He’s best known for playing Jacob Gallagher in ITV’s Emmerdale, but Joe-Warren Plant has been causing some off-screen drama this week with a bleach blonde hair transformation.

The Blackpool-born actor, who took part in this year’s Dancing On Ice competition, announced his return to Instagram with a selfie that shows off his new look.

“‘Back on Instagram. How’s everyone been?” Joe asks his fans.

Joe looks almost unrecognisable, as fans will be used to seeing the 18-year old with brunette hair.

Prior to his transformation, Joe had a medium-shade of brown hair. And although he’s played around with length in the past, this is the first time we’ve seen him sporting such a bold colour look.

Some of Joe’s fans responded to his question, with one person writing: “Struggling after the long lockdown. Like a lot of people my mental health has been hard.”

The actor replied: “It’s been a tough one but hang in there! Not too long now.”

Joe isn’t the first soap star to switch up their look over lockdown, though.

Earlier this year, Coronation Street’s Katie McGlynn, who plays Sinead Tinker, wowed fans when she ditched her blonde hair in favour of a candy pink shade.

The 27-year-old actress shared a video of her transformation to TikTok and Instagram, where she’s seen makeup-free, wearing glasses, and dressed in casual clothing.

Katie is then pictured mixing a bowl of hair dye, with a bin-bag draped around her shoulders, before she unveils the final look.

The star reappears with bright pink hair, a full face of make-up, and a pretty floral dress.

“Pink hair don’t care,” she captioned the Instagram post.

Katie was praised by fans, who dubbed the look “stunning” and “amazing”.

The actress has since returned to her blonde roots, but took to Instagram recently to share a snap of her pink hair, telling fans: “I am missing my pink hair though.”

Fans of the star agreed, with one person writing: “I said it before, and I’ll say it again, it still suits you.”

“Love, love, love that colour on you,” another says.
