It’s hoped the transformations will help those wanting to impress – after a poll of 2,000 adults who celebrate Halloween found 39 per cent feel pressure to wow others with their costumes.

Gok, who has teamed up with confectionery brand M&Ms for the makeovers, said: 

“Dressing up for Halloween involves money, time and effort but with over a third of people saying Halloween is their favourite time of the year, I want to help people get trick or treat ready, looking fabulous and primed for the next Instagram snap, whatever their budget and time constraints.”

Of those planning to dress up this year, 42 per cent claim they’ll ‘go all out’ with their choice of costume.

And 45 per cent admit their motivation for going that extra mile is to go down a storm with followers on social media.

For those looking to succeed in this respect, the costumes which create the biggest wow factor tend to include amazing make-up (14 per cent) and are homemade (13 per cent).

However, 79 per cent of costume wearers admit they could do with some help when it comes to blowing away the competition.

While 29 per cent wish they had someone to do ‘incredible’ make up for them, and 21 per cent would like some assistance in finding the perfect costume.

It also emerged those polled consider dressing up as a witch (17 per cent) to be the most iconic Halloween costume of all-time – followed by a ghost (15 per cent) and a zombie (14 per cent).

Carried out through OnePoll, the study also found while fancy dress plays a crucial part for many, 32 per cent consider the treats to be one of the best things about Halloween.

Leah Dyckes, M&M’s brand director, said: “Celebrating Halloween is getting bigger and bigger and with that comes the demand to step up the costume game.

“Whether it’s finding the perfect trick or treating outfit to smashing the party fancy dress we’re delighted to have Gok Wan as our spooktacular stylist to inspire confidence and help people get in the Halloween spirit.”

Gok Wan will be at Leicester Square M&M’s World store on October 31 from 3pm until 7pm, alongside a team of make-up artists, to provide free Halloween makeovers – click here to book.
