Buff up the topper and don a glamorous outfit for Royal Ascot with the help of stylist extraordinaire Gok Wan.

The Fashion Fix guru will be gracing the TV making an appearance as Channel 4 Racing’s new fashion correspondent during this year’s coverage.

Gok will be dishing out style dos and don’ts, spotting any fashion faux pas, plus keeping a watchful eye on what the celebrities are wearing throughout the five-day meeting.

“With all its glamour, drama and royalty, there is nothing quite like Royal Ascot. I’m delighted to be joining Channel 4 Racing for this incredibly special event,” said Gok.

His top survival tips? “Take flat shoes just in case, wear the right underwear, be comfortable — don’t be tied up like a turkey ready for basting, smile and be daring!”

Royal Ascot is live on Channel 4 from 17-21 June
