It’s the most wonderful time of year and no, we’re not talking about Christmas. We’re on about heat’s Stars Dress Up, which is always the highlight of the calendar year.

What better way to reflect on the past 12 months than to get some of our favourite famous faces to get their kit off and change into unflattering at best and, at times, humiliating costumes to recreate the most iconic pictures of the year gone by?

This year, we’ve managed to rope in TOWIE OG James 'Arg' Argent, daytime TV legend Lorraine Kelly and Love Island 2021 star Toby Aromolaran as David Beckham, Adele and Bukayo Saka respectively.

The pictures really have to been seen to be believed.

CHECK OUT James 'Arg' Argent as David Beckham, Lorraine Kelly as Adele and Toby Aromolaran as Bukayo Saka for heat's Stars Dress Up 2021

Chatting about his transformation into his footballing hero Becks, as he recreated the cheeky snap of David’s derriere posted by wife Victoria earlier this year, Arg told us, “Beckham is a hero of mine. I remember when I first started TOWIE, I said to myself, ‘I wonder if I could meet Beckham one day’. And I’ve actually met him a couple of times now – I even had a chat to him about pie and mash.

“I think it was years ago at The Sun military awards or maybe Pride of Britain. Yeah, you could tell he had an idea of who I was, he’d obviously seen an episode”

Discussing David’s extensive ink collection, Arg continued, “I haven’t got any tatts, but I’m thinking about getting one.

“I’d go for a more Tony Soprano-style tatt on my arm I think.”

heat's Stars Dress Up Behind The Scenes: Arg got the jitters

Despite the challenges presented by another strange year, we were chuffed to pull off our annual Stars Dress Up feature with a stellar line-up of game celebs happy to recreate the iconic images of the year.

Getting our kit off for a photoshoot is our idea of a nightmare, so props to Arg for overcoming his nerves and nailing it. Pre-shoot, Arg had a bit of a wobble because, even though has a lost a truly impressive 14st (he was 27st at his heaviest), he's not as body confident as he wants to be yet.

But with encouragement from our brilliant photographer Nicky, he soon warmed up, and was delighted with the results. Happy to help, Arg!
