CORONATION Street legend Rob Mallard has confused fans by sporting long curly hair and a beard in his latest Instagram photo.
The soap star, 29, looked unrecognisable with shoulder-length locks that appeared out of nowhere.
Rob, who plays Daniel Osbourne in Corrie, wore a leather jacket too and he teased fans by captioning the photo with a winking emoji.
But the new look was rejected by his fans, and one suggested: "Im sorry I don’t like it, you look like Leigh Francis 😂😳"
Another moaned: "Where did all that hair come from? Much prefer the short look but nice for a change x"
A third begged Rob: "No no no!!! Take it off right now 🤣"
And a fourth wondered: "Daniel has quit teaching to be a Chipendale?"
