Rylan shows off his 'natural ginger hair' after running out of beard dye | The Sun

PRESENTER Rylan Clark shocked fans when he posted a picture of himself showing off his natural ginger hair.

The Eurovision host, 34, known for his trademark jet black hair and beard, took to Twitter and shared with fans that he had run out of beard dye and captioned the post: "I MIGHT try natural for a bit."

He added: "Beard shaved… Run out of colour… Ginger for a day." Clearly proud of his natural look he then jokingly continued: "Just call me ginger spice."

And while he has done his best to disguise his natural hair since shooting to fame in 2010, it looks as though his fans are keen for him to go back to his roots.

One fan said: "I really like it; think I might actually prefer it!" While another added: "Throwing my tuppence worth into the conversation, think this looks great on you I'd vote keep it this way if you were asking!"

A third wrote: "Looks good still Rylan."

But this is not the first time Rylan, who became a household name in 2012 when he appeared on X Factor, has revealed his natural ginger locks.

In October last year, he posted a picture of himself as a young boy with spikey ginger hair as he revealed that he had started using dye since the tender age of 14.

But it seems his decision to cover up his natural hair colour was born out of being bullied at school. Speaking to The Sun he candidly said:"I always struggled with how I looked growing up."

He added: "At school I was the little fat ginger kid and used to get picked on. I was quite camp, so the gay thing played its part. I used to start dying my hair at 14."

As an adult looking back on his childhood years, Rylan admitted that he "regrets" taking such lengths to fit in.

He continued: "Do I sit here and have any regrets? Yes we all have regrets. I would love nothing more than to grow my hair out, stop colouring it, not have to trim my beard…but I created a look that people recognise."
