Olly Murs compares himself to Home Alone's Marv as he shares snap of crazy hair

They look identical!

Olly Murs has compared his overgrown hair to that of Home Alone's Marv Merchants.

The 36-year-old singer has been forced to go without his regular haircuts due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic - and it appears his locks are certainly paying the price.

Ben said at the time: "Always a real treat to see Olly Murs on top form and revealing his new barnet!

"He was suitably excited and star stuck by Kate Garraway post the jungle! Another young admirer Kate!"

When are salons reopening?

Olly might have to wait a bit longer for a cut after it was recently announced salons won't open until July 4 at the earliest – with hairdressers falling into phase three of the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Salon workers will have to adhere to social distancing guidelines, while masks will be implemented for all staff and customers.

Cleaning of equipment and premises will also become more thorough as well as performed more frequently.

Meanwhile, the waiting area is unlikely to continue. Instead customers will be asked to queue outside before their appointment.

Last month, the Health Secretary Matt Hancock explained that the Government is doing "everything they can" to get them back up and running again.

He said: "We are working on what it would look like to have the protective equipment in place.

"Hairdressing, like so many industries, we're doing everything we can to support them through what is inevitably an incredibly difficult time."

It appears Olly isn't the only one to have suffered with overgrown locks during lockdown, with the likes of Samia Longchambon and Peter Andre taking matters into their own hands with DIY trims.
