No, it's true. You are a slightly darker skin than the majority of white guys.

Definitely a Pakistani.
The fact that you're a pharmacist means you'll fit right in with the Asian community.

I think they're pulling your leg. I would just think you're an average British white dude.

I would say somewhat Kurdish looking, but definitely can see why you get the comparisons with the wavy black hair and olive looking skin (or maybe just harsh camera flash).

I think you should have a chat with your Mother OP, she may not be telling you the entire truth about who your Dad is (or vice versa).

My Mum and Dad are both White British and I am quite certain he is my REAL dad

I'm arab and I agree that you do kind of look arab. You look like you could be half arab or lebanese or syrian.

Genetics are a funny thing. I am guessing that you are darker skinned than your parents which is why you are questioning it. Odds are that some of your relatives (even distant ones) had olive skin which is where you get yours from.

My dad is very dark from a Jewish background and my mum is very fair skinned Irish. I am dark like my dad but my little sister is white as ghost with blond hair and blue eyes. We don't look related at all as our skin colours are totally different.

Just don't go joining any BNP or EDL demonstrations because you might get jumped yourself.
