Phillip Schofield is best known for making us laugh next to best friend Holly Willoughby on This Morning, and of course, his trademark silver hair.

So the 55-year-old managed to completely shock his fans over the weekend when he shared an almost unrecognisable throwback photo.

Taking to Instagram, the young Dancing On Ice star can be seen tanned, fresh-faced and wearing a lilac shirt as he gives a cheeky smile.

But the biggest surprise of all was that the telly heartthrob’s hair was dark brown.

“Who is THAT guy!!!! (his hair wasn’t brown even then!!),” Phil joked next to the incredible photo.

Naturally, the star’s 1.8million followers were quick to comment on the photos, which racked up more than 85k likes in a matter of hours.

“Gosh i had such a crush on you back then,” gushed one fan. Another agreed: “Omg u look STUNNING Phillip!”

While a third added: “Once a dish, always a dish!!”

But it looks like most followers actually prefer him with his grey hair, as one commented: “You’ve definitely improved with age, like a fine wine! #silverfox.”

“I prefer you now… a silver fox,” said another, and a third added: “He’s definitely got better with age x”.

Meanwhile, the TV host has also been sharing photos from his exciting weekend as he partied with the likes of Emma Bunton, Ricky Wilson and Keith Lemon.

THAT was a fun Friday 😊

The celebs enjoyed a big night out with Gino D’Acampo on Saturday night for the launch of his new restaurant in Manchester.

And kicking their weekend off in style, the whole crew even travelled up north in a swanky private jet and spent most of the journey popping champagne.

Former Spice Girls star Emma shared a snap on her Instagram page with the caption “#friends #manchestermassive”.

#friends #manchestermassive ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
