Strike a pose: Funnyman Alan Carr dressed up for a second year in a row as he channelled body builder Jodie Marsh
The trendy get-up was seen on the Girls Aloud beauty as she launched her shoe collection in London in September.
But unlike Cheryl, Louis looked far from stunning as he grinned and stepped out in the same ensemble.
From a distance the 59-year-old carried off the look, even carrying a clutch bag and wearing earrings to make himself look even more feminine.
How they really look: The Girls Aloud beauty and former glamour model as they really look. Were you fooled!
But his cheeky grin was instantly recognisable as he played the prank for this week”s Heat magazine.
And he”s convinced Cheryl will love the transformation after telling her he was going to do it months ago.
He said: “I texted Cheryl months ago to say I was going to dress up asher, and she said, ‘Do it!’
“I think she’ll howl with laughter when she sees it. Simon(Cowell) will love it, too, because I think he secretly likes drag queens.”
And he wasn”t the only star to don a different look for the publication – funnyman Alan Carr channelled former glamour model Jodie Marsh as he was painted in full brown make-up.
The chat show queen showed off his physique as he posed as if he were the body builder.
