It sounds like the start of a bad joke, but actually, it's a hilarious similarity!

We all know what the classic line-up of delicious pastry bake looks like sitting in the hot counters waiting to be eaten.

From steak to sausage and bean, all are presented in a deliciously golden flakiness and are scored in differently decorative ways.

And, we all know what King Henry VIII's shoes look like, right?


Well, actually, they look like a Greggs cheese and onion bake. Seriously!

Eagle-eyed Luke from Manchester couldn't help but notice a striking similarity between one of the nation's favourite pastries and the King's footwear, so promptly took to Twitter to share his revelation.

It wasn't long before Greggs cottoned on to the discovery, and tweeted that they were "losing their heads" over it.

(That's funny, 'cos King Henry VIII was prone to beheading his wives - very witty Greggs. *Applauds*).


But the lols didn't end there, as other social media users jumped on the Banter-wagon: 

Those who remember GCSE history will of course be aware that King Henry VIII did rather enjoy his food - and now we know exactly what it was he was partial to.

Seriously, what did we do before the joys of the internet?!
