One called the 41-year-old Hollywood hunk’s makeover “actually terrifying”, another asked: “How did they make Ryan Gosling NOT hot?

I got done up the same way to hit London’s streets as a living doll and gauge reaction . . . 

First up was a spray tan.

Next, I cut off the arms of a denim jacket and daubed “Ken” on my tightie-whities, then I was off for a wig and make-up — sneaky shadowing for a six-pack look.

All done, I was on my way.

As Ken would say: “Come on, Barbie, let’s go party!”

My first encounter was damning: “Oh my God, you look like Donald Trump!”

But then the party started. “It’s my idea of perfect,”

Nadia Abdullah, 24, told me. “Blond, blue eyes, tanned, abs.”

She and her pal Jamila Nola, 27, were then all over me, hands very near my crotch.

“We want the goods!” they chanted, to my shock and delight.

I had gone from average-looking Brummie lad to babe magnet.

Two tourists then wanted a selfie — and as I posed, a woman across the street trembled in shock.

“It’s Ryan Gosling!” she yelled, before being put right.

I was a hit with all ages, too. Aija Siitonen, 64, ignored her husband’s glower as she told me with a wink: “You pull it off better than Ryan.”

Andrew Foster, 66, waiting for a haircut in Borough Market, fancied copying my style.

He said: “It’s the only colour I’ve never been and it looks good. Quite Annie Lennox.”

But Josh, 30, chipped in: “It looks very fake — Californian.”

Next, I spoke to a trio of Love Island fans.

Molly Blay, 19, said: “Some boys on the show are a bit weird and would love this. It’s unique.”

Gabbi Wolfe said simply: “Bad!”

But Gilbert Kabwende, 20, said: “Ryan doesn’t wear it well but you do.”

Despite people likening me to a Backstreet Boy, H from Steps, and Trump, London kind of liked my Ken look — and I did too.
