A peace of history: Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh recreate iconic John Lennon and Yoko Ono protest for charity

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Millie Mackintosh and Professor Green may divide opinion based on their music or marriage. But the two will add further Marmite appeal after they recreated the iconic image of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in a bid to raise money for charity. The move is designed to showcase the launch of River Island’s new Come Together charity T-shirt, in support of international charity War Child.

The husband and wife mirror the legendary pair's famous statement in the classic 'Bed-In' image of John and Yoko in the presidential suite at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel, which was used to promote world peace and speak out against the Vietnam War. Millie Mackintosh said: 'It’s an honour to be involved in this campaign. The original image is one that is moving to us all, and the work that War Child does is something that we can all be inspired by. On top of that, the T-shirt is gorgeous, so I hope everyone will get behind this and wear theirs with pride!'  Meanwhile, Professor Green commented: 'It’s great to be involved in recreating such an iconic shot with Millie. The T-shirt is in aid of a fantastic cause and carries a strong message that hopefully everyone will get behind!'
