Stop what you're doing! Michelle Keegan has just pulled a Kim Kardashian and dyed her lustrous brown tresses a striking platinum blonde - and fans are failing to recognise her!

The former Coronation Street actress is the root of e-v-e-r-y girl's hair envy thanks to her waist-grazing, impossibly shiny, chocolate brown locks but she has just switched things up in a ha-uge way by hitting the bottle of bleach and going in for the chop, too!

Michelle - who transformed her hair for a new TV role - was spotted at London's Wireless festival rocking her brand spanking new barnet but she also took to Instagram (duh!) to show off the totally edgy new look and it has caused quite a stir...

In the helfie (hair selfie, obviously) denim-clad Michelle flipped her choppy, white blonde locks over to one side and pulled a sultry pout for the camera as she hid behind a pair of 60s-inspired sunglasses. She captioned the snap, "No filter just sunlight #other side," and it wasn't long before the likes (42.8K last time we counted) and the comments came flooding in.

Some of Mich's followers didn't even recognise her as they scrolled through their feeds.

"What the heck?! Didn't even realise this was you!" said one of her followers, while another wrote, "I can't believe she did it for a role, I would have demanded a wig. I still think she's gorgeous hahaha."

Even though a lot of people weren't feeling Michelle's in-your-face colour, many fans jumped to her defence!

"It's for a new role guys, chill out!" one wrote, and another user said, "I can't be the only one who likes it, surely? Let the girl experiment! She can always transition back, she has the best hairdressers!"

Michelle isn't the only celeb to show off a whole head of bleached blonde locks lately, though, as Khloe Kardashian and Katie Price have both jumped on the bandwagon - and they look just as fierce.

Keep on doing your thang, Keegs! P.S. More selfies, please.
