With chances fairly high that Leo Varadkar will be Ireland's next Taoiseach, albeit possibly for a short time, it's about time we got to know the real man behind the image.

For Leo is just like me or you. Desperately clinging on to our youth while we can.

Here's all the times the 38-year-old Dubliner was your spirit animal:

1. The time he got hit in the head with a microphone


2. Or when he dished out Lion Bars in his early political career

Give the people what they want.

3. He loves going to Electric Picnic 

Who doesn't?

4. That time he hosted his own radio show

Leading to a sick burn from his rivals.

5. Or when he stumbled upon an armed robbery

Only Leo...

6. The historic moment he came out on live TV

With Miriam O'Callaghan.

7. Finally, when he declared himself a fan of Blur

The Oasis or Blur debate was put to bed for many.
