Hollyoaks viewers were left hot under the collar on Tuesday evening as Joel Dexter debuted his hunky hair transformation.
The village vicar, played by Rory Douglas-Speed, bumped into his ex-girfriend Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) for the first time in years during the latest E4 first-look episode.
As chemistry sizzled between the former lovers, viewers were distracted by Joel's new look as he ditched his peroxide blonde locks for a curly brown hairdo.
Taking to Twitter, one fan gushed: "Loving Joel's new look."
Another added: "Joel with his brown hair whew."
A third person posted: "Joel's looking gorgeous with curly hair."
A fourth wrote: "Joel's got a new hairstyle!"
During the reunion, Theresa reminisced about their steamy past.
She recalled: "We were like Bonnie and Clyde but like hot. "We were happy weren't we?"
Joel replied: "Us? Yes it was great."
After a short pause, he continued: "Listen, I can't have you dragging up the past.
"I'm happy with Goldie."
In true Hollyoaks fashion, Joel is currently dating Theresa's cousin Goldie McQueen (Chelsea Healey).
Elsewhere, the blackmail plot against the McQueen family continued.
Sylver McQueen (David Tag) was arrested for the murder of his mother Breda McQueen during Monday's first-look episode.
The McQueen family were thrown into a brand new dilemma last week when a sinister culprit started threatening them over their secrets.
Theresa and Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) found a macabre doll stood on the bar at The Dog recently.
The electronic doll read out the seven deadly sins, explaining that all of the family's biggest secrets would be revealed if they didn't pay up.
Sylver quickly realised that the first sin of "wrath" must be about him killing his mother Breda on Monday, and he was desperate not to go back to prison.
With this in mind, Mercedes decided to ask James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) for the money to pay the blackmailer, as compensation for shooting her last year.
When James transferred the money, Sylver breathed a sigh of relief until PC Kiss (Callum Kerr) turned up to arrest him for Breda's murder.
Sylver was released from prison during the recent episode but it's clear that the sinister culprit has more plans for the family.
With six deadly sins remaining, John-Paul McQueen (James Sutton) rightly pointed out that there is more trouble ahead.
Cher told her dad Sylver that she murdered her younger sister, so will the newest McQueen family member be the next person targeted by the mysterious blackmailer?
Hollyoaks continues on Channel 4 on Wednesday at 6.30pm followed by a first-look episode on E4 at 7pm
