DAME Judi Dench, George Clooney, Kate Moss and Peter Capaldi are among 60 celebrities lending their faces to a campaign to shame Shell over its plans to drill for oil in the Arctic.

They have been photographed in a T-shirt designed by Vivienne Westwood for Greenpeace bearing the slogan “Save the Arctic”. The photographs will form an exhibition to be unveiled tomorrow at the London Underground station serving Shell’s headquarters in Britain.

For two weeks Shell employees climbing the escalators at Waterloo station will be presented with posters of the images, which have been shot by the celebrity photographer Andy Gotts.

Other stars pictured in the T-shirt — which has been made by a co-operative in Peru — include Sir John Hurt, Tracey Emin, Kylie Minogue and Paloma Faith.

People all over the world understand that the Arctic melting will affect us all.
