Strictly Come Dancing star Louis Smith made a groundbreaking announcement about his gymnastics career on Lorraine – yet fans were more bothered by his barnet.
The double Olympic silver medal winner starred on Thursday’s episode of the ITV chat show in a interview which saw him confess he was retiring from the sport.
Yet viewers were hugely distracted by his highly volumised hair-do, with the perfect bouffant design compared by many to cartoon character, Johnny Bravo.
One took to Twitter to quip: “Ooofty has Louis Smith modelled his hair on Johnny Bravo?” as another asked: “Who told Louis Smith that Iced Gem hair cut was acceptable.”
A third continued: “What’s going on with this guys haircut choices over the years, first a man bun, now this,” while one put: “Check than Barnet out.”
Another fan then rounded off with: “#lorraine big big announcement with his big big hair.”
Meanwhile, Louis told how he made his decision to call time on his professional sporting career at a time when he was forced to consider upping his regime to get back to a competitive level for upcoming tournaments.
He told host Lorraine Kelly how it was a “very tough decision” and how in the sporting world, the 29 year old was “getting on a little bit”.
The Strictly champion added: “Certain situations arise, the qualification process has changed and there’s a minuscule chance I will qualify.
“New opportunities come up and I have to make smart choices and unfortunately, I can’t keep putting on a leotard.
“It has been a very hard career but a very fun one, and very rewarding.”
Lorraine continues every weekday at 8.30am on ITV.
