Some adults – and indeed some celebrities too – are also getting involved in the trend.

One such celebrity is Amanda Holden – who took to Instagram to share her World Book Day outfit with her followers.

The 52-year-old opted to dress up as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz for World Book Day this year.

She uploaded a number of photos of herself to her Instagram today showing off her Dorothy outift.

In one post, Amanda, can be seen skipping with Ashley Roberts and Jamie Theakston, who are dressed as the Cowardly Lion and Tin Man respectively.

However, fans of the star seemed to take issue with how short her Dorothy dress is in the posts.

Some accused the star of “attention-seeking” with her outfit.

“Why does Amanda have to have a sexy dress!!!!! Just be bloody Dorothy!!!” one of her fans fumed.

“Because she wouldn’t get attention if she did that,” another of the Britain’s Got Talent star’s followers replied.

More Attention seeking.

“Typical Amanda wearing a short dress!! More Attention seeking,” a third then commented.

However, some of her followers were loving Amanda’s outfit.

“Omg amazing,” one of her followers commented.

“Brilliant,” another then wrote. “How cute do you look, Amanda,” a third then said.
