London - (RIP Mess): "The two could have been identical twins, spawned by some anonymous gangland capo and separated at birth to conceal their true ID," conspiracy theory sources said today.
But McQueen family members were staying resolutely schtum as the body of the famous frock designer was taken away for post mortem analysis.
Also tight-lipped was Location! Location! presenter Phil Spencer whose uncanny resemblance to ther deceased clothes designer had fuelled the DNA rumor-mill for decades.
"Phil's got enough on his plkate as it is, give the man a break!" the property show's gaffer commented today.
"What with that goddawful Kirsty Allsop co-presenter and her corpulent wobbly arse always in front of the camera Phil's got his work cut out for himself."
This weekend UK tabloids continued their forage in McQueen's colorful and somewhat dubious past after toeing the party line about his depression at losing his mother recently.
Audits of his personal finances have revealed a remarkable generosity to his ex-'husband' as well as regular beneficient handouts to current boyfriend/shag, labelled by UK media sources as 'an anonymous porn star'.
The designer's funeral takes place on Monday.
it is not known if Spencer and/or Allsop will attend.
