Britain finally has its own answer to ‘hot mugshot guy’.

Guxim Imerio, 25, is wanted by Lanarkshire Police after he absconded from Dungavel Immigration Centre in South Lanarkshire on Monday evening.

But the Albanian has now found a legion of unlikely support after his mugshot was posted on Lanarkshire Police’s Facebook page, with users immediately taking a shine to the photo.

One wrote: “He’s a stunningly handsome man….”

Another said: “The police may aswell give up the noo. This guys [sic] tied up in some cougars dungeon. He’ll no be seen again.”

Others, meanwhile, praised him for escaping the detention centre.

“How about we just stop locking people up in immigration centres in the first place!!!!!!”, one user said.

Imerio is described as “5ft 6, average build with short black hair and brown eyes.

“He has a clear complexion with an oval face and sharp features, and is possibly unshaven. ”

His unlikely support is similar to that of American Jeremy Meeks, who set the internet alight in 2014 when he became known as the ‘hot mugshot guy’.

After facing federal fun charges when he was arrested and faced federal gun charges in California in 2014 and his sexy mugshot was posted on Facebook by the Stockton Police Department.

He has since been released from prison and is now dating the daughter of billionaire Philip Green after landing a modelling contract.
