Damon Albarn, Colin Firth and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke have covered themselves in farm produce and posed for a series of photographs in a bid to highlight the issue of fair trade.

As part of Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign, the stars are swamped in everything from rice to sugar to expose the plight of farmers in the developing world.

A spokeswoman for Oxfam says, "We've had incredible support from a host of celebrities.

"In the images each celebrity has been literally dumped on, and that illustrates exactly what rich countries do to poor countries - dump on them.

British singer Jamelia and Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody also took part in a shoot.
