Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden has had a major hair transformation.

The soap actor - famed for playing David Metcalfe in the Yorkshire based soap - switched his lush and long mousy locks in favour of a bleached buzzcut style with the help of his wife - actress Charley Webb - and their three sons.

Matthew, 40, allowed his family members to revamp his hair and Charley revealed the results in a video shared on her Instagram page.

The footage showed all the steps that led to the final look - from scissor cutting to shaving and then the last section of the video showed Matthew beaming with his bright blonde look.

"It was a family effort," Charley typed alongside the post.

One fan tried: "Absolutely love it looks so nice xx."

More joined in: "Looks good" and "Looks great suits you x.

In May, the pair spoke to OK! Magazine about how the Coronavirus lockdown was a struggle at times for them.

"There are good days and bad days. On the whole, we’ve got on really well. I’ve realised through this that sometimes you just wake up in a foul mood for no reason. On those days, it’s nice to go out on our walks separately" Matthew revealed.
