The latest film from Aardman Animations features a grumpy waiter who looks even more like the Labour leader.
Whether or not the potential Prime-Minister-in-waiting was purposefully spoofed as a plasticine waiter is unclear, but the two do look incredibly similar.
Spot the difference…

The Labour leader is no stranger to the correlation between himself and the famous fictional icon. In a speech in 2014 he said: “I am not from central casting. You can find people who are more square-jawed, more chiselled, look less like Wallace.”
‘Wallace And Gromit’ spin-off ‘Shaun The Sheep’ premiered in London on Sunday and hits the big screens on 6 February. Until then, you can catch Ed Miliband’s dead ringer in the trailer at 1.23.
Aardman Animations were approached for comment but have yet to respond.
