Marilyn Monroe as you’ve NEVER seen her before leads the hordes of revellers in fancy dress

Scores of festive revellers descended upon the streets of Manchester to enjoy a night of heavy partying during the annual Boxing Day fancy dress parade in the town. 

In a bid to continue the festive celebrations, hundreds of alcohol-fuelled party-goers donned their best Christmas fancy dress outfits as they hit the bars and clubs of Wigan.

Swapping a night in at home to brave the cold temperatures, the young revellers hit the city streets to enjoy the next installment of the festivities.

The bizarre tradition in the Lancashire town saw an array of eccentric looking characters from the terrifying Jigsaw from the Saw movies to three sombre looking red-cloaked handmaids inspired by the American drama The Handmaid’s Tale.  

In another scene a young reveller was spotted striking a pose dressed as American actress Marilyn Monroe while another was seen dressed as the Riddler from Batman alongside two side-kicks dressed as prisoners from Guantanamo bay.

Crowds of party-goers dressed in fancy dress were also spotted queuing up to enter a number of bars and clubs in the town centre in celebration of the bizarre tradition.
