Colin’s hair before and after!

During the episode of Bargain Hunt, Colin looked almost unrecognisable with his long locks.

The presenter of the series also pointed out Colin’s transformation which may have been due to lockdown and no barbers being open!

Viewers take to Twitter over Colin’s hair

By the looks of Twitter, Colin’s haircut has many viewers shocked. One wrote that he almost “spat out his tea“, another said: “Just watching bargain hunt ? Omg is Colin young , the auctioneer hoping for a remake of planet of the apes ? Or can’t be arsed to get a human haircut?”

Someone else Tweeted that Colin is “morphing in James May” of Top Gear.

However, it’s most likely that Colin decided to opt for a change in hairstyle and is embracing his new look. One person Tweeted back in June 2021 about his hair, too: “Oh my god wow Colin young got changed his new hair and I can called him DOC from back to the future“.
