It comes after Movie Week, where all the celebrities embraced their stardom and danced in inspiration to Hollywood’s greatest hits.

Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu swung to Spiderman, Adam Peaty and Katya Jones went blue for Avatar, and Greg Wise and Karen Hauer looked suave as 007.

“Unfortunately this has been causing me some unwanted problems this week!”
