First Dates star Fred Sirieix appeared on The One Show last night (April 8) and viewers quickly noticed something different about him.

What has First Dates star Fred done to his hair?

Another added: “Oh no Fred, step away from the hair dye!!!!”

On closer inspection, however, it appears Fred is just like the rest of us.

With hairdressers not reopening till Monday, his hair has simply grown.

However, swooning Fred fans quickly decided that they loved his hair transformation, with some calling it “très chic”.

Of course, translated from Fred’s mother tongue French, it means very stylish.

And we couldn’t agree more!

What did Fred chat about on The One Show?

Fred appeared on the show alongside pregnant Alex Jones and co-host Amol Rajan to chat about Snackmasters.

The show sees top chefs tasked with recreating popular British snack foods, such as Wagon Wheels and Monster Munch.

And Fred shocked with the revelation that the first time he’d ever tried the latter was during the filming of the new series.

“That can’t be true,” a shocked Alex stated.

Amol added: “How could you have got through to this stage of your life without eating a pickled onion Monster Munch?”

Snackmasters airs on Channel 4, Tuesdays at 9pm.
