After being named as the new Captain Bird’s Eye earlier this year and setting many hearts aflame, Italian model Riccardo Acerbi is now the star of the food brand’s 2019 calendar.
Dressed demurely in a series of nautical themed outfits, the 56 year old can be seen posing with an array of seasonal props including a ship’s wheel, mistletoe and of course fish fingers.
Rebecca Nascimento, Birds Eye spokesperson, said: ‘It’s no exaggeration to say the new contemporary version of the Captain has caught the eye and captured the hearts of the British public, so we wanted to thank them for their support and give them a chance to keep him close every day of the year.”
