Forget Tories4Corbyn, a new craze is taking hold of Conservative politicians across the country. With Jeremy Corbyn's popularity now at an all-time high, he has amassed a hoard of female fans who have described him as sexy in 'a world weary sea dog' sort of way. Now it seems the Tories too want in on the action.

In a bid to look more like the man of the moment, David Gauke -- who is the current Financial Secretary to the Treasury -- has grown his beard out in the style of Corbyn.

What's more, he's not alone; Ed Vaizey has also been taken in by the trend:

Perhaps the Tories should be worried about Corbyn after all.
