Andrea McLean made her return to Loose Women today after a summer break - and caused a stir with a very different new hairdo.
The presenter unveiled a short blonde style to her Twitter fans before the show, which proved to be a huge change from her usual long brunette locks.
On a video on her social media, she explained as she showed off her look, “So I’m back at work today and I decided to go for a little change while I was away,”
“I hope you like it.”
Many fans did indeed like it, with one commenting, ‘Looks fabulous, really suits you.’
‘Different but still looking good,” another agreed.
However, the dramatic transformation proved divisive – with a few of Andrea’s followers not so keen.
‘Love you, but hope this is a joke haha’ one wrote, whilst a fellow fan posted, ‘Noooooooooo 😏your fabulous as a brunette.’
Fortunately for those who weren’t as impressed by the change, Andrea later confessed that her blonde hair was indeed a wig.
The mum-of-two had donned the hairpiece to dress up as a member of ABBA, alongside her Loose Women co-stars Linda Robson, Nadia Sawalha and Anne Diamond.
Andrea posted a clip after the show explaining: “Hello everyone, I’m sorry I played a little trick on you but that was so much fun. Here it is, it was a wig.
“You might not have known who I was supposed to be but I was Benny from ABBA, of course! I don’t think I’ll be going blonde… or will I?”
Andrea also reassured her fans on Instagram, ‘Very happy being a brunette you’ll be relieved to hear!’
The presenter seemed to enjoy her brief time as a blonde though, and shared a funny video from behind the scenes as she modelled her ABBA outfit.
Viewers found the ladies’ ABBA performance pretty entertaining too, with many praising it as ‘hilarious’ and ‘fantastic’.
