After coming out as transgender earlier this year, Caitlyn famously used her ‘Call Me Caitlyn’ cover shoot to introduce herself to the world, which Alex has now paid homage to, in the latest issue of Star magazine.

Donning a brown wig, make-up and a corset almost identical to Caitlyn’s, Alex has posed in a similar style, under the headline ‘Call Me Roxanne’ - a nod to his female alter-ego.

Speaking to the magazine, Alex admits feeling an affinity to Caitlyn, claiming: “Bruce [as she was known to the world, before coming out] was mocked because trans people are the last social taboo. We don’t have the same rights.

“Wow, I just said ‘we’. I guess I am. Why not be trans?”

He adds: “I go to a cage fight and I get 99 per cent love, but one guy will say, ‘Where’s your dress, Roxy?’ They try to belittle me.

“I believe in the strong defending the weak. I don’t want to change the world with a gun, but maybe I can change the world with a dress.”
