What a circus! The Only Way Is Essex stars Sam Faiers and Lydia Bright go for the sexy showgirl look in a Christmas cabaret inspired shoot for Look magazine
They have been their fair share of miniskirts and stiletto heels during their time on The Only Way Is Essex.
But Sam Faiers and Lydia Bright have tried out a sexy new look ahead of the festive season - donning sexy showgirl outfits for a Christmas cabaret inspired shoot.
The pretty blondes show off their figures in low-cut leotards emblazoned with the American flag as they pose up for the pictures in Look magazine.
You're a long way from Essex now! The pretty blondes were joined by fellow TOWIE stars James 'Arg' Argent and Joey Essex
Sam and Lydia are joined by TOWIE co-stars James 'Arg' Argent, who played the ringmaster, and Joey Essex, who wore a ruffled collar to play Pierrot the Clown.
The girls also said they thoroughly enjoyed donning the spangly outfits for the shoot, with Lydia saying: 'We love our hair and make-up. The whole 50's era is really cool.'
Talking about how they gear up for looking glamorous during the party season, Sam explained: 'I'll always put on a new dress, I love anything red and lots of faux fur. But we get dressed up all year round.'
Nice hat! Coronation Street's Michelle Keegan dons a sexy sparkly leotard as she balances on a trapeze for the shoot
That's what you call flexible! Former Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt does the splits for her shot
And Lydia added: 'We're always over the top and glamorous so every day is like Christmas to us!'
The TOWIE cast weren't the only famous faces who dressed up for the festive shoot, with Coronation Street's Michelle Keegan also going for a glamorous showgirl look in a sparkly tasselled leotard and little black hat.
But Michelle, 24, said she still has no idea what she's going to buy her Wanted fiancé Max George for Christmas.
Clowning around: Dionne Bromfield also appears in the shoot, with a frilly collar and face paint to make her look like Pierrot the Clown
She said: 'He's got everything! He hasn't got any hair, so I can't get him hair products. He only likes one aftershave so I can't buy him that, and he wears the clothes he gets given at shoots. I'm panicking!'
Michelle also revealed that despite getting engaged earlier this year, she and Max aren't planning on walking down the aisle any time soon.
She added: 'We've got to live together first, so we'll probably look for a house next year and then start planning a wedding the year after.'
The full interview appears in this week's Look magazine
While Michelle and TOWIE's Sam and Lydia possibly felt less than comfortable having to break out the sexy dance moves for the shoot, one person who appeared confident with her fancy footwork is former Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt.
The 29-year-old shows off her incredible flexibility as she does the splits in a tutu-style dress, and admitted she's looking forward to the new series of Got To Dance!
Talking about the upcoming show, Kimberly said: 'Aside from all the amazing new dancers, I've got a solo performance and all three judges might perform together as well!'
