Joe McElderry looks so grown up in this picture that we barely recognised him!

The former X Factor winner shared the new photo with fans today (6 August) and it's fair to say he's looking rather dapper indeed.

Joe, 22, is sporting a fine array of stubble in the snap and has neatly slicked his dark hair to one side before starring at the camera.

It is a startling difference to the young lad from Newcastle who shot to fame on the 2009 series of The X Factor.

Back then, Joe had spiky gelled hair, schoolboy looks and a complexion to match. Bless!

We think Joe has aged well, just like a fine wine!
