skydiving, rock climbing and kayaking.

Are Chigs and Peter Andre related?

Despite the similarities, there are no known relations between Chigs and singer Peter Andre.

Over the first week of the show, viewers were quick to spot that baker Chigs Parmer has similarities in his appearance to well-known singer Peter Andre, who is famous for his hit singles ‘Mysterious Girl’ and ‘Flava’.

Chigs and Peter both have similarities in their brown eyes, dark hair and similar haircuts. Chigs can be seen in the photo below:

Peter is also just eight years older than Chigs – meaning they cannot be twins – and can be seen in the below photo:

Twitter reactions to Peter Andre and Chigs

Although many have claimed that Chigs is a Peter Andre lookalike, not all Twitter fans are in agreement. As some do see the similarities, they believe that Chigs resembles some other famous faces.

One Twitter user claimed that Chigs instead looks more like professional footballer, Kyle Walker who plays for Manchester City. Others have also claimed that he looks like English football coach, Gary Neville.

However, Innocent Drinks took to Twitter to take their stance on the debate and agreed that Chigs is a Peter Andre lookalike but also mixed with a young Robert De Niro.
