We LOVE Halloween here at heat, and if we were celebrities, we'd 100 per cent go full out every single year. Hire a glam squad, get the best costume there is and work our way through the crowds of paparazzi that call our name to get the best shot.

And for actual celebrities, this happens - A-listers take the annual October event very seriously. Heidi Klum, particularly, takes 31 October deadly (see what we did there 🤣) seriously. She's quite literally turns herself into somebody else (have you seen her Fiona-from-Shrek costume?) and we are SO here for it.

Yep, it's great for us, as their extravagant costumes give us some inspiration for our own looks, meaning our pals probably wouldn't disown us (like last year), if we rocked up to the club with yet another ripped white t-shirt with fake blood from the local shop splattered all over it...

We can finally get out trick-or-treating again after the ‘rona put a bit of a downer on All Hallow's Eve 2020, so we need to be on our A game when it comes to costumes this year. Or, even if you’re staying at home Hocus Pocus with hot choccy and festive Halloween-y snacks, that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up for a spooktastic movie fest.

Plus, even if you don't fancy transforming yourself into the scariest of creatures (or, yaknow, the Spice Girls, whatever floats your boat), why not live vicariously through Halloweens of years gone by? Lucky for you, we've compiled a list of the very best celeb costumes for you to feast your eyes upon.

So, get your popcorn and get cosy because you're in for a trick or TREAT (tumbleweed...).

This isn't the first time David Walliams has dressed up as a political leader, donning a Donald Trump outfit for Jonathan Ross' annual Halloween party in 2017. But we love this look. Simple, all black and definitely cheap. Bargain.

If you watch This Morning, you'll know Holly Willoughby is the biggest fan of unicorns... like ever. She's clearly living her childhood dreams. But we've got one question, how much did this outfit cost? It looks expensive.

Don't lie, we've all got a hideous fur jacket stuck at the back of our wardrobes. Why not take a leaf out of Ed's book and use it to dress up as a pimp!

If you're wanting to keep it stripped back, plain, but effective, Stacey Solomon's mermaid outfit would do the job. Her black crop top and mermaid tail is just perfection. Joe Swash's outfit on the other hand... Let's just say it's very fitting with the theme.

There's only one word to describe this outfit - WOW. Alan Carr dressing up as Gemma Collins, aka the meme queen, is iconic on so many levels and would certainly turn heads. And even better, your bestie could dress up as Bobby Norris!

If you're wanting to look like a golden goddess, then take note from The X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger and dress up as Cleopatra. The jewels and the diamonds - it's a look.

Comedian and actress Aisling Bea did not disappoint with this look, dressing up as June from The Handmaids Tale. We have no idea what the plant has got to do with the look but we'll just go with it.

He's a comedy genius so obviously he had to dress us as a character with his own name in it! Frank is giving us all the ghoulish vibes - we definitely need his MUA's number!

Joan Collins, a Hollywood superstar, dressing us as Madame du Barry - a victim of the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. Maybe not an outfit for a club vibe.

Keith's fancy dress included prostethics, which took this costume to next level Halloween. Dressing up as David from The Lost Boys, he looks very much like the character and it's weird to even think it's the Leeds-born comedian under that outfit - it's SO convincing.

Michael McIntyre has gone for the classic blood on white shirt look. Easy, simple and cheap. Is it a little bit basic though? Sorry Michael...

Scarlett Moffatt looks amazing in this Mexican Day of the Dead outfit. The outfit is on point and isn't too much of look that anyone could recreate. As for her friends Joker outfit - amazing. They both had a very good make-up artist this night.

Love Island's Laura must have spent hours in the make-up chair for this look but it certainly paid off. She looks insane with all those jewels on her face. Why do we keep singing Peacock by Katy Perry in our heads when we look at this picture?

Anne Marie looks so much like Billie Eilish in his outfit we had to double take! She looks so cool, from the long, neon green talons to the iconic foot boot. This is a look we think lots of people could recreate.

We're getting mysterious vibes mixed with Nessa from Gavin and Stacey vibes from Love Island Lucie's fancy dress costume. She looks awesome - 10/10.

Like Derren Brown's outfit, we're not exactly sure what look Stormzy is going for but it looks powerful and would be cheap to recreate.

Kady's outfit is perfect for the club. It gives you the flexibility to show off your range of dance moves and the tutu means people won't come as close to you, leaving you more room to dance. Simple.

Ella May is rocking the pumpkin inspired outfit. The green wig is fitting and the fur orange jacket keeps you warm. Winning.

Of course Jax Jones dressed up as a Louis Vuitton mummy. What else would he dress up as? He's a DJ at the end of the day.

Similar to Lucie Donlan, Georgia Aurelia Elliott is also channelling Mystic Meg vibes with a stripped back look. The face jewels make the outfit. Goals.

Rita Ora's homage to fellow singer Post Malone, complete with a cigarette and bottle of beer, is absolutely GENIUS. In fact, her resemblance to the real deal was so uncanny that one publication actually used a photo of Rita in an article about Post. Oops...

We've lost count of how many Tiger King themed Halloween costumes we saw last October, but one thing we do know is that there are few who pulled it off as well as Kim K and her bestie Jonathan. Plus, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm are ADORABLE as tigers.

We were totally gobsmacked when we realised it was none other than The Weeknd underneath this The Nutty Professor costume. He looks totally unrecognisable...

Who here among us hasn't donned a pair of cat ears, a black top and a makeshift tail to go trick or treating? But Vanessa Hudgens' PVC Catwoman bodysuit takes the look to a whole 'nother level.

We're not quite sure how's pulled it off but Halsey manages to look both scary and drop dead gorgeous (pun intended) at the same time as Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. Her face paint is to die for (okay, we'll stop now).

Halloween is a huge event for the showbiz world, especially for Jonathan Ross, who decorates his £2.5 million London house with spectacular decorations and invites nearly every single UK celebrity on our screens.

However, he insists this is the only showbiz event he likes to host, telling Loose Women, "The main reason I do the Halloween party is because my kids love it.

"It started as a thing for my kids when they were little and it grew and became slightly more grown up when they became grown ups.

"I don't really mind who comes because my kids have 20 to 30 people they invite each and that's the party and other people [who turn up] are people who come up to me and say 'Please can I come to your party?'"

Well...we're sorry Rossy, it doesn't look like your annual shindig will be going ahead this year, but at least you can still put up your spooky decs 🤷‍♀️.

Plus, there's plenty of cosy night-in activities to make the most of this October 31st. Just crack out those autumn candles we told you about, chuck on the Strictly Halloween special and get ready, for your snuggliest Halloween YET.
