Lockdown has led to a lot of dramatic hair transformations.

But it seems Strictly Come Dancing champion Kelvin Fletcher is the latest celebrity to experiment with his barnet.

The soap star has left fans shocked after unveiling a brand new lockdown hairstyle.

Kelvin - who won the hit BBC dance show last year - debuted his new bleached blonde hair on social media yesterday.

The father-of-two posted a series of pictures of himself posing with his new hair - but the snaps show the Emmerdale star has kept his dark beard intact.

He captioned the post, ‘What do you reckon @mcguinness.paddy #BeenThroughAFewShades’

To which Paddy replied, ‘Haha fantastic pal!!!!"

Kelvin recently shared with fans on Instagram that they had bought a farm together, with many fans asking where is Kelvin Fletcher's farm?

He wrote, 'What’s the saying.. blondes have more fun?'

Similarly, Made in Chelsea star Miles Nazaire shared his new platinum blonde hair with followers.
