Sandy from Grease, Wonder Woman and... Liam Gallagher? Tess Daly, Rochelle Humes and Nick Grimshaw lead the way as stars dress up as their childhood heroes for Children In Need launch
Each of them is a hero in their own right, to the different generations they have influenced in their careers.
But the presenters of this year's Children In Need show have dressed up as their own childhood icons ahead of the big fundraising night on BBC1 on Friday 13 November.
Leading the pack of hosts in their rather impressive guises as part of the charity's latest fundraising drive were Tess Daly and Rochelle Humes.

Tess, who has presented the popular programme since 2008, wowed as she dressed up as Sandy from Grease.
Clad in skintight black leggings and an off-the-shoulder top, the 46-year-old Strictly Come Dancing presenter looked the spitting image of the musical icon, played by Olivia Newton-John in the 1978 movie.
Her blonde locks were coiffed into curls and, to complete the famous character's look, she donned a pair of towering red heels and slung a black jacket casually over her shoulder.

Giving her a run for her fancy dress money, though, was her co-host Rochelle, who clearly idolised superhero Wonder Woman.
The 26-year-old presenter and Saturdays singer completely nailed the look, in blue and red with an American-insired cape and, of course, the knee-high boots and the shining tiara... and a Pudsey bear belt chain.
Doppelganger: Tess certainly pulled off the Sandy from Grease look well, looking just like Olivia Newton John (left) in the original 1978 musical movie
The beauty explained of her choice: 'She was definitely the original female superhero.'
Mixing it up a bit was Nick Grimshaw, dressed as Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher.
The X Factor judge, 31, not only had his costume on point as the Manchester-born musician, but also his poise, pulling a suitably nonchalant impression and standing with Brit Pop coolness.
'As a child, the first band that I well and truly loved was Oasis,' he explained. 'I feel more Mancunian than ever.'
'She was the original female superhero': Clad in Wonder Woman's red, blue and gold outfit - complete with cape and tiara - Rochelle admitted she felt 'powerful'
Sir Terry Wogan, Children In Need's prestigious emcee for over 30 years, opted for 'singing cowboy' legend Gene Autry.
And his was a pretty spot-on costume, too, with the 77-year-old donning a burgundy and plaid shirt with jeans, fetching cowboy boots and a stetson, and a guitar as an accessory.
'Gene Autry was the only star I ever wrote to; he sent me a signed photograph, all the way from Hollywood,' Sir Terry confessed.
Alright? Nick Grimshaw revealed the first band he ever truly loved as a child was Oasis, and so certainly had to dress up as Liam Gallagher (left) and made for a surprisingly good double
This year, Children In Need is asking supporters of the charity to dress up as their childhood hero in order to raise money for good causes.
Singer Sophie Ellis Bextor is joining the presenting team this year, and made for a believable Mary Poppins.
The 36-year-old Murder On The Dancefloor hitmaker looked the spitting image of Julie Andrews' famous nanny from the 1964 Disney musical movie, the long coat, skirt and floral hat completing the look.

'I just want to speak like her and say things like 'spit-spot' and 'spoonful of sugar' and 'supercalifrigalisticexpialidocious'…' she joked.
Dermot O'Leary, 42, went not for a movie character or music star, rather opting for polar explorer Ernest Shackleton.
The former X Factor presenter said of his childhood hero: 'If you read about him, he's by far and away one of the bravest men you could ever imagine to meet.'
And he was pretty convincing, too, being made up to look covered in frost, clad in a fluffy hooded polar jacket and heavy boots.
'He was the only star I ever wrote to': The 'singing cowboy' has a special place in Terry's heart
Supercalifrigalisticexpialidocious! Sophie Ellis Bextor could have passed for Julie Andrews as the wonderful nanny Mary Poppins in her costume
What a transformation! The singer certainly resembled the movie nanny with her floral hat, scarf and dark coat
Rounding off the group of star-studded stars was Fearne Cotton, who looked gorgeous dressed as Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry.
The 34-year-old radio and TV star - who welcomed her second child, a daugher called Honey Krissy, on Wednesday - was the perfect doppelganger for the music and fashion luminary.
With her blonde locks coiffed into a retro style, and with dramatic red eye make-up, she could have passed for Harry in her younger years without fail.
'Debbie Harry's music and Blondie in general has definitely set the tone for a lot of my musical tastes over the years,' she explained.
Feeling chilly? Dermot O'Leary explained his love for legendary polar explorder Ernest Shackleton, and dressed up in a furry hooded coat, heavy boots... and snow
'He was the bravest man': The former X Factor presenter looked up to the explorer from a young age
'I love that she's still doing it, she still looks incredible, she's still setting the trends.'
In 2014, the annual telethon - a TV mainstay since the huge televised event began in 1980 - raised an impressive £32.6m on the night, and £49.1m in total for the year.
The line-up of presenters will get together once again on Friday 13 November for the live broadcast, which will be filled with the typical segments, including musical performances, comedy skits and much more.
