CORONATION Street star Charlie de Melo has stunned fans with his shaven-headed makeover looking unrecognisable.
The actor - who plays solicitor Imran Habeeb in the ITV soap - usually sports a thick mane of floppy hair on his head.
But with the soap currently unable to film episodes, the actor has taken the decision to shave his head completely for a new lockdown look.
Fans of the actor were stunned at his transformation.
One wrote: "Didn’t recognise you with the haircut Charlie."
A second said: "Is that an end of contract cut? Don’t leave."
Another added: "Wow !! Looks well. I assume u don’t have any continuity when u return to the cobbles."
Over the weekend The Sun on Sunday revealed how Corrie stars had been left in limbo with formal contract negotiations being postponed due to the coronavirus shutdown.
A number of favourites will see their deals expire in the next two months as the shooting of new episodes remains on hold amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
The top names include Samia Longchambon, 37, who plays Maria Connor, Sam Robertson (Adam Barlow), 34, and Charlie, 28.

But while sources say “general conversations” about the future are still taking place, formal discussions over contract renewals have been put on hold.
One source said: “This is a very uncertain time — and that’s particularly true for those whose contracts are up for renewal.
“It was very unsettling for them to be sent home knowing the future isn’t decided.
“The show’s bosses have done everything to reassure them, but until some sort of normality is resumed, negotiations won’t be completed.”
