He is the spitting image of his dad

Vernon Kay has sent his fans wild after sharing an incredible throwback photo of him as a youngster.

The All Star Family Fortunes host uploaded the snap to Instagram showing himself, his mum, dad and younger brother Stephen.

The star looked very different in the picture but his dark hair and huge smile definitely gave it away.

Vernon, 43, captioned the shot: “#tb Mum and Dad on point.. @stekay95 and myself… not so much. #family.”

Fans rushed to comment on the post with one saying: “Fab photo!! Photo to treasure.”

Another added: “Gorgeous family Vernon.”

“You and @stekay95 look so cute too… what happened,” another joked.

Others were shocked at how much the presenter looked like his dad, Norman.

One commented: “You’re your dad’s double.”

“How much do you look like your dad 😱,” another said.

One added: “You are so like your father!”

Vernon is known for presenting primetime game show All Star Family Fortunes since 2006.

He also hosted Vernon Kay’s Gameshow Marathon after replacing presenting duo Ant & Dec who hosted the first series.

In his personal life the star has been married to model Tess Daly, 48, since 2003.

The couple have two daughters – Phoebe, 12, and Amber, eight.

But their marriage has all been plain sailing.

Earlier last month Tess was bombarded with messages from fans who told her to “get rid” of Vernon following cheating claims late last year.

Vernon hit the headlines when he was caught sexting glamour model Rhian Sugden in 2010.

The dad-of-two was then forced to publicly apologise to his wife on Radio 1 after the messages emerged.

He went on to promise live on air that he would no longer contact the blonde model.

But just before Christmas last year Venon reportedly got back in touch with Rhian which caused tension in his and Tess’ relationship.

He was said to want to “reconnect” and stored her number as a different name in his phone.

At the time, a source told The Sun: “It was just like 2010 all over again. But he knew the stakes were high and said to Rhian: ‘We simply can’t afford to get caught like we did before — it would kill me’.”

The source continued: “Vernon admitted he was being an idiot – but then in the next breath he was asking if Rhian was free to have a chat.

“She wasn’t sure quite what his game was but she was prepared to meet him because she feels he left her high and dry six years ago and she wanted some answers from him.

“It takes two to tango but it was Vernon who came up with some specific dates when he could sneak away from Tess to meet Rhian in a hotel.”
