Gemma Atkinson has debuted a new hairdo after telling fans she was going “for the chop”.

The former Emmerdale actress, 34, ditched her long blonde locks for a new shoulder-length ‘do, featuring a mix of light and honey blonde highlights.

The star first posted a video to her Instagram Stories on Sunday of her hair in foils as she told fans: “We’ve gone for the chop!”

It comes just a couple of weeks after her boyfriend Gorka Marquez also showed off a new hairdo on Instagram.

Beside a photo of himself posing with his new hairstyle, Gorka said: “FEELING FRESH after my new hair cut,” before thanking his barber.

But fans were divided over the new ‘do, with some people loving the style while others told Gorka his hair was “too short on the sides”.

One person wrote: “Looking good fella,” while another said: “How do you get cuter by the day? Please tell me!”

However, a third commented: “Too short at the sides,” while another agreed, commenting: “Should have left the sides on.”
