    Unsure of the person but the look is Sigue Sigue Sputnik

    Not the best likeness ever but its the net over the face that gives it away.

    Agreed, so likely to be a combination of two people , as GQ says above. i.e. another character dressed as SS Sputnik ďsingerĒ.

    Thanks all.

    I'd agree with Magaret Thatcher dressed as SSSputnik judging by the mouth.

    Cheeks seem too tubby for Margaret Thatcher and I think the nose is the wrong shape.




    The image rings a bell but I can't place it.

    Cheers, that's dealt with Thatcher theory.
    The image does remind me of someone though. Just cant think who.

    Ah wait, could it be Prince Harry?

    Hmm... not quite right. Ears too small.

    Nevertheless, I do seem to recall that Spitting Image did a musical number with William or Harry (or perhaps some other famous baby of the era) as a rocker.

    I thought it was possibly Anthony Howard; a well-known political journalist/commentator of the time.

    This is my opinion.

    And as I mentioned above I now vaguely seem to recall they did a musical number along exactly these lines.

    Baby-cheeked Prince Willy is the best guess so far, ties in to the correct period (1986-ish)
