Graham kicked off episode two of his new season with a typically flamboyant outfit. His olive-brown slim-fitting single-breasted notch lapel suit was paired with a clashing spread collar purple shirt. The collar of the shirt was two shades of purple, one on either side, and set off his mismatched dark blue tie with yellow, white, and blue flowers perfectly.

On the show, Hugh donned a classic navy blue tweed three-piece suit but gave it a casual twist by pairing it with a white crew neck t-shirt instead of the traditional shirt and tie.

She styled her hair in a wavy bob and accessorised with gold drop earrings.
