Meanwhile, Lily isn't the only celebrity taking on grey hair. In April, Una Healy took to social media in a bid to encourage women to embrace their natural tone. Sharing a photo of her greying roots, the Irish beauty wrote: "Isolation greys! I didn't think I would ever feel comfortable enough to post a photo like this and not care! I used to be mortified for having a few greys for years! But there are much more important things to be concerned about right now."

On Thursday's Good Morning Britain, Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard discussed men who dye their grey hair with Richard Blackwood and Jake Quickenden. Speaking against dying hair, soap star Richard claimed it was a form of "vanity," saying: "There's nothing wrong with being vain and loving yourself and your appearance. We keep saying vain like it's a negative, it's not a negative, vanity just means you want to embrace the way you look and enhance that. We dye our greys to hide our age – you're trying to look younger or more appealing, is that not a form of vanity?"

However, Jake argued that he dyes his hair to make himself happy. "I've [dyed my hair] and I'm not afraid to say I've done it," he explained. "We live in a world now that we need to make ourselves happy. We don’t need to feel vain by doing our hair, it's like going to the gym. I'm 31 and I get a few little [grey hairs], I dye my hair pink and have had highlights so I don't think that's vain."
