Peter Kay as Geraldine McQueen

We had previously provided work for Jill Sweeney (no relation to Jackie) when she was the make-up designer on The Royle Family.

The next challenge she had for us was to help her turn Peter Kay into a woman!

Jill and Peter had many discussions about the looks they wanted to go for so we did our fittings, ordered the hair and set about making 6 wigs for his character. We named each of them depending upon who was the inspiration for the style, such as Jennifer after Jennifer Aniston but not all of the wigs made it to the final show.

Peter’s favourite was a red bob with blonde streaks. This gave him the most confidence so it became the one most associated with the look of Geraldine McQueen.
