RTE star Ryan Tubridy is always up for a challenge, especially when it helps a charity.

The popular broadcaster (41) let his two daughters Ella (15) and Julia (nine) dress him yesterday as part of the state broadcaster's #DressedByAChild campaign, to raise funds for LauraLynn, Ireland's Children's Hospice.

And his creative daughters clearly didn't hold back when they got their hands on their dad's wardrobe as they dressed him in a long black wig, a tie with a Gonzo (from The Muppets) wrap and Hawaiian lei to complement his powder blue trouser, pink shirt combination.

Tubridy was nominated by his new colleague Ray D'Arcy, who is letting his eight-year-old daughter Kate dress him for an entire week, which he will document on the airwaves and social media.

"To show your support, allow a child complete control of your wardrobe - it could be your son, daughter, niece, nephew or neighbour who can transform you as they wish. Share the photo on social media, nominate friends and family and donate €4 by texting LAURALYNN to 50300," the RTE 2FM Facebook page asks of fans.

Celebrity chef Neven Maguire has already joined in the challenge, proudly posing with his two children as he wore his chef's jacket, a pair of black board shorts and fleece hat.
