And Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield didn’t disappoint as they transformed into characters from the famous musical on Thursday morning.

The TV presenter, 38, bared a striking likeness to the main character, Dorothy Gale, as she donned a pretty blue plaid pinafore dress over a white puff sleeve blouse.

She teamed her costume with a pair of Dorothy’s famous sparkling red heels, which she paired with some blue ankle socks as she skipped around the studio set.

Holly, who has previously sported brunette locks despite being known for her blonde tresses, returned to her old look by donning a plaited brunette wig.

The Celebrity Juice panellist added to her look with dainty blue bow tied at the end of each plait, while opting for a rosy pallet of make-up.

The 1900 children’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which has been adapted into several movies and theatre productions, follows the story of Dorothy and her dog Toto, who are forced to relocate to the magical land of Oz following a tornado.

The pair meet a Scarecrow, a Tin Man and a Cowardly Lion enroute to Emerald City to meet the Wizard, who orders the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West. 

Earlier this month, This Morning Editor Martin Frizell said: ‘The Wizard of Oz is one of Hollywood’s oldest, most famous and much loved stories. 

‘And with the 1939 Judy Garland film celebrating its 80th birthday this year, our This Morning Halloween show is set to be the best reimagining yet.’
