Jo Whiley, is that really you? DJ rocks London Fashion Week

If you think you know Jo Whiley, then prepare to be amazed.

The BBC Radio 2 DJ was so unrecognisable in a cameo appearance at London Fashion Week on Monday that we had to do a double take to make sure our eyes weren’t deceiving us.

Jo, 51, was rocking a huge, bird’s nest platinum wig, with an artist’s palette and paintbrushes tucked into its fluffy clouds.

She was one of the models cast in the Vin and Omi spring/summer 2017 show at The Congress Centre and wore a black dress from the collection with a large, ruffled silver neckline, as well as high platform shoes.

Earlier in the day, Jo tweeted about her pre-show nerves.

She also joked that the look reminded her of her style during the 80s.

The designers also chose another familiar face for their catwalk – Nicola “Baby Face” Adams, the Olympic-gold-winning boxer, showed off a fitted white suit covered in photos of Muhammad Ali.

She shared a video about her day as a model with her fans.
