His co-host Louise Minchin, who originally shared the same photo on Instagram Stories, also mentioned her own hair – and wrote: "Can't wait to be allowed a haircut." Despite her concerns over her longer hair, fans loved the look. "Looking good both," said one.

Back in July, Dan revealed he "butchered" his own hair after he had convinced his wife Sarah to finally give him a lockdown trim. At the time, the 43-year-old praised his spouse for doing an "amazing" job, but after getting scissor happy, he confessed he had ruined all of her hard work.

In fact, Dan couldn't even share the results of his new 'do because he said it is "so bad", so he shared a hilarious throwback photo of himself as a child sporting a rather questionable hairdo.

Captioning the snap on Instagram, he wrote: "My wife finally agreed to cut my hair. She has done an amazing job. ‪Sadly, I decided to have a little trim of the fringe afterwards and... I have butchered it. It is SO bad I can’t even show you an actual picture of the scissor shame. This will have to do."

The broadcaster is a father to three young children; son Joe, and two daughters Susanna and Jessica. He married wife Sarah in 2001 after they met while studying at the University of Sheffield, where Dan graduated with a Masters degree in broadcast journalism in 1999.
