Stein, Hix, Conran, Corbin and King feature in Sir Peter Blake's recreation of Sgt Pepper album cover

Chefs Rick Stein and Mark Hix are among the famous faces to feature in Sir Peter Blake's recreation of his iconic album sleeve for the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

London restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, celebrity cook Delia Smith and design entrepreneur Sir Terence Conran also feature in the new Blake design, alongside a host of other cultural icons.

The celebrated British artist created the poster reimagining of his most famous work to mark both his 80th birthday and designer Wayne Hemingway's Vintage Festival.

But according to the BBC, Blake was unable to feature the Beatles again.

"I don't own the copyright," he explained. "Part of everything that went wrong at the time was that my agent signed away any kind of royalties and the copyright so we had to ask Apple Corps - the Beatles' management - for permission and they didn't want it to be associated with advertising."
