Jahmene Douglas has shocked fans by unveiling a totally new look on social media. The 26-year-old, who was a runner-up in the 2012 series of X Factor, looked unrecognisable with platinum blonde hair and blue eyes in snapshots shared on Instagram on Friday, as he opened up about his struggle with racism in the music industry. "If only my brown eyes were blue… would the radio support me like they're supposed to?" he wrote alongside one image. Next to another photo, he commented: "Question: Is it right to have an exclusive 'blue-eyed soul' gene? Especially when it dominates the Top 40 and excludes people like me? Shouldn't it be all inclusive? Shouldn't soul be soul?"
