How might they have looked if Alex Salmond had been born an Alexandra? Or Jack McConnell a Jacqueline?
This is the weighty question we can finally answer thanks to a viral new app.
FaceApp — for those of us with far too much time on our hands — has become the internet hit of the last few days as millions have gawped in wonder at some of the most famous faces in the world manipulated into the opposite gender.
It all started with former US Presidents, and then moved to UK Prime Ministers.
Which, inevitably, got us thinking: how would Scotland’s list of First Ministers have looked if they had been born a different gender?
Since the Scottish Parliament reconvened in 1999, we have had six First Ministers — five male and one female.
So here, in order of term of office, are Donald Dewar, Jim Wallace, Henry McLeish, Jack McConnell, Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon.
Who most catches your eye?
