Former Coronation Street star Shayne Ward sported a shaved head and cropped facial hair while on the ITV soap.
But it seems the X Factor champ wanted to let it all grow after having to rely on the razor for so long.
The 34-year-old made an appearance at the Sellebrity Charity football match at Northampton FC yesterday.
And after slipping into the burgundy football kit, Shayne flaunted a more muscular figure to how Corrie fans may remember him.
However, it was his thick curly hair and long beard that made the actor almost unrecognisable on the pitch.
The new look would come as no surprise to his 287,000 Instagram followers though, who have seen the new look multiple times already.
That didn’t stop them commenting on a recent photo of a suited and booted Shayne – and it’s safe to say they’re divided over the new look.
One person was a fan, commenting: “You look so different now after Corrie [heart-eye emoji].”
“You look absolutely fantastic and very handsome Mr Ward”
Another follower agreed, writing: “You look absolutely fantastic and very handsome Mr Ward.”
And a third added: “Wow! You look so fit and healthy, very trim and dapper.”
But not everyone was liking the new look, with one person saying: “Shave your beard and have a hair cut then you’ll look sexier.”
His girlfriend Sophie Austin is clearly loving the current look though, as she commented a string of flame emojis.
Shayne played Aidan Connor on Coronation Street between 2015 and 2018, with his exit coming in the form of his death.
The tragic character took his own life in May 2018, with his death leaving his loved ones distraught.
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
