Some of the stars of Good Morning Britain have been given a new lockdown look! Ben Shephard, Charlotte Hawkins and Dr Hilary Jones were transformed by the GMB team in a post shared on the show’s Instagram account. Ben, 45, looks vastly different with wild hair that is considerably longer than his usual style. The same applies to Dr Hilary, whose short cropped hair has been swapped for a luscious long silver mane! Charlotte's locks, meanwhile, fall well past her waist. "With the news hair salons may have to remain closed for another six months, here's a glimpse at what the future could look like…" the caption read. "Who is rocking the long hair look the best?"

It seems Ben, at least, might be a fan of his new style! He reposted his photo on his Instagram account, much to the delight of his followers. "Not gonna lie. If teenage me in the late 80s got a sniff of my lockdown barnet, he'd be beside himself. Channelling every great 80's high school movie character!! Party at the back, business at the front, who doesn't love a good mullet? How's yours coming on?" Asked by one fan if his new hair was for real, Ben replied: "If only!"
