Rylan Clark has unveiled a series of new looks as he recreates some of the most iconic celebrity selfies of all time.


The self-confessed ‘selfie king’, who snaps more than 100 every week, was challenged to sprinkle some magic on famous celebrity selfies, including pop star Justin Bieber, model Kendall Jenner, Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi and footballer, Lionel Messi.


The TV presenter took on the selfie recreation challenge to mark the launch of Samsung’s new national competition, offering the public a chance to win £500,000 just by walking into any Samsung store or participating retailer across the country and taking a selfie on the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5[2].


First up in the series of recreated looks, the TV star was asked to reimagine Kendall Jenner’s iconic heart hair selfie, that took the world by storm and became Instagram’s most liked image of 2015 – gaining her over three million likes since first posted.


Rylan donned an elegant lace wedding style dress and a dark wig as he stepped into Kendall’s shoes to recreate that hair selfie moment which has since seen countless recreations from fans over social media.


Next in Rylan’s sights was Scottish crooner Lewis Capaldi – who celebrated his single Someone You Loved being one number for six consecutive weeks with four consecutive selfies.


Rylan can be seen throwing up the peace sign with a towel wrapped around his head and wearing those famous red shades.


One of the internet’s original viral selfies was Justin Bieber where he revealed his fresh tattoos – smashing the one million like mark with the post in the process.


Rylan posed in moody tour bus lighting, with the replicas of Bieber’s tattoos and quiff reaching for the sky in a bid to channel Justin Bieber’s bad boy era.


And finally, Rylan got tucked up with the iconic football trophy – just like soccer ace Lionel Messi, who’s selfie in bed with the trophy went viral alongside a carousel of pictures. The iconic image bagged a whopping 54.8 million likes after his heroics bringing home the world title for Argentina.


Rylan teamed up with Samsung to mark the launch of its competition to win half a million pounds by just taking a selfie on the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5.


He said: “I’m the self-confessed king of selfies and on some days one selfie can lead to taking a 100. I loved recreating some of the most famous celebrity selfies of all time to launch Samsung’s nationwide competition to win half a million quid – just by taking a selfie. Get snapping people!”


Annika Bizon Marketing & Omnichannel Director at Samsung said “Selfies have become part of our culture, and our new promotion celebrates this like never before. Our latest foldable phones are a must have for selfie lovers everywhere, packed with innovative camera features. 


“We are delighted to be working with Rylan, he is definitely up there in the selfie hall of fame so the perfect person to bring this campaign to life. It couldn’t be easier to enter The Samsung 500k selfie competition, simply pop into your nearest participating store and snap a selfie on the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 & Z Fold 5 for your chance to win.”


To be in with a chance to win £500,000, entrants need to head to a Samsung store or participating retailer between now and 24th September, and take a selfie on the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 or Z Fold 5.
