This Morning presenter Josie Gibson kept viewers guessing with her transformation for the show's Halloween special.

The stars of the ITV daytime show dressed up as The Addams Family to mark the spooky festival, with Alison Hammond as matriarch Morticia, Phillip Schofield as Uncle Fester and Holly Willoughby as daughter Wednesday.

But it was Gibson's appearance as dead pan butler Lurch that won over many viewers, with some struggling to recognise her under her make-up and wig, before her Bristol accent eventually slipped out.
