The Great British Bake Off host Matt portrayed singer Adele with an exaggerated cockney accent, while Walliams dressed in outlandish outfits to mimic Lady Gaga.

American rapper Post Malone was also ridiculed as the duo depicted him as Vernon Kay fan.

Matt also donned skimpy braces to play Miley Cyrus, who Walliams appeared to accost as his daughter, while in the character Billie Ray Cyrus.
