MEET the man with an A-list phone book responsible for customising the cars of the world’s biggest celebrities.
Based in Enfield, North London, Yianni Charalambous only deals with supercars and his clientele includes heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua, Harry Styles, Gordon Ramsey and countless Premier League footballers.

His work over the years has seen him wrap and design stunning interiors on rare and expensive motors including Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches and Bentleys.
With starting prices from around £2000 that rises to around £10,000, there is nothing that can’t be done in his garage that he calls Yiannimize.
That has included wrapping One Direction’s tour van with the Scooby Doo decals to fitting Playstations in the back of John Terry’s Mercedes Viano.
And he has one person to thank for his rise to the very top – former Arsenal player Bacary Sagna.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: “My first footballer was Bacary, who is my best friend to this day. He’s painted on the wall in the garage because he helped me out.
“I cutomised his Range Rover, wrapping it in gloss white. I also fixed an amazing sound system and put some TVs in there too.
“He asked me to deliver it to the training ground and the reaction he got from his teammates was incredible, they all thought his car looked awesome.”
It was then that the word spread and it wasn’t long before a host of Arsenal players were parking their cars outside his garage.

Footballers then turned to pop icons and when Marvin Humes of JLS wanted a Range Rover customised in white for his wife Rochelle Wiseman, he bagged himself an invite to their Christmas party.
There Yianni met Harry Styles and the rest was all history. He explained: “I met Harry Styles at that party, and we ended up getting on well. He’s a great guy.
“I gave him my Porsche Cayenne and he took it, but I told him whatever you do please look after my wheels.
“I remember I picked up the car from him after he’d finished using it and all four wheels were kerbed, they were battered!”
Yianni’s reputation has grown so much that he has 1.3million subscribers on Youtube who continue to follow his work.
