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."
