Broadcaster Lucy Kennedy is the latest famous face to bravely allow her children to dress her - all in the name of a good cause.

The 38-year-old tv presenter has joined the likes of Ray D’Arcy and Ryan Tubridy by taking part in the #DressedByAChild campaign.

The mum-of-two accepted the challenge and allowed her daughter Holly and son Jackto style her in a pink wig, 'Nerds Rule' Hello Kitty tshirt, black pencil skirt and burgundy high heels.

Radio host Ray D'Arcy was inspired to start the #DressedByAChild charity campaign after American woman Summer Bellessa hit headlines around the world when she agreed to let her toddler style and dress her.

The 53-year-old allowed his daughter Kate (8) to pick out his outfits over the course of a week, prompting some raised eyebrows around the RTE studios.

RTE 2FM host Ryan Tubridy (41) also let his two daughters Ella (15) and Julia (9) dress him as part of the state broadcaster's #DressedByAChild campaign, to raise funds for LauraLynn, Ireland's Children's Hospice.
