GARY Lineker appears to have achieved his goal of turning into KFC’s silver-bearded Colonel Sanders.

It is part of a collaboration between the finger-licking chicken chain and Walkers Max crisps.

Fans previously poked fun at the Match of the Day host, 60, after he grew a white goatee.

One posted: “Gary Lineker’s looking more and more like Colonel Sanders every week.”

A source said: “Signing up Gary for another three years is a huge coup for Walkers as he is now synonymous with the brand.

“But while Gary is normally known for being the face of the crisp adverts, going forward they’re taking him in a new direction.

“Gary is going to take on a higher role which will see him acting more as an ambassador for the brand.”

The Sun revealed last year that he has signed a £1.2million, three-year ambassadorial deal with Walkers.
