People wear their finest gowns and even to put the bins out

Mundane household chores have been given a glamorous makeover as people don ballgowns and even to put their bins out during lockdown.    

More than 12,000 people have joined the Facebook group Put Your Bins Out in Your Ballgown, where members post pictures dressed in their finest attire for everyday chores.  

The group was set up by charity director Angie Emrys-Jones, 43, from Truro, Cornwall, who found herself with nowhere to wear her fancy frock after the black tie ceremony she had been due to attend was cancelled.

In a bid to spread joy while in lockdown, Angie decided to start wearing her ballgown around the house and shared pictures of herself with friends.

Her friends loved the idea which spurred Angie to create the dazzling Facebook group. 

And people have shared hilarious videos of pictures in their house with one member revealing that 'mopping has never been so glamourous'. 

Several members have posted videos of themselves putting their bins out in their best clothes to keep during the coronavirus lockdown, while others have taken to cutting their grass in tuxedos.
