Tess Daly proves she is the cream of the crop in an edible dress made from cereal.

The Strictly Come Dancing presenter teamed up with designer Petra Storrs - who has dressed stars including Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Florence Welch - to create the fruity frock from wheat, red apples and vanilla pods with almonds, flowers and blossoms.

The gown was created to celebrate the launch of Daly's very own Special K recipe in her role as celebrity ambassador for the brand.

She said: "I was amazed at the result Petra achieved - I never dreamed she'd create something so uniquely beautiful. To have been allowed a hand in the design process was a great experience - I love fashion, and I love food - what a perfect combination of the two!"

The design includes 4,000 stalks of braided wheat which make up the shoulders, bodice and skirt, 500 whole almonds which have been hand-sewn together for the bodice and a f ishtail train made from 450 whole red apples.

Storrs said: "I've created some weird and wonderful things in my time but to make a dress 100% out of the ingredients of a cereal recipe was a huge challenge and involved a lot of hard work. Thankfully Tess and I shared a vision of what we wanted to achieve and it was great working with her to achieve this stunning result."
