In dubious honour of Dennis Wise's, let's try to be kind here, 'haircut'.

Dennis Wise graced our screens this weekend with one of the all-time great pundit fashion fails, specifically a haircut (wig?) that positively screams “everything is awesome”…

Naturally we got thinking about other great pundit fashion fails of recent times, and we didn’t have to cast our minds back too far for our first nomination…

Jimmy Bullard

A recent stint on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! has clearly inflated the former Fulham and Wigan midfielder’s opinion of himself into the realms of the godlike.

Unfortunately for Bullard, his interpretation of ‘godlike’ appears to run along the lines as most people’s interpretation of ‘ageing stripper’…

Ian Wright

Every now and then, the Arsenal legend likes to remind us that a pair of spectacles aren’t always conducive to making the wearer look more intelligent…

Oliver Holt

A few years ago, the Daily Mirror’s Chief Sportswriter appeared on Sky Sports staple Sunday Supplement looking like…well, like this:

Oliver Holt

Good grief. So bad was it, in fact, that even the idiot hen Robbie Savage had a pop…

@OllieHolt22 oh no ollie … An Alice band !!!!!!!! Who'd wear one of those lol !! Is it windy in there !

As for Ollie’s lookalike? Well, that’d be our next entrant…

Joey Barton

Holt and Barton have sparred on Twitter in the past, but it seems they’ve at least shared a similar taste for inviting mockery through hairdo…

Just when you think Joey Barton couldnt be more of a bellend, he then has this atrocious hair do! #severussnape pic.twitter.com/LrJzSqmrPA

Gerry Francis

A master of the art, the former Spurs and QPR manager brings the house down every time he appears on-screen. Enjoy…
