Paddy McGuinness confused for Joe Wicks as he shows off long hair in new look

Paddy McGuinness was mistaken for Joe Wicks after sharing a new selfie on Instagram which showed him sporting much longer hair than usual.

The Top Gear host, 47, looked worlds away from his usual self in the photograph, which had a filter on it, giving Paddy shoulder-length wavy hair and a flawless complexion.

The dad of three, who recently shared a sweet message of support to his ex-wife Christine, jokingly captioned the post: "8 hours solid sleep last night. #nofilter".

The selfie quickly racked up thousands of likes and many of Paddy's followers were quick to comment, with some comparing him to fitness trainer Joe, 37, along with other celebrities.

"I thought it was Joe Wicks!" one person wrote, as a second joked: "I loved your PE during lockdown."

A third fan said: "Mmmmm, cant decide if you are Russell Brand or Joe Wicks," and a fourth wrote: "When you order Joe Wicks from WISH."

Others compared him to Billy Ray Cyrus and Strictly Come Dancing star Graziano Di Prima, with one fan writing: "You look like Graziano off of Strictly!"

Professional dancer Graziano even joined in, adding: "Now I can tell you were right!! #twins," with a laughing emoji.

Paddy's new look comes after it was claimed the TV presenter has grown close to Kirsty Gallacher following the end of his marriage to Christine McGuinness.

Paddy was papped with television presenter Kirsty at the Ham Yard Hotel last week, following a night out in London’s Soho, and a source close to Paddy has claimed that the pair have been "leaning on each other" since their respective break-ups and that a blossoming romance could be on the cards.

The insider told OK!: "Paddy and Kirsty have known each other a long time and are good friends. They have a lot in common. They’re both single and have gone through marriage splits, Paddy more recently.

"Kirsty is a bit of a shoulder for him to lean on and she’s good at giving advice."

Paddy and ex-wife Christine, 34 – who together share eight year old twins Leo and Penelope and daughter Felicity, six, – officially announced the end of their 11-year marriage in July 2022.

Meanwhile. Kirsty split from her former rugby player husband of 16 years, Paul Sampson, back in 2015.
