As Breast Cancer Awareness Month kicks off, five famous faces have pledged their support by being transformed into pretty pink princesses.
Kara Tointon, Brooke Vincent and Jo Wood were among those transported to a magical land and given a fairytale makeover for Asda's Tickled Pink Campaign. The movement raises awareness and vital funds for two charities: Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now.
For 2015, the iconic pink ribbon t-shirts have been redesigned in an on-trend grey marl and long-sleeved black version for the cooler months. They retail at £6 with £1 going straight to charity.
Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent, 23, said she 'absolutely loved' taking part in the Tickled Pink fairytale shoot

After donning a gorgeous gown for the girly shoot, former Strictly Come Dancing star Kara Tointon said: 'This is my second year supporting Asda’s Tickled Pink campaign and I am thrilled to be returning.'
The 32-year-old added: 'Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now are both incredibly inspiring charities that help those who are affected by breast cancer and their families.
'With the amazing pink merchandise and t-shirts at Asda, there are so many products for us all to show our support this October.'
Meanwhile, Coronation Street actress Brooke Vincent, 23, said: 'I have absolutely loved taking part in this year’s fairytale themed Tickled Pink shoot and really hope it encouraged you all to get involved and raise money for both Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now, who provide vital support to those diagnosed and fund innovative research.'
TV personality Jo Wood, 60, said the campaign is a 'fantastic initiative' and she is 'thrilled' to be a part of it

TV personality Jo Wood, 60, called the campaign a 'fantastic initiative' and said she was 'thrilled' to be a part of it.
Asda founded Tickled Pink in 1996 with the aim of raising awareness and funding treatment of breast cancer in the UK.
The charity has also financed world-class research to help improve treatments, diagnosis and hopefully one day, a cure. It has raised £44 million to date.
Other stars taking part in the fantasy shoot included singer Heidi Range, 32, and Sky Sports New host Charlotte Jackson, 37.
'Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now make a huge difference to those affected by breast cancer every day, so I would really encourage people to take some time this Breast Cancer Awareness month to recognise and support the vital work they do,' said Heidi.
For 2015, the iconic pink ribbon t-shirts have been redesigned in an on-trend grey marl and long-sleeved black version, which is perfect for the cooler months
While Charlotte added: 'This is my first Tickled Pink campaign and I am so honoured to be taking part.
'Both Breast Cancer Now and Breast Cancer Care are incredibly important and make a huge difference to lives of women all over the UK.
'By buying a t-shirt, you’re not only helping to spread the message but also donating to what is an amazing cause. So come on girls, grab a tee like me and we can wear these with pride!”
Tickled Pink supporter and global fashion designer Julien Macdonald dressed two of the stars - Kara Tointon and Charlotte Jackson - in designs from his glamorous collection, with the embellished details bringing the fairytale shots into the modern day.
