Gogglebox star unrecognisable as he poses with stubble and 'Christmas hair' | The Sun

A GOGGLEBOX star has been spotted looking unrecognisable after posing with stubble and new "Christmas hair".

The Channel 4 favourite, who joined the show line-up last year, took to his Instagram to show off his new look.


Simon Minty and his sister Jane have appeared on three series of the show since joining the cast in 2021.

The firm favourites are often seen reacting to the latest telly on Friday night's, with fans watching on from home.

But now, Simon, 53, has been spotted looking almost unrecognisable after changing his hair for Christmas.

The TV star – who is the first person with dwarfism to be part of the Channel 4 show – posed for a selfie today.

He revealed that he had dyed his signature spiky locks bright blonde, and grown out a stubble beard to match.

Pouting for the camera, Simon donned his glasses and kept it casual in a grey jumper and grey jacket for the snap.

"Caught myself in the lift mirror," Simon captioned the post. "Not long finished at the gym, glasses slightly dark, Christmas hair and stubble as it’s been a non-work week.

"For a moment, I felt like I looked like a rock star. Involuntary I then pouted #caughtoncamera #loveyourselffirst."

Future plans for The Traitor revealed – and it's a HUGE update for fans

Simon's friends and fans flooded the comments section to gush over his new look, saying he "looked great".

Former Gogglebox star Lisa Baggs was first to comment, writing: "I think you look great, Simon."

Another fan chimed in: "SO rock and roll," while a third said alongside a Santa emoji: "It really suits you Simon."

It comes after Simon's sister Jane gave fans a rare glimpse at her life behind the cameras, and her "real" job.

She joined the show back in 2021 alongside her brother Simon Minty, and both became quick fan favourites for their sense of humour and healthy eating habits.

After taking a week off from the show, Jane shared what her day-to-day life looks like, including her job in a kitchen.

Dressed in chef's garb, Jane held up a plate of yummy looking lemon cake as she smile proudly towards the camera.

The pair are like many of their Gogglebox co-stars who hold down regular jobs.

The Sun revealed they get £1,500 a month per family plus a free takeaway or two – so it's no surprise the couch potatoes also hold down full-time jobs.
