Match Of The Day presenter Gary Lineker was flavour of the month after a food artist created a gastronomic portrait of him.
Prudence Staite used 28 punnets of blueberries, 16 aubergines, 31 packets of mushrooms and 72 pieces of cheese to create the picture, which is 3.5 metres by 3 metres in size.
The former England striker said the results were "outstanding".
He said: "The artist has been very kind on my old cauliflower ears and has highlighted my fantastically cheesy grin."
Lineker is fronting a new campaign for Walkers which is releasing three "mystery flavours" of crisps in shops and asking people to guess what they are.
The firm's marketing director Miranda Sambles said: "This remarkable image contains over 500 different food types and is something that we hope will inspire the Great British public to get guessing."
