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 Love Island 2021 star Toby Aromolaran, daytime TV legend Lorraine Kelly and TOWIE OG James ‘Arg’ Argent as Bukayo Saka Adele and David Beckham respectively.

The pictures really have to been seen to be believed.

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

Chatting to heat about his transformation into England’s Euros star Bukayo, Toby – who was a semi-pro footballer before entering the Love Island villa – told us, “I like Saka as a player, I like what he’s doing.

“Missing the Euros while I was in Love Island was crazy! You knew they were partying back home because of the vibe of the World Cup.

“And I’m not going to lie to you, and people might hate me for it, but I’m kinda happy we didn’t win! It’s so bad, but I’m kinda happy because now I’ll be at home when we do! So I can experience it in full.”

He added, “Do I have a message for Gareth Southgate? Yeah, Gareth, I’ve already been on the blower to you in the Love Island villa. You need to call me up because I’m here and I’m available for selection…”

heat's Stars Dress Up Behind The Scenes: Toby was pumped

Office consensus: Toby is a really sweet guy. He came to the shoot pumped to be Bukayo Saka... literally! He dropped to the floor to do some last-minute press-ups to make sure his muscles were bulging for the shot. Photographer Marco bravely took him on in a press-up challenge (FYI, Toby won).

He told us he was looking forward to Christmas and revealed what he was buying for girlfriend Chlow - we won't ruin the surprise, but get excited, Chlo. He then accepted heatworld's challenge and managed to do 56 keepy uppies while answering our questions. Who knew the Tobemeister was so good at multi-tasking?
