Six sensational women from the hit dating series My Mum, Your Dad oozed confidence as they received a full glam makeover courtesy of fashion brand JD Williams.
After catching up the night before with a few bottles of wine or so, stars of the show Janey, Caroline, Tolullah, Sharon, Monique and Natalie excitedly arrived at the studio for a day of pampering and partywear, with OK! there to join them. Joining them on the day was co-star Roger who accompanied Janey and proved he's very much the doting partner.
Clothing rails were filled with the new JD Williams collection, from cosy jumpers and leather-look leggings for daywear looks to blazers, sequin dresses and satin suits for evening wear. Described as "versatile" with "something for everyone" by Sharon, the women donned a series of ensembles from the collection which is "tailored for all different shapes and sizes".
The women of My Mum, Your Dad showed off their sensational styles as they beamed confidently in front of cameras." Excitement buzzed around the studio as partywear was captured ahead of the upcoming festivities, complete with glitter cannonballs and champagne bubbles.
The makeover finished with the women coming together for the ultimate girls' night in with a sea of velvet pyjamas and printed patterns. When chatting with the stars of the show in between shoots, sharing rooms during their time at the retreat on My Mum, Your Dad appeared to be a particular highlight.
"We were told when to go to bed and reverted back to being teenagers", shared Natalie. Before adding: "Me and Sharon would be in fits of laughter, we had deep talks and tears."
While Caroline admitted that she and Janey would be in their room "lying in bed and talking like kids". Tolullah later joined their room and Caroline confessed: "I think we used to drive Tolullah insane because Janey and I are a bit messy, we would just live out of our suitcases and clothes were everywhere."

Talking about the collection, Janey said: "It is versatile and I think it's great for my age, it seems very appropriate and I like the variety of it as well. I quite like bohemian and quite rocky, edgy stuff, I'm definitely that way so I was delighted to see there was quite a lot of that influence in there as well.

Luckily for Caroline, the JD Williams collection offered a pair of "really comfy" jeans that "fitted lovely" along with a complete glam squad. Completing the day look Caroline wore a long cable knit grey jumper which she described as "brilliant for the winter, especially in Scotland".

Describing the collection Sharon said: "It’s very versatile, suited for all trends, all different shapes and sizes and it’s very adaptable. You can dress items up or down and it tailors for all fashion tastes.
"When you get to a certain age it doesn’t mean you need to start wearing ankle-length skirts, the collection has something for everyone".
Swapping a stay at Elliot's Essex pad for a photo shoot in London, Sharon said her favourite outfit of the day was a short leather skirt, suede boots, black blazer and white shirt from JD Williams. "I felt really confident in it and would wear it out for a date with Elliott or a girls' night out for cocktails".

Despite not finding love on My Mum, Your Dad, Monique said she came out "with the best of friends" and it was a "once in a lifetime positive experience". The 50 year old described her usual style as "quite young and trendy", before adding "I often wonder if I should be wearing certain items, but I don't want to dress before my time, I like it to look very current".
A staple in Monique's wardrobe is a pair of leather look jeggings because you can "dress them up or dress them down" and she believes every woman should own some.
Talking about the collection she said: "There’s something for everybody, it’s current and trendy, makes you feel young. I felt confident, sexy and stylish wearing the outfits".
"There are lots of really adaptable pieces". Monique added that her favourite outfit of the day was her diamonte trousers because they were "really glam but comfortable".
