Olly Murs has The X Factor! Will new look make you want to dance with him tonight? Take a look...

We’re used to The X Factor lot having drastic makeovers, BUT we didn’t expect this from Olly Murs.

Olly has just finished the final leg of his Australian ‘Never Been Better‘ tour. And it seems that Olly has been taking some styling tips from the sufer dudes Down Under.

The X Factor co-host teased followers with a selfie on his Twitter account last night, sporting *new* long flowing locks (and cheeky grin)– and we’re (kind of)  liking it!

However, it seems as if a LOT of people were definitely NOT loving it. Boo! With one person adding: ‘My cat called, they want their hair back’ – ouch! Cats are cute, RIGHT? Apparently not…

And Oh My Goodness, it didn’t get any better. Most people couldn’t help but notice the uncanny likeness to Scooby Doo‘s best mate, saying: ‘you look like Shaggy from Scooby Do’.

But we think that Olly was trying to go for the ‘I’m-in-the-boy-band’ look. Despite repping the trademark sweepy hair, people couldn’t help to Tweet:’One Direction called, they want their hair back.’ Perhaps he is getting ready to replace Zayne? Or, maybe not…

It could even be a new look to impress fellow co-host Caroline Flack – as we know that Flacky does like members of 1D!

If you’re not a fan, don’t worry, Olly has reassured us that it’s only a wig, after captioning the pic with: ‘Should I grow my hair?! – phew! We couldn’t deal with the Olly hate.

Maybe it’s time to put the wig in the Mystery Machine, and come back home now, Ol.
