factual ent: The Daily Mail race swap

The Daily Mail race swap

Former-Blue Peter presenters Janet Ellis & Diane-Louise Jordan traded races for a day in 2004 as the Daily Mail investigated attitudes to racism: both found that prejudice still exists.

The makeup

Steve Painter was responsible for the makeups. Both Janet and Diane-Louise were fitted with prosthetics to change the shape of their noses and lips as well as wearing wigs and having their skin tones changed. Diane-Louise, but apparently not Janet, also wore contact lens to change her eye colour.
