Wore what? Jumper, (POA), Harp Lagerfield; skirt, £35, Zara; boots, £69, Topshop.

Why? I’m normally in my PJs for the Cool FM breakfast show, so I thought I’d make a bit of an effort (for once) in this fetching festive jumper. This is my favourite attire of the season. All the NI fashionistas want to get their hands on this limited edition, so I feel blessed the designer sent me this one. Harp Lagerfield and I are close personal friends, don’t you know.

Who? May McFettridge, always fabulous.
