Celebs pull out all the stops for Keith Lemon's fancy dress 50th birthday bash

There is absolutely no denying that the celebs went all out for Leigh Francis’s 50th birthday party.

Tasked with arriving in fancy dress, the stars did not disappoint, as the likes of Phillip Schofield, Laura Whitmore, Holly Willoughby, and more were practically unrecognisable in their costumes.

Better known by his stage name, Keith Lemon, the Celebrity Juice host put together a star-studded guest list for his big 5-0 birthday bash at White City House, with a theme of movie characters.

This Morning presenter Phillip looked worlds away from his usual self as he sported a burgundy suit.

Dressed as Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy (played in the movie by Will Ferrell) he definitely looked the part with a fake moustache, brown wig, and microphone in hand.

Phil, 61, was also accompanied by wife Stephanie Lowe and their two daughters, with Stephanie as Private Benjamin and Ruby and Molly as the Men in Black.

Meanwhile, comedian Emily got dolled up in a plunging corset dress to channel the one and only Marilyn Monroe.

The Inbetweeners star, 33, looked stunning in the glam ensemble, which included a faux fur shrug over her shoulders, a platinum blonde wig, pearl earrings and, of course, the classic red lipstick.

As for ITV’s Holly, she gave Margot Robbie a run for her money by dressing as Barbie ahead of the movie’s release this summer.

With her blonde locks styled in loose waves, a white cowboy hat on her head, and a red scarf around her neck, the presenter had the accessories down to a tee.

As for her outfit, she was every inch the Barbie girl in a pink jumpsuit, which seemed almost a direct copy of the one worn by Margot in the highly-anticipated film.

Holly was joined by her husband Dan, who dug deep to unleash his Ken-ergy in a Ryan Gosling Western-style ensemble.

Elsewhere, Myleene Klass looked sensational dressed as Mozart with partner Simon Motson dressed as a piano in what appears to have been a nod to Amadeus.

The I’m A Celebrity star, 45, looked straight out of the 1700s in her white wig and tights, while Simon truly took one for the team by dressing as her instrument.

Honestly, couple goals or what?

Also in attendance were Fearne Cotton and her husband Jesse Wood, with the radio broadcaster looking chic in an olive pencil skirt, as they brought Bonnie and Clyde to the bash.

Emma Bunton also rocked a shirt dress as she arrived arm-in-arm with husband Jade Jones as the couple

Other stars who delved into their fancy dress boxes included Kimberley Walsh and her other half Justin Scott.

Complementing one another perfectly, Kimberely dressed as Penélope Cruz’s Angelica from Pirates of the Caribbean, while Justin channeled Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow.

They went all the way with the black eyeliner, pirate hats, knee-high boots, and belts, looking fresh off a pirate ship and ready to say, ‘Shiver me timbers!’

Former Love Island host Laura Whitmore and voice-over star Iain Stirling brought the fun as they replicated True Romance with their outfits.

Sporting a patterned mini skirt with an off-the-shoulder top, Laura was the spitting image of Alabama Whitman, also wearing a blonde wig and large sunnies.

Meanwhile, husband Iain was Clarence Worley’s double in a funky Hawaiian shirt and baggy blue jeans.

And the night wouldn’t be complete without one scary costume, right?

Well, thanks to Johnny Vegas, everyone got a real fright.

The northern comic looked like he’d stumbled out of a horror as he dressed as Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist.

You’d be forgiven for not being able to recognise him under his outfit, as his make-up was incredibly realistic.

Wearing a brunette wig and blue dress smeared in fake blood, the stand-up star was truly terrifying, having also painted the inside of his mouth black for the full effect.

We can only hope to have friends put in as much effort for all our future parties from now on!
