Nicola King’s new look divides Emmerdale viewers

She's abandoned her trademark look!

Emmerdale’s Nicola King showed off her dramatic new look this week – but not all fans were behind the image transformation.

Nicola debuted a striking new ‘do when she arrived at Home Farm with a plan for boss Graham Foster.

But it wasn’t her actions that raised eyebrows – it was her barnet!

The long-standing character, played by Nicola Wheeler since 2001, has ditched her trademark blonde locks in favour of a bright crimson look.

As well as the red colour, Nicola’s style was a choppier, layered bob.

Priya Kotecha was quick to notice the dramatic change, as were the fans who rushed to express their opinion on social media!

Arriving at Home Farm in search of boss Graham Foster, Nicola bumped into Priya who joked that she had become a “fiery redhead”.

She said: “It’s a brave choice… I’m joking. It suits you, being a fiery redhead.”

As Nicola plotted against Graham as he flounders in his pit of  despair, fans gathered on Twitter to critique her new look.

One gushed: “Love Nicola’s new look.”

Another added: “Love nicola’s hair switchup.”

Others weren’t so kind, however, with some comparing Nicola’s new look to “Chucky” and the clown from IT.

Some thought Nicola resembled “Janet Street Porter without glasses”, Thelma from Scooby Doo or Most Haunted’s Yvette Fielding.

While one even asked to know the name of the hairdresser!

One wrote: “When did Nicola turn into Yvette Fielding? Both equally as irritating though. Whoever did that dye job needs sacked.”

Another harsh critic said: “I don’t like Nicola hair at all whoever did it must be blind.”

One more simply typed: “What is wrong with Nicola hair???”

Whether fans liked her hair or not, we’ll all have to wait and see if she manages to steal Graham Foster’s fortune from under him.

Or will she meet her match in Kim Tate in 2019?
