Emmerdale star looks totally different as he shaves his head amid lockdown

Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden looks totally different as he shaves his head amid Coronavirus lockdown.

The actor — who portrays David Metcalfe in the long-running ITV serial drama — took to Instagram Stories with a video.

The clip — which was sped up — featured Matthew having his head shaved, with assistance from son Buster and wife and co-star Charley Webb.

He captioned the post with: ‘Beard trimmer head shave! Not the best cut I’ve ever had. Thanks Buster.’

During the second clip, he wrote: ‘With a little help from mum…’

Following the clip, Matthew posted a selfie on Instagram — showing off his new hairstyle in the process.

He captioned the pic: ‘Hair by Buster… Face by Bowie… bags under my eyes by Ace… frown on my face by Charley! A family effort for my look today.  #stayhome #stayhealthy #staysafe’

Fans were quick to comment below, with one saying: ‘looking well’, while another added: ‘Love it a real family effort’.

Emmerdale has been forced to shut down production amid the Coronavirus pandemic — as has fellow soap Coronation Street — and, in an effort to ensure both serial dramas remain on air for as long as possible, they have reduced weekly transmissions from their usual six to three.

A spokesperson for ITV explained: ‘ITV has sadly taken the decision to suspend production of the soaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale with effect from Monday 23 March.

‘We’ve been doing our best to carry on filming, whilst adhering to the Government’s latest health guidelines, to ensure we’ve episodes of both soaps airing on ITV until at least the early summer.

‘However, the health and well-being of the production teams, actors, crew and their families is of paramount importance to us and we now feel that the time has come to stop filming. We’d like to thank our viewers for their support and hope they continue to enjoy both soaps in the coming months.’

Emmerdale continues Friday 17 April at 7pm on ITV.
