Global presenters dress as ‘loud icons’ for Make Some Noise 2016

Global presenters dress as 'loud icons' for Make Some Noise 2016

Stars from Heart, Capital, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X and LBC dressed as icons known for their love of dressing loud or being loud, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Freddie Mercury, Blondie, Jim Morrison and Boris Johnson.

And the results? Well, they’re just brilliant!

Capital London breakfast trio Dave Berry, George Shelley and Lilah Parsons dazzled as Mark Ronson, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.  Dave Berry even borrowed Mark Ronson’s iconic leopard print jacket, while Olly Alexander from Years & Years lent his eye-catching birds of paradise cape, which he sported on stage at Glastonbury this summer, to Capital evening presenter Roman Kemp. How cool is that?!

Heart’s Jamie Theakston donned the legendary yellow military jacket and white trousers with red and gold piping to reproduce the ultimate Freddie Mercury look from his final performance with Queen in 1986 at Knebworth.




Smooth presenter Kate Garraway recreated the sultry look from Blondie’s most famous album cover ‘Parallel Lines’ in a white dress and dip-dyed blonde wig.






Radio X’s Vernon Kay donned his leather trousers for his transformation to The Doors superstar and one of music’s most controversial stars, Jim Morrison, while fellow Radio X presenter Johnny Vaughan dressed as ‘Firestarter’ and music maverick Keith Flint from The Prodigy.




Classic FM’s Aled Jones looked imperious in his eighteenth century costume as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, known for his diva-like behaviour and outbursts.




LBC presenter Katie Hopkins dressed as one of Britain’s most outspoken political figures and undoubtedly a loud icon, Boris Johnson.
