Johnny was turned into his childhood crush and ultimate punk icon, Debbie Harry, with Maria recreating the Blondie singer’s famous pout and smoky eye make-up.

The look was created using the presenter’s face as a canvas and perfected over three hours. The make-up artist transformed Johnny into his chosen icon by building layers, contouring features and shading to recreate the facial structure and create the illusion of the musical icon.
