Shaunagh Roberts was preparing to chop the traditional festive veg when she spotted the face of Christ in one of the sprouts, which she also suggested could be the face of Johnny Depp.

She told The Metro newspaper: "I was taking out the sprouts, topping and tailing them, and putting a cross on the bottom. When I saw the face I remember thinking 'oh my God, it could be Jesus' what with it being so close to Christmas.

"I didn’t have the heart to cook him so I left the sprout in a corner cupboard and he just sat up there for a little while.

"I thought it was funny and it was even funnier because I found him just before Christmas. When I saw the face I shouted to the kids, 'Look, I don’t know if it’s Johnny Depp or Jesus'."
