Alison Jackson burst onto the scene with her fake photographs of Princess Diana and Dodi Al-Fayed cradling their mixed-race love child.
Since then, Alison has gone on to create multiple photos of the royal family and other well-known celebrity figures.
She won a BAFTA for her work on the BBC 2 series Doubletake, a comedy using celebrity look-alikes to play their doubles in embarrassing situations, as seen through CCTV footage and homemade videos.
Alison then went on to make a mockumentary series with Channel 4 about George W. Bush and Tony Blair as well as a film called Blaired Vision, which depicts Tony Blair's exit from office.
Ms Jackson's most recent work focuses on Donald Trump!
From controversial relationships with Miss Mexico and the Ku Klux Klan, to his obsession with his fake tan and hair.
Trump has been the focus of Alison's work, despite threats of being sued by the current president.
Now, Ms Jackson is set to bring her art to life in a world premiere spectacular show at Leicester Square Theatre from 5 to 7 March 2019, in which she shares her secrets behind her scandalous images.
