FANS may have thought they spotted Elton John heading into Leicester Sqaure this morning.
But not all was as it seemed – as it turned out to be a breakfast show host dressing up as the singing sensation as part of Global’s Make Some Noise day.
GMB host Kate Garraway swapped her usual frock for a white jumpsuit and feathered blazer as she headed to London’s Leicester Square.
Dressing up as part of the charity fundraiser, Kate, 54, chanelled Elton in pearl necklaces and an impressive pair of glitter-covered boots.
Kate showed off the look to her Instagram followers before heading out in public to show off her new look, in tribute to Elton.
“I am dressed as somebody very special, someone very dear to me,” the television presenter told her one million social media followers.
Parading up and down in the outfit in a hilarious video, she added in the caption: “Who do you think I am? Go on, give it a guess!”
It came as Kate got stuck in to help raise money for Global’s Make Some Noise, which supports small charities across the UK.
The group raises money to support disadvantaged people through food banks, mental health and domestic abuse helplines, carer support, community projects and employment programmes.
Last month, Kate was savagely trolled by her co-presenter Ben Shephard and the GMB team over a very eye-catching outfit.
Entertainment editor Richard Arnold couldn’t resist poking a bit of fun at his co-star’s flamboyant Friday look.
Apologising to host Pip Thompson for getting distracted, he said: “Sorry, I’ve just been rather thrown by Kate popping into the studio. She looks like a bag of Chewits.”
He chuckled as he walked away, while surprised Pip said: “He is so rude. Let’s get Alex with the weather now, who’s much less rude.”
Kate, who wore purple trousers and a swirling blouse, took it in her stride and said she was trying to bring some cheer amid the HGV driver shortage and petrol station closures.
She even joked it was a ’70s throwback to the winter of discontent – widespread strikes that threatened to bring the country to a standstill in 1978.
Richard’s mischief making didn’t stop there, he also compared Jacqui Smith’s orange outfit to a pumpkin.
