Davina McCall's boyfriend takes responsibility for her new hairdo as fans complain

Davina McCall' s boyfriend has revealed that he was the one who is behind her brand-new hairstyle.

The 55-year-old TV star unveiled a dramatic new hairstyle as she returned to The Masked Singer over the weekend - and it completely divided fans.

Sporting her new style, Davina debuted a severe fringe as she returned to the celebrity judging panel alongside Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan.

Replacing her signature long bob and middle parting with a blunt fringe, Davina's look was the talk of viewers that tuned in to see this year's disguised contestants.

Some fans said she looked like she'd cut her fringe 'with a knife and fork' while others compared her look to Courteney Cox's appearance in 1997 horror Scream 2 and Strictly host Claudia Winkleman.

Meanwhile, another fan likened Davina to Jim Carrey's character, Lloyd, in hit nineties flick, Dumb and Dumber.

As it turns out, it was actually Davina's boyfriend, who is also her hairdresser, created the dramatic look.

Michael Doughlas took to Instagram after the mixed reaction to share a behind-the-scenes look at how he created Davina's daring look - explaining that her new look was actually a £120 wig.
