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 tresses.
“So Im back at work today and I decided to go for a little change while I was away,” Andrea, 48, explained in a video as she showed off her new look.
“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 very divisive and several of Andreas followers werent so keen.
“Sorry not a good look makes you look so much older,” one wrote, whilst a fellow fan posted: “Noooooooooo your fabulous as a brunette.”
And one added: “Love you, but hope this is a joke haha”
Fortunately for those who werent very impressed by the change, Andrea later confessed that her blonde crop was indeed a wig.
The mum-of-two donned the hairpiece to dress up as ABBA with her Loose Women co-stars Linda Robson, Nadia Sawalha and Anne Diamond.
Andrea posted a clip after the show explaining: “Hello everyone, Im 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 dont think Ill be going blonde… or will I?”
Andrea also reassured her fans on Instagram: “Very happy being a brunette youll 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.
