The fans have spoken…

Directioners took to social media earlier this week to point out the semi-glaringly obvious fact that Niall Horan could easily become Gordon Ramsay in a few decades. Let us explain…

A tweet went around showing a side-by-side shot of the professional chef and reality TV star alongside the One Direction singer—and it's safe to say that the similarities are staggering!

But before we knew it, Ramsay himself hopped on the social media frenzy to give his two cents on the look-alike craze, and whaddyaknow, he agrees!

OK, so he didn't exactly wax poetic about the crooner, but he did manage to retweet the original tweet—which in 2015 is basically the equivalent of a stamp of approval or an enthusiastic "Yassssss!"

Directioners didn't end their comparisons there, either.

They also mentioned that one of Ramsay's closest friends, David Beckham (you may have heard of him), could possibly pass for an older (like fine wine older, you guys, calm down) Liam Payne.

Flattery will get you everywhere these days! But all jokes aside, the two definitely have some similar facial features and coloring, and we're guessing that both men would be pleased by the comparisons.

But tell us, what do you think of the One Direction celebrity comparison?!
