Creepy artist’s impression shows what Brits believe an alien would look like

It comes as three in 10 believe aliens and UFOs are real – and four in 10 reckon they walk in the same way as humans.

This artist’s impression shows what Brits reckon an alien would look like – with two heads, gills, and the ability to change colour. Researchers asked 2,000 people to describe what they think an ET looks like – and found it is typically 5ft tall, with webbed feet and green tufts of hair.

Four in 10 (43 percent) reckon aliens would converse in their own, made-up language, and 22 percent believe they’d have 360-degree vision. The lifeform would also have long, skinny limbs, and walk like a human.

International UFO researcher, Philip Mantle, who has teamed up with BLAZE, which is airing a series of documentaries as part of UFO Week, said: “When thinking about what extra-terrestrial life may look like, we just have to look at the diversity of life here on Earth to see how strange things can get.

“We humans, and other apes, are actually in a minority of being two-legged, upright beings. As for aliens, there are two arguments – the first is they would look far different than our human minds could ever imagine.

“The second is that aliens look pretty much like us as the upright hominid figure, with hands that have a thumb like ours – the exact shape designed by mother nature that enables us to be the top of the food chain both here on earth, and anywhere else “out there” too.”

The research also found three is the magic number, with adults believing aliens would have three eyes, ears, and arms – but 17 percent think the ears would not be visible.

Despite having gills, those surveyed believe the beings would also have a nose, too, so they could breathe both in and out of water.

But some of the top similarities to a human include walking in the same way (40 percent), and having an oval head (36 percent).

In terms of abilities, aliens would be able to read people’s minds (21 percent), teleport (20 percent), and speak all languages (20 percent).

And their skin would be camouflaged, blending with their surroundings like chameleons, according to 17 percent of those polled.

The research, commissioned via OnePoll, found 31 percent believe aliens and UFOs are real – and 18 percent even think Earth will one day experience a space invasion.

And despite 52 percent arguing it’s unlikely aliens are already living among us, 17 percent have reported a UFO or alien sighting to the police.

A spokesman for BLAZE, which is airing the documentaries at 8pm tomorrow (Monday), on Freeview, added: “We may never actually find out what aliens look like, or proof that they exist, but it’s interesting to visualise based on the thoughts of the British public.

“Extraterrestrial creatures have been a staple of sci-fi films, TV shows, and video games for decades, which will have influenced our idea of what they look like.

“UFO Week will encourage the nation to think about life on other planets, and the possibility that one day we may come into contact with other lifeforms and UFOs.”
