Ben Cohen has unveiled quite the dramatic hair transformation - and it's certainly created a buzz as the nation continues to get to grips with life in lockdown! On Wednesday, the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant debuted his newly-dyed blonde look after his partner Kristina Rihanoff and his children worked their magic. Sharing a series of photos of his hairstyle, the rugby star explained: "Things I do to keep the family entertained!!"

His followers rushed to comment, with one writing: "Kristina and the girls got you good lad." Another joked: "It really suits you! Change your name to Claus." A third post read: "Wow... at least it will grow out." However, some were quick to point out that Ben needs to tone down the dye, with a fan suggesting: "Nice but needs silver shampoo or a ash toner. A little yellow."

Of his daughters' close bond, Ben explained how the three girls are "besotted with each other", adding: "It's amazing when you see them together. They live for one another and they're best mates.
