Can You Recognise These Geordie Celebs Carved Into Pumpkins?

Forget your typical spooky faces or Halloween-themed designs - these special pumpkins have been carved with famous faces. And not just any celebrity faces!

Asda customers and colleagues from 46 stores in the North East were asked to pick their favourite local stars. The top four were then carved into giant pumpkins and the results are pretty amazing.

So which celeb is the region's favourite? It was a tough competition, but the people voted Grantchester actor Robson Green as their favourite Geordie star. See the full top 10 list below. 

  1. Robson Green
  2. Cheryl
  3. Alan Shearer and Scarlet Moffat
  4. Charlotte Crosby
  5. Jade Thirlwall
  6. Denise Welch
  7. Gaz Beadle
  8. Vicky Pattinson
  9. Sarah Millican
 

Cramlington-born Robson Green came out on top with a landslide victory, securing 32 per cent of the votes. Singer Cheryl came in second place with 25 per cent, followed by footie star Alan Shearer and Gogglebox's Scarlet Moffat who secured joint third place in the vote.

These famous local faces were carved onto giant Halloween pumpkins – which are currently available at Asda stores and priced at just £1 each. Don't they look life-like?

Lindsay Goldsbrough, Asda’s SD of North East supercentres, said: “It wouldn’t be Halloween without pumpkins – and we’ve got a bumper crop this year at Asda with large pumpkins, so colleagues have been busy getting creative to show to customers what you can do with a pumpkin carving kit – available in store – and a bit of imagination!

“We are really proud of our region and after taking inspiration from some fantastic pumpkin carvings on social media, colleagues who work in the region’s stores thought this would be a great way to celebrate Halloween.

“We couldn’t decide who to carve and in the end asked people to vote for a top three – but ended up doing four.

“I’m not sure if they will see them, but I hope if Scarlet, Cheryl, Alan or Robson see their pumpkin tributes that they like them!”
