Mark Owen shocks Strictly viewers with ‘unrecognisable’ appearance

Mark Owen left Strictly Come Dancing viewers utterly gobsmacked tonight with his appearance with Take That on Strictly.

Appearing alongside Gary Barlow and Howard Donald, Mark stood on a platform as he sang their latest song while dancers performed around them.

But the 46-year-old shocked fans of the BBC dancing show with his new man bun and facial hair – so much so that they could barely recognise him.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to comment in shock.

A third remarked: "I’m sorry but anyone watching #Strictly think that Mark in Take That look ‘DIFFERENT’ didn’t even recognise him to begin with?"

One commented: "Completely distracted from watching properly by Mark Owen’s hair/beard ard and the back of Kate’s dress. May need to rewind. #strictly."
