What couple costumes are trending for 2017?

Most of us grew up watching Mary Poppins, and couples are throwing it back by dressing as the famous nanny and chimney sweep Bert for Halloween.

Searches for pics of Bert and Mary costumes are up a huge 365 per cent from this time last year, according to the data crunchers at Pinterest.

Eddy and Patsy from Ab Fab (+170%), Heinz Ketchup costumes (+300%) and Oompa Loompas (+50%) are also popular choices.

And everyone’s searching for Harley Quinn costumes this year – inspired by Margot Robbie’s Suicide Squad look.

Why not make it a couple’s affair by getting your fella to dress as The Joker from Batman?

While 2017 hit movie Beauty and the Beast, and the ever-popular Game of Throne TV series are likely to be common choices.

From the seriously creepy to the downright hilarious, these are some of our favourite couple costumes for October 31…
