A grandfather feels like a new man after winning a makeover with style guru Jeff Banks.

Brian Holmes was transformed by the fashion designer at his Freeport store after his wife Sue entered a competition in the Braintree and Witham Times to win him a £250 new look.

Mrs Holmes’ winning entry stood out because it was in the form of a poem.

Following his makeover, Mr Holmes, 61, said: “I had a really good time.
“We’re going to my niece’s wedding in July, so he said ‘I think you need a suit’.
“I got a suit, a tie, a belt, a pair of cufflinks and a silk hankerchief for my pocket."
