The band McFly sported fun fancy dress this week in order to play a special gig at Heathrow Airport.

After turning on the Christmas lights at Terminal 5, the Star Girl hitmakers thrilled fans and those just passing through by singing some of their newest tracks, as well as old favourites, at the hub.

However, they caused extra attention thanks to the fact that three of them came as pilots, with Dougie Poynter bravely donning an air stewardess fancy dress costume.

"We've performed in some weird and wonderful locations before, but Heathrow was really special," they commented afterwards.

This comes in the same week that it was revealed that Richard Branson will don trolley dolly fancy dress after losing a bet over the recent Formula 1 championships.

He is going to have to serve drinks on an AirAsia flight - perhaps he could compare costume tips with Dougie in order to get it right?
