David Beckham and Holly Willoughby Make the Perfect Family

By Nathan Lee, TLE Correspondent 

The perfect family would have David Beckham as dad and  Holly Willoughby as mum, a new poll has revealed.

The study found the perfect family would have two sisters and two brothers, with Adele and Rhianna revealed as the perfect siblings. Singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran was in the top spot for the brother, with Jump Street star Channing Tatum also a personality Brits would want to fill the position.

But the perfect family extends further than the immediate members of mum dad and siblings, it also includes aunty, uncle and even grandmother. English Actress Helena Bonham Carter has been named as the perfect celebrity aunt with her unconventional and eccentric sense of fashion and string of films under her belt. Britain’s Got Talent judge and Little Britain star David Walliams would be the uncle, which would make for some interesting Christmas dinners.

Perhaps surprisingly, second choice mum and dad turned out to be Sharon and Ozzy Osborne according to the study. Other celebs considered to be great for the role of aunty and uncle were said to be Jennifer Saunders and Elton John.

Natascha Crump, General Manager for Ripley’s Believe it or Not! London which commissioned the study, said: “As a popular family visitor attraction, it’s interesting to see who people think would make up the perfect family. David Beckham has a lot of qualities that lead him to being a great role model for children, so it’s not surprising Brits see him as the perfect father figure.

“We love quirky and unusual characters it was great to see Ozzy Osborne on the list and I’m sure he’d be interesting person to have around the house!

“Holly Willoughby is also a good choice for a mum, she’s got a caring personality and three children of her own.

“But we can also see why Sharon Osborne has the potential to be a fun mum to have around with her larger than life personality.”
