THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been etched into a pumpkin in spook-tacular style!
These incredible images show the handiwork of a record breaking pumpkin carver who has etched famous faces into pumpkins.
Dave Finkle, 34, chose the Royal couple and X Factor star Sharon Osbourne for his latest carvings.
The record-breaking pumpkin carver also showcased his impressive skills on Blue Peter.
Dave wowed presenters Barney Harwood, Lindsey Russell and Radzi Chinyanganya during yesterday's live show.
The farm manager at Barleylands, in Billericay, etched their faces into decorative lanterns and gave young viewers hints and tips on how to make sure their pumpkins stand out this year.
Mr Finkle holds two Guinness World Records for the fastest pumpkin carving – just 20.03 seconds – and carving the most pumpkins in an hour - 102.
He discovered his hidden talent in 2008 when he took part in a village pumpkin-growing contest in aid of Essex Air Ambulance.
The farmer, from Little Baddow, near Chelmsford, did not win the competition but went on to realise he could do something different with the winter vegetable.
Following his appearance on the hit BBC children's programme, youngsters will be able to see his talents close-up during the half term PumpkinFest at Barleylands next week.
Mr Finkle said: "I hope that by demonstrating my carving on Blue Peter it will inspire children with their own Halloween pumpkins. I am really looking forward to PumpkinFest in the Barleylands Farm Park and can’t wait to see what the youngsters create. From Monday to Friday it’s going to be spooktacular fun.”
Mr Finkle made his amazing creations at Dobbies Garden Centre in Kent.
