Looks like Caroline is starting afresh following her departure from The X Factor...

Caroline Flack has signalled that she’s ready for a new chapter after The X Factor by getting a daring new hairdo.

The presenter, whose replacement Dermot O’Leary was announced this week, revealed that she’s gone shorter AND darker in a selfie posted on Instagram last night.

We’re loving this look on Cazza, a woman of many hairstyles, and her fans seem to like it too.

‘LOVE IT!!!!’ one admirer commented, whilst another wrote: ‘Looks great! To be fair though you would look great with ANY hair style and colour! Not fair!!!!’

True, dat. Caroline decided to take the plunge with her short new do after changing the colour from blonde to brunette over the Easter weekend.

The TV star shared a snap of her original longer look on Friday and wrote: ‘Bank holiday brunette . Thanks @shane_o_sullivan’

It’s quire a transformation for Ms Flack, who proved just how dark her new do is when she took an amusing selfie at her mum’s house a couple of days ago.

‘Great photobomb mum flack,’ Caroline wrote about the snap, which shows her mama peeking over her shoulder. LOLs.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star’s revamped mane comes at a time of great change for her.

Last month it was announced that she’d be leaving her role as presenter of The X Factor along with co-host Olly Murs after just a year heading up the show.

They’ve since been replaced by Dermot, who the pair took over from after he bowed out following eight years presenting the programme.

Cazza hasn’t let her departure from the series get her down though. Recently she embarked on a gruelling health kick involving a sugar detox and lots of hot yoga.

There have also been rumours that she could embark on a career change, having been linked to a switch to acting as well as a possible role in the West End.

Nothing like a new do to herald a fresh start, we say!
