Emmerdale actor Joe-Warren Plant has wowed fans with his new image.
The TV star had ditched his trademark brunette hair for a bright and trendy blonde look.
Joe, best known for playing the character Jacob Gallagher in the hit ITV soap, has caused a stir off-screen with his bold new image.
The Blackpool actor, who competed in this year’s Dancing on Ice, announced his return to Instagram with a bang on his story reel.
“Back on Instagram. How’s everyone been?” Joe asked his 85.4k social media fans.
He added: “Chillin” with a picture of himself mimicking the peace sign and revealing his dramatic hair transformation.
In another snap the almost unrecognisable 18-year-old poses in a car, with his former medium-shade of brown hair nowhere to be seen.
And Joe was happy to respond to one serious fan who admitted they had struggled mentally because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Struggling after the long lockdown,” posted one fan. “Like a lot of people my mental health has been hard.”
The actor replied: “It’s been a tough one but hang in there! Not too long now.”
Joe starred with longer, curly hair on Emmerdale and in a recent explosive storyline saw his character groomed on the show by an older woman.

Former Emmerdale actors including 2012 winner Matthew Wolfenden have managed to balance both busy projects.
But because of Covid safety precautions the talented teenager admitted he had to take a break from the show so he could focus on ice skating practice with dance partner Vanessa Bauer.
“Emmerdale have written me out of the show for six months," Joe explained. "Basically, my character has gone off to Portugal to visit Alicia, his mum. But they've been pretty flexible, with it being an ITV production they've had cast members do it all the time, and with COVID as well they didn't really want crossing productions.
In an interview with Digital Spy he added: "Because if I contracted it and then was on Dancing on Ice the next day and went to Emmerdale, that's two shows that I've put in jeopardy really.
