We had to do a double take, as the actress looks so different from the blonde we were used to seeing in Albert Square!

Jo was appearing on Lorraine to chat about life after EastEnders and admitted that her change in hair colour was an act of teenage rebellion AND for a new role!

She said: "I've had a little makeover! I've been a bit teenage actually, I'm getting to play with my hair for once. It's like when I used to have temporary dyes as a teenage and would work through every colour!"

Explaining the reason behind her brunette tresses, Jo added: "It's one part being a bit teenage and having a go at something new, and then I'm doing a BBC eight-parter at the moment and have gone a bit darker for that."
