My Life in Clothes: CBBC presenters Dick and Dom

THE childrens’ TV duo share their fashion favourites.

What’s the last piece of clothing you bought? Dom: A very tight jacket, as I still kid myself that I can fit into the kind of clothes that I wore when I was 21. Dick: A jumper, as we are about to film outdoors for our CBBC series Absolute Genius.

Best ever bargain? Dom: My CAT boots. They last and last. Dick: A leather jacket that has, so far, done me five years.

What are you addicted to buying? Dom: Dermalogica products, so I don’t get a saggy face. Dick: Dog food.

Any fashion disasters you’d care to tell us about? Dom: I used to love tartan trousers in the Nineties. I was trying to look like Chris Evans. Dick: Anything I wore in the early Nineties.

What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe? Dom: Moth balls. Dick: I like my suit, but I don’t get the chance to wear it very often.
